<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Shibbal18</b></div><div>Deslauriers has been a great 4th liner, John Scott played on a team where Steve Ott was one of their top scoring forwards. Nolan was not a tough guy, youre right, and Bogosian was an absolute band aid. Reaves doesnt even have bad analytics he has better analytics than Okposo and Sheahan, so you dont even have a point to prove. Nothing I said is based in feeling, its provable across the board, only keyboard warriors are invested that much into analytics that they ignore every aspect of the game. All you have are a select group of numbers that still show he would be an improvement anyway

Take out statistical outliers, that happens often. Im sorry I guess I missed the seasons where Gaudreau and Point were stapled to the bench on the 4th line because CGY wanted more scoring forwards for the "New NHL"</div></div>


Reaves is bad analytically. He is in the bottom percentile of pretty much everything. His team plays exceptionally better when he's off the ice. There's really no reason to give a guy like him ice time. He's a below replacement level player at this point. That doesn't help our team at all. But he's tough I guess.

"Nothing I said is based in feeling, its provable across the board, only keyboard warriors are invested that much into analytics that they ignore every aspect of the game. All you have are a select group of numbers that still show he would be an improvement anyway"

The only keyboard warrior is you. You seem to get really upset when someone brings up metrics that have more specificity and predictability than your basic stats. Nothing shows that Ryan Reaves has a positive impact on the ice for a team. It's just you feel that his "toughness" is a boost, when nothing shows that.

The facts are that we are a below average team goaltender wise. The facts are Hutton has been a bottom of the league goalie for the past 2 years. You don't get to take bad games out because they don't fit your narrative. All you seemingly do is cherry pick really small sample sizes.

I guess I missed that the 5'9 Gaudreau and 5'9 Point aren't tough enough to play in "your NHL". Guys like them won't last like apparently Arttu wouldn't be able to make it in the bottom 6. Need more big oafs with little skill

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Shibbal18</b></div><div>Reaves and Simmonds are not comparable players. Simmonds wasnt brought in to be a physical presence he was brought in for his attitude. Not only that he had like 5 games and was exceling in Toronto this year. I dont remember Reaves taking any bad penalties, I remember Eakin getting called for one and I remember Reaves scoring in the conference finals. I cant remember the last Sabres to score in the conference finals. Good teams play tough, analytic darling teams get trampled. This has been proven time and time again. TB got bounced in the first round, They go out and get Maroon, Coleman, and Goodrow then win the cup. Toronto constantly bounced in the first round. Sabres havent had tough players since Foligno and even thats a stretch, but theyve also accomplished nothing without them. Hockey evolved and so did tough players, they are still relied upon as much as they were before</div></div>

People literally said the same thing about Simmonds that you're saying about Reaves. Simmonds at the very least had some ability on the PP though.

Tough teams are analytically good teams. Maroon, Goodrow, and Coleman aren't useless grinders lmao. Those 3 were good analytically. You're kinda proving my point.

What's even considered a tough player to you? Was Bogosian not a tough guy? Was Jordan Nolan not a tough guy? What about John Scott? Or Deslauriers? Our team must've been so good with all these tough guys over the years.

This really just comes off as upset boomer yelling at the clouds. You seem to just go off how you feel compared to reality.
