    Curious how hard all their lads (and JT) play this season for the last 3% of their salaries after getting their bonuses half a year ago.

    In total around 300M was paid out around the league in signing bonuses in July. Leafs total of that was 60M, or 20%. ;)

    Does everyone on Twitter have their own model?

    Maybe #SimulationNumberOne is actually simulation #1,437, and is the best possible outcome for the Leafs if Andersen goes prime Hasek for the season. It's just shortened to #SimulationNumberOne, you know, to be concise.

    We have some free spots in a GM Game if anyone's interested. It doesn't take much effort at all - you pick a team, trade, sign free agents, etc. They're a lot of fun.

    That’s because he doesn’t play for the Oilers. Haha.

    So as a follow up to this, 90 points in 56 games is a .804 P% which would make it the 5th best season by P% in NHL history and 3rd best in the modern era, narrowly edging out the 2012-13 Blackhawks who were President's Trophy winners that lockout shortened year with an .802 P% in 48 games, and behind only two powerhouse Canadiens teams of the 70's. Of the 4 teams with P% better than .804 only the 1930 Boston Bruins didn't win the Cup (losing to the Canadiens in a best-of-3) so maybe that's driving some of this fantasy.

    NHL Records
    Ranking the Most Dominant Regular Season Campaigns in NHL History

    Oh and by the way, most sports books have Toronto outside the top 5 in 2021 Stanley Cup betting odds at somewhere between +1300 and +1600. So to have that kind of season this coming year would be pretty remarkable, even within an all-Canadian division. As I posted in the previous iteration of this thread the Leafs' record last year against Canadian opponents wasn't even best amongst Canadian teams. See below 2019-20 records of Canadian teams vs. other Canadian teams:

    Winnipeg: 9-3-0
    Montreal: 10-3-2
    Calgary: 8-4-2
    Toronto: 7-3-4
    Edmonton: 7-6-1
    Vancouver: 5-9-0
    Ottawa: 2-8-4

    Why do Toronto media and fans even do this crap? It just puts more pressure on the team to succeed. They'd be better off underselling the Leafs and that would probably help the team do better given there would be less pressure. Of course that would be really hard on some fragile egos in the center of the universe but maybe...just maybe, it would be a step in the right direction towards ending a 53 year Stanley Cup drought.

    I don't know about guys' looks in Philly but I'm pretty sure you could find 20 guys who look very similar to Hart in the Edmonton area. That's not a distinct face in Alberta.

    That is kind of what I was thinking.

    I probably would not recognize him either.

    According my very very very advanced simulation, using triple integrals and everything, Toronto is only getting 8 wins this season.

    it's weird - my 'super advanced' model shows a little different:

    Edmonton 56 wins 0 losses
    Toronto 0 wins 60 losses
    Win 0 wins 56 losses
    Ott 0 wins 56 losses
    Mon 0 wins 56 losses
    Van 0 wins 56 losses
    Cal 0 wins 80 losses

    Calgary/Toronto/Vancouver with 0 wins for the season and all in last place. Toronto and Calgary with the most losses!

    It's weird but 100 percent legit - everyone loses every game except the Oilers!!!

    I dont mind "analytical" models, they are interesting to look at. And even though they do not have a high success rate, I find they are much better than what the traditional pundits put out at the start of a season

    With that being said, ANY predictions of standings for the 2020-21 season is a fools game. This is a shortened season, started in January, and playing largely against the same teams. There is zero precedences for this.

    This upcoming season you just have to sit back and enjoy the mayhem. Literally, one 10 hot/cold streak could make or break a team

    His greatest accomplishment was embarrassing Treliving in contract negotiations.
