<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TMarch</b></div><div>If you need different numbers, how about a 47.8% Corsi on a just shy of 47% ozone start, with a -3 relative Corsi. His best year was last year with a 1 relative Corsi on slightly shelter minutes (53% ozone start). He was on the ice for over HALF of all the goals scored on BUF last year, playing with 3 different sets of partners (since the partners changed, but the results remained the same, the constant is the problem).
If he was really that good, BUF wouldn’t be trying to pawn him off, and if he was really that good, teams would be jumping at him. Since BUF Is trying to move him, and can’t find takers, that should tell BUF fans that he isn’t worth much.</div></div>
53% is not sheltered by any stretch buddy. the reason he is being shopped is he supposedly requested it. but you all obviously dont watch the sabers if you think he is liability. the defensive systems have been **** for years now and he has been encouraged to join the rush and play physical because he is a beast of a person. in the end i am happy if they keep him too but if he goes it better be for a top 6 RW or 2nd line C.
corsia has him at 33rd best RD btw
tho i was shocked to see how high Mantha was ranked as i only looked at his career stats before this. seems he played really well down the stretch for DET. still only a top 6 guy in my mind but if he tops 65 points next couple seasons i will change my mind.
