The first round of the playoffs is over, and it was a doozy. The best part is, there are three rounds to go, and the hockey isn’t likely to get any worse as time goes on.
After the jump, it’s time to make Round Two predictions.

Pictured above are two of the Leafs' leading scoring chance takers from the 2010-11 season, Phil Kessel (most taken on the team) and Nikolai Kulemin (3rd most). Kulemin had the best shooting percentage on scoring chances out of all Leaf players with at least 50 chances.

This morning, on Toronto sports radio, the question came up, “Would you trade Luke Schenn for Joe Pavelski?” I almost drove off the road. Then, to sink the dagger even further, both the boneheads behind the mics said, “Yes, I would.” I had to pull over and take some deep breaths. Schenn for Pavelski? Are they nuts?

On January 1st 2011 the James Reimer era began with a bang. Outshot 21-33 the rookie allowed a single goal to let Toronto skate with a 5-1 win against the lottery bound Senators. After that he started 36 more times accruing 3 shutouts and a .921 save percentage.
The Leafs grabbed 45 points in Reimer's 37 starts which stretched to 82 games would have given them 100 points. Unfortunately for Toronto when Reimer wasn't playing they relied on the services of Jonas Gustavsson and J.S. Giguere.
