Randy Carlyle has been somewhat of an enigma during his time as the Leafs head coach. Often we find ourselves asking "What is he thinking?" Alas, I am not the one to provide answers to that question, instead I've turned to possibly the greatest philosopher of our time, Jaden Smith. His tweets seem to perfectly capture the inner thoughts of a man who thinks helmets cause concussions, almond butter is one of the great evils in the world, and that toasters are beyond understanding. 

That being said, not all of Jaden Smith's tweets work for Carlyle

but you'll see that at least 9 of them do.

Leafs Roster Preview- Roman Polak

In hindsight I am now looking to the Roman Polak trade with a sense of satisfaction. Sure, the Leafs gave up a far better defenseman in order to acquire a right handed shot. Sure, it doesn’t matter which hand Polak uses because you don’t want to see him handling the puck, and sure it seems somewhat foolish that the Leafs retained a portion of Gunnarsson’s salary and threw in a 4th round pick in order to get the deal completed, but it doesn’t change the fact that there was a silver lining. This deal was likely the beginning of the end of the Nonis regime.

It’s a weird day when Leafs twitter bemoans the fact that Toronto has put an enforcer on waivers. Of course if that enforcer is Troy Bodie, and means a greater likelihood that Colton Orr and/or Frazer McLaren will start the season as Leafs I guess there’s some reason for outrage.

Quantifying Compete Level: The Fanciest of Stats

September 19 2014 11:36AM



There has been a lot of talk lately about how the Leafs have used stats in the past few years, and that they’ve got internal ways of measuring players success. I found this interesting, because any stat they are using would seemingly defy any logical means to assess a player’s success. The other thing that can’t be ignored is the fact that the Leafs management carryovers (Nonis and Carlyle) seemingly have a love affair with the term compete level. Compete level until now has had no definition, but I felt it is time to give it one, and the proper statistic support to back it up.

Introducing BozFeed: Which Leaf Are You?

In my opinion there's been a problem with the content on The Leafs Nation for a while, people have been putting too much thought into their work. Writers have been doing their best to provide analysis, they've been making charts and graphs, they've been translating Swedish hockey sites so you can know more about Viktor Loov. Today I am taking a stance against effort, and bringing you a clickbait alternative with the start of a bi-weekly feature called BozFeed. 

For people who were tired of having to think too hard when Cam was talking about Relative Corsi for players with 45% or lower Offensive Zone starts you’re in luck, now you’ve got BozFeed!

Was Jeff’s analysis of the shootout pushing your brain to hard? Don’t Worry, BozFeed is here!

Was my analysis in..If HFBoards ran the Leafs   Playoff Bingo  uhh...CRAP! I guess I was already doing this, but now it has a name. BOZFEED!
