I was going to go on a big long rant about how extending Randy Carlyle is awful yesterday, but I was busy playing my own blend of defensively lacking, systematically horrid, and utterly confusing hockey. To my defence, it was drop in with a bunch of people who just started learning how to play on ice, like myself. I still have the opportunity to go on this rant today, but instead, let me show you some numbers. We won't even use "advanced" stats. We'll keep it basic.
