So just to make sure I understand your matrix:
When Hellebuyck's in net and we win it was because of Hellebuyck.
When Hellebuyck's in net and we lose it was because of coaching/team in front of Hellebuyck.
When Pavelec's in net and we lose it was because of Pavelec.
When Pavelec's in net and we win it was because of team in front of Pavelec.
When we get a speeding ticket it was because of Pavelec.
When traffic is light on the drive home from work it was because of Hellebuyck.
If a cold is going around the house it is because of Pavelec.
If we find some loonies under the couch cushions it is because of Hellebuyck.
Game Time : Tuesday 7PM
Game Story : The Stretch - otherwise known as every game from the All-Star break to the last of the season starts now and the Jet's need to win 70% of their remaining game to make the playoffs. Okay, I'm pulling that 70% out of a bag but people like solid stats.
Local Celebrity Quote of the Game : William S. Burroughs - Junk is the ideal product... the ultimate merchandise. No sales talk necessary. The client will crawl through a sewer and beg to buy.
Helle to start.
I have said they are a tool to use when analyzing players but are not the be all and end all of analyzing.
Some people think these fancy stats are everything.
How did GMs ever do there jobs before the statisticians?
Spacek probably projects more to be a RW in the pros. He's pretty small actually. More winger I think. Not sure why ppl list Connor as a center when he basically has played wing his entire hockey career outside of 4 or 5 games with system less Michigan
Winnipeg Jets defensive depth...
Buff, Bogo, Enstrom, Oduya, Stuart, Hainsey, Postma, Clitsome, Kulda, Flood
Buff, Trouba, Myers, Morrissey, Enstrom, Stuart, Postma, Chiarot, Melchiori, Strait
I guess there's some progress... I guess.
Nothing in the pipe for another 2-3 years though
Everybody crapping on Enstrom, watch the game tomorrow with Brian Frigging Strait and/or Mark stuart and/or Julian Melchiori on the left side and 1 in the top 4...
You will learn to appreciate Tiny Toby a bit more.
Well, using the old eye test, I think it's pretty obvious that the Assistants just do what the coach tells them to do.
I mean, you look at our PP and PK this year as an example, looks eerily similar to last year and the year before in terms of the system we use, Well, Vincent isn't around to scape goat anymore so it's pretty obvious to me that Kompon might be in charge but... he's running Maurices systems.
Huddy definitely runs the D tho, I've been to games and sat close enough to the bench at times to definitely see Huddy working with the D through out the game, basically sending Buff out every minute or so, It's pretty obvious he's in charge of how many minutes a guy plays every game, I'm not sure what else he would do as again, i think it's fairly obvious that he's also running Maurices systems.
Your google quit working or what?
Pearn then Vincent then Kompon focused strictly on the power play as assistant coaches
Then it was Pearn and Huddy focusing on the Penalty Kill so its probably just Huddy now.
Head coach usually installs the overall system, sets the tone, motivates the players and makes roster/line decisions.
Looks like all assistant coaches are locked in for another season after this one...
A bit off topic but a PoMo story none-the-less...
I was living in Southern Ontario during PoMo's days with the Leafs. On this particular day, I found myself driving around the GTA, and low and behold, PoMo gets fired from the Leafs. Of course, The FAN590 is full of coverage of the firing and the ongoing speculation about the new coach, etc.
The radio host on The Fan manages to get PoMo on the phone to do an interview. It's very, very soon after the announcement. Of course, PoMo is very gracious and thankful for the opportunity to coach the Leafs and disappointed how everything turned out. Everything you would expect him to say, since he's a class act.
Anyhow, he's in his car, so it's a quick interview. He's racing to kids school because he knows that the news is going to get to them fast and he wants to tell them first. He doesn't want his children to hear about it on the schoolyard or in passing.
I think that's telling just what a great character he is. And, to me, that tells me a lot about what type of dad he is too.
I know his character has never been in question but no matter which way this goes, he's a great person.
