It’s the beginning of the end.
The Toronto Maple Leafs, who were undoubtedly the most truculent team in the league last year, have gone full Corsi.
As if the hiring of Kyle Dubas weren’t enough already, Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy has reported that the Leafs have started their own analytics department. The two people selected to man that awful team are Darryl Metcalf of ExtraSkater.com and Cam Charron.
On days like these, it’s important to step back and listen to what the experts have to say. How are we, lowly hockey fans supposed to know whether this was a good move for the Leafs?
Well, of course, the absolute master of hot takes Steve Simmons was ready to dish out the piping hot take that we all needed:
So. Fucking. Spicy.
See, it doesn’t matter whether or not Charron will bring anything positive to the table. We don’t even know if he’s good at his job (because Steve doesn’t want to discuss nonsense like that).
What we do know, however, is that he probably pissed off Steve at one point, and that’s enough for me to agree that this is a terrible hiring. Fuck that guy.
And for those of you who think Steve is just having a little sour grapes, shut up. He’s going through a rough time right now, having to watch his beloved Maple Leafs go full Corsi. It’s a shame.
Where are the critics of Nonis’ offseason moves now?
