All good points. But if the cap is going up - they might have the cap space to keep all of them. Just won't keep my hopes up and think one of these guys will fall into TO's lap.

I am sure Pat Roy will have something to say before O'Reilly is cut loose. Roy will want to keep this group together.

Waste of time. What perspective is he gonna offer throughout the broadcast? Geez, if we played as good as Columbus down the final stretch it would be us playing the Pens and Columbus would be drafting 8th overall?

Well, ideally you want the coaches who are coaching the top-rated teams...but they of course are not available.
That's why the Leafs need to wait and see who becomes available. I think that is why Randy has not been sacked yet or else they would have made the change right away and announced his replacement immediately.

With great young talent up front. MacKinnon really took over the game in Duchene's place. O'Reilly, Landeskog. Geez that's good.
Bob MacKenzie showed last night how their first four picks in the 2009 Draft were playing last night. Can we say the same about TO?

Man I look at what Pat Roy has done with a Col team that was terrible last yr and turn them into divisional winners this year. That strategic move of pulling a goalie with under 3 mins to go only down by a goal from last night's game is the type of forward thinking coach we need. I just don't know who is out there that can be one here.
Maybe Shanny should wait till after the first round and see what coaches might get fired? Perhaps even after the second round of the playoffs?

Would most people pass over Ehlers for Virtanen? I just see this kid having that elite type talent we have been missing in our prospect for like ever....

Yeah like when he told B Murray wanted Kadri and Burkie flat out told him "We're takin' him"...lol
@Black_Hawk @daniel marois
Burkie just might take Ritchie before Virtanen
Virtanen is gonna be a polarizing player come the draft. Does he build on that 45-goal season?
Does anyone think if Reimer plays lights out at the WHC - he might raise his trade value by the time the draft comes around?

McCann I believe is someone the Leafs would be interested in. But if you are taking a player inside the top 10, you have to take the player rated ahead of him. Not just make a pick out of need.
Hopefully the later. Remember, we traded up for a player like that in Tyler Biggs a few yrs back
But no good centres that would justify taking at 8. I would just stick at 8 and take BPA
I don't like Ritchie. Would rather swing for the fences with Ehlers...Maybe Shanahan will convince Morrison to do so
Button taking Ritchie for the Leafs
Guys....I am still amazed we dropped to #8...we were hovering around 11-12 just early last week. We should get a great piece at that slot
Good for Forida
Daly just gives it away before he announces it
Looks like Buffalo should take it
Not dropping to 9 is something
At least we did not drop to 9. That's somethin
we will have 8
I don't like our chances
Yes to the girl....
HERE WE GO!
Leon won't be available at 8
But I don't feel comfortable taking Ritchie
Still on the fence who is best for us....
Actually, Toronto does indeed have the eight pick right now. TSN is airing the lottery draft this Tuesday and has been following the lottery standings all season.
Here is the up-to-date standings with Toronto sitting in the 8th slot:

Please no. If Lieweke was right about better drafting...then u don't take Ritchie

And Millard is not Nonis's cousin....See Dreger
Let's hope Shanny and Nonis see it that way
Millard already taking Nonis to task. pointing finger at Dion.
I don't personally like him. But did a great series of questions.
Who cares. He is asking the tough questions and no soft balls.
Watching Tim L on TSN....he said they will not blow it up and be as bad as they can to draft they highest as possible. But he said they need to get more out of these players. That spells = Carlyle gone.
He's still listed as the Director of MEdia Relations
Perhaps. He usually addresses the media before a press confernce starts
Mirtle must be melting and gushing right now.
Ha! Shanny just called out Dave Poulin. Everytime Poulin/Louiselle is asked about analytics on the radio, they shoot it down.
Looks like Shanny is gonna shoot them...
Good response from Shanny
He better back up that better draft statement at the Entry Draft in June
