@gda @totalrebuild At this point I think Id take Hanifin slightly over Strome. Center so important but it helps us shore up the D for a decade, most important position for championships


Wouldnt be disappointed with a great C either  :)   I think we're in for a treat this draft.

@bear19 @totalrebuild I think his self assessment seems pretty spot on - Joe Thornton.  Doesn't use his size much but has it, great vision and picks his spots well. Needs to work on speed. Doesnt have same nastiness/physicality as Getzlaf but yes the vision again is there

@HHT Id add Provorov, Kylington, Rantanon, Crouse, Blackwood to that list too lol. Not bad at all.

@mtommy LOL wow. Got to love McDavids humility though.


I like that Kylington's answer of NHL comparable too: "no one".

Would be crazy if after all these McD/Marner/Hanifin/Strome predictions Eichel is the guy the Leafs get! Leave it to us to end up in the most unexpected spot.


(Trade Kessel for Jones or Duchene or someone; draft A. Matthews or Chychrun next year)



A. Matthews    J. Eichel    Nylander

         JVR         Kadri       C. Brown


Jones          Rielly

Phaneuf   Kylington (NSH pick)

Gardiner    Percy

@Ian from Etobicoke @Savo43 @DylanJ @BoneChompski Yeah I wouldnt be that degrading about it but JVR is way better piece than Luke Schenn. B. Schenn seems okay on the other hand but still nothing special. JVR best of the three.

@BoneChompski @DylanJ Yup 100% agree


JVR for Schenn was pretty great too, even though JVR is having an off year alongside Kessel/Bozak. No doubt he'll bounce back though.

Ummmm.... put Riellys assist on Carricks goal and his highlight reel goal a few months ago together... and this is the best prospect/player we've had in YEARS

Van Reimsdyk sure fucked up on his good efforts tonight.... that second play where he was alone in front went to backhand and had so much net, shot it right into Luongos gear


Dont know how to feel about Van Reimsdyk anymore

@Luke_R @Hammertownleaffan Leafs would be way better off with OEL than Kadri.... people were arguing that? lol


OEL is a top pairing defenseman, young and super talented with size. Even before his own team benched him Kadri is a 2nd line center at best and lower pedigree... was drafted lower...

@hometeem @DCDC I think Phil would actually start giving a fuck. With McDavid on the team he'd feel a bit threatened and want to show he's as good offensively as the new young guy. He needs some motivation.

Nice article.


I agree Phaneuf should be kept around unless a super great deal is offered -- and have been saying for 3 years now to move Lupul while he has value. Well, looks like his value is gone now. Oh well.

@hometeem @Yaknowwhat Depends who picks -- I think EDM has to take Hanifin if they're 3rd. Then we get Strome.

@Yaknowwhat That doesn't really make sense for us. If they want Hanifin (or Marner like you said, but I doubt that) then we can just sit pat, keep our NSH pick and let them pick. If they threaten to draft the player we want, Strome, then we snag the player they want in Hanifin.


Eye for an eye makes the whole world blind!

@zoidbergman @djamon As if BOS wasn't going to draft Seguin with the #2 pick though. He was a lock for 1st or 2nd overall that year.

@zoidbergman @djamon Sounds fine in theory but man drafting lets you solidify that player.... hoping to trade is risky at best -- Hall is good but don't see them landing a young top pairing Dman with him, and Eberle? no way.

@TheColborneUltimatum @hometeem Would be silly to trade Gardiner right now. Not going to get much for him and is getting closer to that 300 game mark. Seems to be playing a lot better lately 'coincidentally'


Rielly         Hanifin

Phaneuf     Gardiner

Percy         (Kylington? - draft a good Dman with Nashville's 1st)

Instead, he tells the story of the time when he was hit so hard he saw his life flash before his eyes.

“I died,” said Nylander, laughing. “I died basically.”

HAHA. Sounds like a great kid.

@loomx I think they're pretty much a lock for 4th spot pre-lottery. 3rd or 5th as next likely but prob staying put.
