Fact: Dion plays much better paired with a big physical defender, just like he played his best hockey with Aulie.
I understand Corsi is the know all stat and trumps winning but lets pretend winning is important for a sec and we can live with a poor Corsi.
One other number for you -- 1.81 -- that's the Leafs goals against in the games Holzer has played.
So if it ain;t broke, lets find someone to blame and break it.
This is the only argument for Holzer as far as I'm concerned. We've been winning and he's the type of presence that Phaneuf needs. I challenge you guys to watch him closely, he looks clumsy all around in my opinion.
