    Surprised Dubas hasn’t watched the Stanley Cup playoffs.

    No idea where to put this but I guess this will do. One of the best hockey analytics person out there got promoted big time today.

    He went from a blogger to basically an Assistant GM. That's quite the career path.

    I'm starting to look at small roster upgrades that make sense for Toronto in the present and in the future, particularly on defense.

    I'd like to see Toronto make a move for Mackenzie Weegar from Florida to replace Igor Ozighanov on the third pairing and push OZ to #7 so that we don't have to see Marincin and Holl in the lineup.

    Here is my argument...

    Weegar, at 24, is ascending, and fits the age demographic of this team. He makes $900k and has double the points total (8) on the season of Ozhiganov, in the same #5-#6 role. Here is the catch. He plays with arguably the worst defensive partner in the NHL, Alex Petrovic, and that drags down his +/- (on top of playing for Florida). Last year he played a lot of minutes with Mike Matheson on the 2nd pairing and finished +5 in his first season, playing 60 games. This year he is on pace to up his point total 2.5× from last year.

    Weegar is a RHD, is a well above average, 2 way skater (a need playing with Toronto), a guy who hits and is a willing fighter. His -5 is not an indication of the way he's played this season and when he isn't stuck with Petrovic, he's really productive. 3 times this season injury has forced him to move up to the 2nd pairing with Matheson. In all three of those games he has recorded points and a + rating. He had 2 primary assists last night when they moved him up to the #2 pairing. He penalty kills as well.

    When talking about upgrading the D-core right now, and finding cheap, quality replacements in the future to replace contracts like Hainsey's, I think the kid could be a really nice fit as a player you cement on your bottom pairing while the likes of Sandin and Liljegren develop for bigger roles. I'd bet he'd already have 12-13 points on the season and be a + player (he was last year) if he played in Toronto instead of Florida.

    Doesn't really mean much, team/players/coaching/experimenting/etc always adjusting to missing players

    Super irratating how we can go from arguably our best game of the season Friday to our worst 24 hours later.

    I would include how the Islanders also played the night before, so no one can use the back to back games as an excuse.

    Ive never bought the back to back excuse.

    I work a physically demanding job literally 5 days a week. The human body can withstand it

    I agree, however I think there are some fans who might think that and should realize the Islanders also played the night before just like the Leafs did.

    My favourite fun fact of the season so far: Pär Lindholm has more points (11) than Milan Lucic (8).

    You have to get ratings. So going after Willy gets ratings. I think Carlo's point is a month too early to make. But it is what some fans want to hear.

    Another fun fact, Milan Lucic is the only forward besides RNH, McDavid and Draisaitl who has yet to be healthy scratched this season on the Oilers. One of those things is not like the other...
