@Anthony Petrielli @Favell66 Agreed, I can remember when Yanic Perreault was our #1 prospect, and I believe they picked him in the 3rd round that year, because they had traded away their top picks. If some of our young prospects can "push thru" this year, maybe it will enable us to trade some older players for more picks, increasing the chances of draft success. I can't remember the last time the Leafs have done that though....

I enjoy reading your articles, very informative. I think if you use a baseball draft analogy, where usually its 4-5 years after being drafted before they hit the big leagues, it requires patience. There are exceptions, no question, but there really isn't any other choice but to go the slow and steady route to developing players. The Kessel trade obviously affected the 2010 /2011 drafts. Again , great read
Another thoughtful article, thank you. I agree with your thoughts regarding Carlyle, I believe there is a disconnect with him and younger players( Frattin, Holland ) . Maybe there isn't anything wrong with our fourth line, maybe he's just too stubborn to play them...

Caught Verhaeghe in Belleville, and he seemed disinterested, could definetely see the skill level though....

@Anthony Petrielli @Favell66 Agreed, you do have to draft safe picks as well, at least its exciting to have prospects. I remember when Yanic Perreault was the lone prospect on the farm, its turning around....

Another excellent article, thanks. I prefer , "swinging for the fences" as opposed to taking a safe player, with a low ceiling. Shanahan's influence??

@Alec Brownscombe and they get the broadcast rights for the Draft as well, what a joke. I guess we'll here Kypreos giving his "valued" opinion on every prospect........3rd rate broadcaster.......

Another excellent article Anthony. I love your insight. When I hear about teams outshooting the Leafs like they are, I can't help but remember a team by the name of The Central Red Army , that used to get outshot regularly when they toured over here, but made their chances count when they got them. Now, I'm not saying the Leafs are in the same ballpark as that team, but it makes me think that being outshot isn't the big deal that the media seems to be making of it....just sayin'
