@Gilbey93  Boston has had four less picks than the Leafs since 2004 (68 TOR, 64 BOS). They have both used eight firsts (four top tens for Boston and three for Toronto) but Boston has had eleven second round picks to Toronto's six. Toronto comes away with Kulemin, while Boston can boast of Lucic and Krecj

@Gilbey93 @Jimmie Dorey  Was going to get to your TO "notables". Hayes the three recent firsts and D'amigo would have been my selections.

@Gilbey93  Hunwick, Colborne, Caron Spooner and Subban are "notable"?

Not really. It's like the Norris being awarded to the best offenseman (Karlsson, Subban and Randy Carlyle). Good point producers but not the best at defense.

@deedrag  Brennan won't re-sign and he isn't what the team needs. The Sabres gave up on him and the Panthers released him. Two teams not exactly known for their abundance of good defensemen.

@wendelsfist @Fish Head @MaxwellHowe  That would be the case for almost any team. It's a lot easier drafting in the top ten as opposed to mid round teens or low twenties.

@Uncle Otis @Jimmie Dorey @wendelsfist @dlb meh  Broll, Biggs and Carrick would something to watch a few years down the road.

@wendelsfist @dlb meh  Biggs is twenty years old and will take a while to develop. Won't be a top six guy but could be an extremely physical, wear down the opposition third line guy (a Leaf fan's wet dream). I often get the feeling Toronto fans have no concept of player development whatsoever.

@ingy56 @mr_hanie  Shawn was drafted in 1997, You're thinking of Scott third overall in 1989.

@peterbleafs @mr_hanie  Sounds like you're thinking of Rob Pearson not Scott. Both were first rounders and both scored well in the OHL (but Scott never played for Belleville, Rob did)

@mike_84  Leafs have no chance at the top three picks. Can only get the fourth pick if Vancouver, Ottawa and Nashville pass them as you can only move up a maximum of four spots in the draft.
