We're 17 games (or just over 20%) into the Calgary Flames schedule, so it's time for another check-in regarding how the club's players are doing in all areas fancy stats.
We have a mix of stuff we're tallying ourselves (scoring chances and zone entries), and stuff we're putting from data collected by the fine folks at War on Ice and Hockey Analysis.
Except for zone entries, all stats refer to even-strength numbers, and we're limiting things to players who have played 10+ games due to sample size concerns.

We're 15 games into the season and we're starting to get a clearer picture of what kind of team the Leafs are. They sit in the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference and have a record of 8-5-2. They have a Corsi of 47.52%. Guys like Phil Kessel and Leo Komarov have been awesome, while others like Stephane Robidas have not. For this article, I wanted to take a closer look at one small part of this Leafs team: how Randy Carlyle and the coaching staff are utilizing the players.
