There's a 6'4 Finn power forward named Rantanen that DET may snag in top 15.  Maybe we grab him.  Nylander-Rantanen.

We should have damn well been accumulating firsts in this draft - really good guys going top 5.  Kylingon, a Swedish D who is described as an elite skater, Paul Bittner a 6'4 power forward with good hands and Dylan Strome C who we would love.  Not sure we could acquire #1 or #2 because those teams will look to royally fleece any trade partners. But some of those other guys I mentioned would look nice.  Yeah maybe we set back our timeline but at least our team will have some substance and a chance to compete regularly. I still think we need more meanness on our top 2 lines. Not shrinking violets. @NinetyThree @Dogger

If we haven't dealt Gardiner, maybe him (+) could land it (hopefully he has an epic 15 goal second half as the Leafs tank down the stretch- I know, likely right?) ... @NinetyThree @HHT

I'm not saying we'll end up there, but I do think the Leafs need a bottom 5 finish this year and next to infuse the blue chip talent needed to have a chance at moving from bubble team to something a step higher (a blue chip forward and a big nasty D).  And I think we have to make some trades to make our forwards more bad-ass.

Sounds like more than one gunman - there's more work to do before hockey or anything else.

We have a lot of one dimensional players and the problem is that most are 6/10 at it.  I think we need to finally build up the middle and need to have some nastiness.  Not gooniness but sufficient amounts of nasty and sandpaper up and down the lineup.  And then you have your skill. NY Islanders 1980s. That's one thing that helps a young team gel as they develop.  I think we need us a Foligno and a Couturier.

We have made some smart moves but I also think the ceiling of this team is bubble team- I don't see enough mental toughness, something needed in Toronto.  We have a number of players who could bring a 1st (or more).  Gotta consider all options in this draft year. Even after Connor and Jack are gone - 6'3 205 D Noah Hannifin or C Dylan Strome would look awesome on a rebuilding Leaf team.  We don't have a second this year and generally need to recoup some high round picks.

I missed the game. But from the write up it sounds like our top players underperformed (minus Bernier) and our new pluggers had a more favourable impact.  #McDavidSweeps

Imagine if we did it and Staal Clarksoned here? Could happen - he'd probably drink up the attention and not give a shit.  Time to groom saviours rather than to overspend our future on big name vets.  @Bring the Cup Home
