What Can We Expect From The Leafs' Players This Year?

How exactly did this happen? Oh right, the ASG was in Montreal.
PDO is a beautiful thing. While not perfect, it gives us insight on who we can expect to have a bounce back season, or who we can expect to fall back to earth.

If you want to make a couple bucks by the end of the season, do this: find one of your stupider buddies that doesn't read this blog (hint: should be easy to find) and bet him that 1) Ryan Getzlaf will have a bounce back season and 2) Erik Karlsson will see a regression on his point totals. Both of these players had an outlier season in terms of On Ice SV% and On Ice SH% (what determines a players' PDO), likely affecting each players' point totals.

Anyways, this is a Leafs focused blog so follow me over the jump to see what we can expect from the good guys this year.

The NHL is Back, 113 Day Long Panic Attack: Over.

Congratulations everyone, the NHL lockout is over. I know a lot of you said you would never come back and that "enough is enough" (I flirted with the idea myself) but let's not kid ourselves, you're wearing your Toronto Maple Leafs hat, boxers and socks right now, just like me. Now that the handshakes are over and meaningless apologies have been handed out it's time to start doing what we all do best: bitching about the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Stairway to Heaven Plays on the Radio; Maple Leafs Lose

Habs Eyes on the Prize

It was a night that usually turns out so well: Tuesday night, in Florida, against a SE division opponent, the only thing missing was the game being on LeafsTV. Okay, by now you should know I'm kidding, all of those things combined usually spells disaster for the Leafs and a nasty hangover for Leaf fans the next day.

Tuesday night started out as well as any other night does, the Maple Leafs were down 1-0 through 1, and 2-1 through 2. Of course they lost 5-2 and most fans have dreams of Mikhail Grigorenko (would be cool to have two Mikhail's) in their heads. 

Follow me over the jump for highlights, lowlights, the three stars and three stooges.
