Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,
To deny the significance of possession stats in hockey is to be on the wrong side of history. Before Tuesday morning, the Toronto Maple Leafs were on the wrong side of history.
Suddenly, after a significant front-office shakeup, the organization is at the forefront of a movement that has already began to shift the industry … and will soon reshape it entirely.
The surprising decision to hire 28-year-old Kyle Dubas as assistant general manager does not guarantee that the Leafs will be transformed into a Stanley Cup contender. However, it is a tacit acknowledgement that new methods must be used to evaluate talent and build teams.
The times, they are a-changin’.
