Areas Of Improvement Needed For The Leafs

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,

- Even if you aren’t a big believer that shots on goal are a relevant indicator of how a team is or isn’t playing, just chew on these numbers: The Leafs gave up a combined 133 shots in three games out west, an average of about 44. As well, they are being outshot by an average margin of 10.7 per game. If their goalies continue to face this much rubber, they’ll soon be ready for the rubber room.

- Yes, we know Leaf fans wanted to jump through their TV screen and wring Alex Burrows’ neck Saturday for his slashing gesture at Phil Kessel, mocking Phil The Thrill’s pre-season incident with John Scott. But Kessel can not allow himself to be goaded into dropping the gloves like he did. He is getting paid $8 million US per season to be on the ice, not the sin bin.
