We need a new word to define players that are strong, fast and skilled who play a possession game. Detroit has a bunch from what I saw on the weekend.   Leafs need more players combining these traits.

The Leafs were so bad in 2009.  Luke Schenn was our best asset and we couldn't trade any of our players for more than a 2nd or 3rd round pick.

Yes, mistakes have been made but given where the Leafs were, there was little room for error.

If he could win more than 25% of his draws, that would help.

When the Leafs are playing the game, the shots 5v5 have improved (Colorado game, first 30 minutes last night).  When they give up or when they have a large lead (Rangers, Pitts), not so much.

Has Dion been that bad?  There were a number of missed assignments that led to goals last night.  That last goal he could have used a little help from his teammates.  instead there was an unchecked Detroit forward who tipped it in.

You're suggesting its impossible to evaluate players outside of an NHL game.  In the old days of hockey, you earned your ice time in practice.  Has this become impossible?

My time horizon is short, like Friday night`s game.  Leafs are committed to moving Dion to the left side... for now.  This can (and probably will) change quickly.

Leafs want 3 left hand shooters and 3 right hand shooters.  So the competition is at LD, pick three:


Phaneuf

Percy

Rielly

Gardiner

I don't think so.  He makes dumb plays in his own zone.  I think that will scare away other teams.

Dion liked playing on his off-side.  When RC moved Dion to LD, he looked bad (likely because we didn't have 1st line quality RD).

This season the Leafs brought in two players (Polak and Robidas) they thought might allow Dion to play the left side and have quality help on RD.

At least, this is the narrative being put about.

"very solid" is an exaggeration.  Colborne had a slow start in Calgary and a better second half.


My problem with Colborne is he won't play a tough bottom six role.  And he's not skilled enough to be a top six center.  Maybe a top 9 bottom 3 system would better suit him. 


Holland put up similar numbers to Colborne but in half the games and with 30% less ice time.  Holland was +1 while Colborne was a -17 for what that's worth.

I doubt Ashton will ever be a regular in the NHL.  If you don't believe me goto a Marlies game.  He's bigger and stronger than most AHL players which generates his success.   In the NHL, his size and strength is not exceptional.
