believe it or not, NYI actually had better goaltending for most of the season than the Leafs did between Montoya, Roloson, and Poulin vs Reimer (goalies from both teams who had >.900 SV%)

NYI also had more goals for than the leafs who led the league in getting shutout for most of the season

Schenn is a better defenseman overall. all of you look at Hamonic's offensive numbers, but that doesn't explain everything. it's sad and hilarious at the same time. Hamonic's play on ice is average at most.
Theres a reason Schenn doesnt get as much powerplay time, hes just not as good as other players on Toronto's defense. If he is the better defenseman overall, why isnt he used on the powerplay, instead of being behind Matt Lashoff, Brett Lebda, Francois Beauchemin, Carl Gunnarsson in PP TOI?

overall - doesnt mean only defensively, offense matters too.
