Everything is bigger in Texas, including their AHL team's spot in the standings entering todays game. Sitting in fourth place, the Texas Stars, affiliate of Dallas, were six spots ahead of the Toronto Marlies and looking to maintain that gap. On the other hand a win for the blue and white would tie them with Oklahoma City for the last playoff spot in the west (yes, it's very early, but still accurate). The result? A little bit of both; Texas picked up a point to help their push, and the Marlies grabbed a big pair with a shootout win.

David Clarkson after ten games

David Clarkson hasn't necessarily been under attack, but we can say that people are beginning to question the things Clarkson can do on the ice. I don't necessarily think he's been all that bad in his first few games as a Leaf. He's leading the team in most puck-possession categories, has had a few scoring chances and unfortunately finds himself goal-less in mid-November, something that could have been impossible to forecast back in July when he signed his long contract.

Clarkson now has 10 games under his belt, and he has just three assists in those games. A 10-game goal-less slump doesn't particularly bother me. Players slump, they don't get the bounces, whatever, but what does have me worried is that Clarkson is just shooting at 2.0 shots per game. He's a high-volume, low-percentage shooter who was 43rd in shots per game among forwards between 2010 and the end of the shortened 2013 campaign. So what's happened?
