    Not sure about this corsi thing. It doesn't appear to take into account special teams or quality of chances. One of my "friends" who isn't a Leaf fan is saying how the Leafs are all awful yada yada yada. I proved to him with stats that we are a dominate team 8 games into the season.

    Here goes

    Tied for first in the conference (12 points, I know 3rd with tie
    breakers)

    Tied for second in the league in points (12)

    3rd ranked power play (29%)

    4th ranked penalty kill (87.1%)

    Best special teams by a land slide

    Goals for per game in NHL (6th)

    Goals against per game in NHL (11th)

    Goals for/against ratio 1.14/1 (13th) average but special teams win games

    4 ppg or better players (Lupul, JVR, Kessel, Raymond)

    Tied for 3rd dman in points (Franson)

    Bernier .940 save%(goalies 5 or more games played he is ranked 5th)

    Reimer .917 save%

    Injured winger on every line

    Injured top 6 dman

    Getting it done with rookies

    Getting it done with the youngest team in the NHL

    The only area where the Leafs are not dominate happen to be shots for/against per game and face off %. Can't be good at everything I guess.. but we are dominate in the categories that win games (goals for and special teams).

    The sick thing is this team can and will improve a lot as the season progresses. We will hopefully get healthy and our younger guys will only become better with more NHL experience.

    This Leaf team is going to be very special for many years to come. What we saw last year wasn't a fluke. Are we an anomaly? Tell that to our special teams and on ice success.

    Correction!

    Tied for the league lead with Jonathon Quick (Vezina / Stanley Cup Winner) and Roberto Luongo!

    Dominating stats? Hardly dominating on the ice if you have been paying attention. The teams they have faced have hardly been juggernauts. Have they played a team yet that can be considered a lock for the playoffs? (Maybe Ottawa?)

    They really need to play better if they hope to make the playoffs...seriously. But granted they are missing some key players..and cannot fault them for winning the games they SHOULD win...but hardly dominant.

    Every team is a lock for the playoffs, until Toronto exposes their terribleness, that is.

    UTTERLY ELITE TALENT

    Exactly. Every goaltender lets in a stinker once in a while. No big deal really.

    ummm...yeah. Montreal...bubble team. Flyers...awful. Sens (I expect them to make it).
    Avalanche...good young team..but Buds were outplayed and lost. Preds...going nowhere. Oilers...outplayed..outchanced the Leafs...Dubnyk absolutely stunk....another bubble team. Wild...possible playoff team but hardly a lock. Canes..dont think so but beat the Leafs anyway...

    exaggerate much?

    Personally I think face off win% is a undervalued stat. Just imagine how lethal our team would be if we had a guy like Bergeron who can win a good chunk of those offensive zone face offs and get the puck quickly to JVR or Kessel.

    Irrelevant. They are pro players playing against other pro players. Winning games is all that matters.

    Out pp and pk will get us in to playoffs but the 5on5 play will win us series when the refs put away their whistles. This is what we have to improve.

    Hmmm remember when the Canucks were "the best regulation team there ever was" and got stomped by the LA Kings in the playoffs?
