@Burtonboy Gauthier is great on the face-offs, Dylan Strome is apparently a beast.  Imagine these guys as part of your group of centres in 3 yrs

Certainly conceivable that the Leafs lose tonite (tho facing the 4th string goalie won't help the tank) and the Oilers beat the Avs Monday - that gets the Oilers 1 point away.   But the Oilers schedule gets awfully hard from then on.  They play Anaheim and LA in consecutive nights, then the Flames 2 nights later.  By contrast, the Leafs play the Sabres this Wednesday.  

Gonna take some serious tanking for the Leafs to get to 3rd, but the advantage in terms of the draft is huge.  Better chance at McDavid, 3rd place gets them Strome or, less likely, Eichel and the furthest they could fall is 4th, meaning (IMO) the "worse" case scenario is Noah Hanifan

@mtommy Perhaps he misread the question.....and thought he was asked which player he wanted to replace

@Mattmark My thoughts exactly..clearly the Leafs deserve the honor of last place....good news tho, the Leafs play the Sabres next week.  So we'll just see who really is the crappiest team in the NHL

Not a big deal, but the scuffle does suggest Kessel might not have the respect amongst his teammates that he once had. Hard to imagine a relative newcomer like Booth would dare get into a shoving mathc with kessel in Novermber.  Booth's comment afterwards, that it was good to see some competitive fire in Kessel, is a bit of a backhand

@Jay_Berg give them credit tho...Steen and Rask were later picks in the 1st round...look at the players taken around Steen - 2002 and Rask - 2005......they were inspired picks

@ndkkdn @FRyan @Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe @Jmessih trading the picks and the prospects was the main problem...agreed

@Jmessih You could make a solid argument that the Leafs are where they are because of the drafts between 2002 and 2007.  Picks traded or poor selections or good picks traded for peanuts

Marner versus Hanifan?  Top winger versus top defenceman?

Look at the famous 2003 NHL entry draft.

4 wingers were taken before any defenceman - Nathan Horton, Nikolai Zherdev, Thomas Vanek, Milan Michaelak

Then...in order....Ryan Suter, Braydon Coburn and Dion Phaneuf were selected.

Just chose 2003 out of the blue...fortunately it serve to make my point.  Generally...take the top Dmen before the top wingers

@traNsplantEdneWfie You have to take the projected top pairing defenceman  over the projected top line winger....take Hanifan over Marner

@traNsplantEdneWfie The Leafs will get McDavid, Strome, Hanifan, Provorov or Marner.  Simple as that.
