He had an opportunity to learn from The Master and didn't take it.


Brendan Shanahan wants you to believe he has a Shanaplan. And while I was a Shanafan of him when he was a player, it really doesn't seem like he knows what he's doing.

Disappointing season proves that analytics don't work. #mycolumn:

There are two games left for the Maple Leafs this season, but I don't need to see them to know what I know. You see, this was a season of new beginnings. Brendan Shanahan was hired, and with him came a vision for a new way of thinking, utilizing analytics heavily. He signed supposed wunderkind Kyle Dubas, known for assembling a powerhouse OHL team with the help of analytics. It's obvious that that was a fluke.

And this isn't just my opinion - I'm going to use the nerds' fancy stats against them to prove that Kyle Dubas is a fraud and analytics don't matter.

It's been a tough season in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Toronto Maple Leafs, a once proud Canadian franchise, have been terrible. Hockey is Canada's game. Always has been, always will be. So it's rough when any team is bad, but when that team is Canadian is stings even more. 

The Leafs are a failure of a team. And I think we can all agree that it's because its core is made up of Americans and undrafted players. And the last Russians we had? One stunk and the other was bought out after playing terribly after signing a big fat contract. Typical. That would never happen with a Canadian player, especially a hometown boy.
