Since Maurice was fired the goaltending has been brutal.

Hasn't mattered who was between the pipes, and whether they rebounded after they left the team or not.

You think Mike Smith in Phoenix wonders if a goaltender coach can have an impact, or maybe a team that has a coach who implements an intelligent system?

The problem is/was:

1) Goaltenders
2) Coaching
3) System
4) All of the above

In 2007-2008 Osgoode had the best GAA in the league. Better than Hasek his partner. Osgoode played 2 more games than Hasek. Maybe Osgoode was underrated, but was he ever the best goaltender?

I think the Leafs could be okay going with the young guys if Carlyle can implement a system, and at this point I doubt there is anyone on the Leafs who will resist changing a system that until now has been a complete failure.

Anyone who resists, should be shipped out ASAP, because their heart will not be on team results, but on personal results.


Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
