@Leafs2 Isles1 @mtommy @DylanJ I think we're gonna be pretty darn bad. Especially if we ship out Phaneuf, Kessel, Bozak....

@HeatherRickAkin I would prefer Marner alot more just seems like all of our good players/prospects are on the smaller side as of right now

One thing that excites me about any of Marner, Hanifin, Strome is that they all seem like students of the game. Focused on improving like crazy, along with their natural skill sets.  Ekblad/Crosby type of mindsets

@LessThan12Parsecs I think we could do a bit better in the Phil deal and no way Jersey bites on that JVR deal

I could see being Marner turning out something like Kane/Dougie, Hanifin like Keith/Pietrangelo, and Strome comparable to Johansen/Thornton


I think we'll be okay

@HHT @Xxxxxnew Matthews is a C pretty sure with ability to play W as well

@Claymish What do you like about him? Notice he was drafted by the London Knights.

@Xxxxxnew They'll probably both end up very successful

@Mattmark Ah so if these were the rules of NEXT years draft we'd have been able to draft Eichel

@Burtonboy @WereRiellyDoingThis @Xxxxxnew Yeah but who cares if George Armstrong is a scout on the payroll. Pay the guy, its not like his opinions are affecting who we draft

@lilgrnmen17 Can't agree more man, especially breaking free of the 'old boys club' approach.  He's rocking this thing Henry Ford style

@zoidbergman @Jmessih I dont see the Yotes taking Hanifin for some reason. They're pretty barren up front. Marner or Strome

@Jay_Berg Yeah I think the allure is more just whats been mentioned below. Sometimes generational talents just want to play for their original team or hometowns. And as the Leafs it'd be nice to get that luxury one day, since we churn out stars every year

Back to 2016 draft lots of other great picks...

Max Jones  C Combining speed and power along with a very good skill level, he becomes a very challenging player to play against. He uses all of the elements to his advantage and has a determination in his game that forces opponents out of their comfort zone.

@LN-093 In that case, we should take Hanifin lol

@LN-093 @DylanJ @mtommy Plus he's good enough to not care about how he'd do in the Toronto market blah blah blah -- he'd just rock it end of story. So why not

@LN-093 @mtommy Maybe this is all the grand universal plan to place McDavid in Toronto some how, some way, he will leave Edmonton. And who will be his natural go-to? The Toronto Maple Leafs of course

@zoidbergman @Jay31 Yeah, I'm just as excited about next years potential picks as this great draft. If we came away with one of A. Matthews (C), Puljujarvi (W) or Chychrun (D) we're looking pretty damn good. Especially if we can get a star C this year and D next year, or vice-versa

@zoidbergman @DylanJ @Jay31 Yeah, I think Johansen is a fair comparison maybe even better comparing their numbers. A true star.

@Jay31 It'd be cool if we got Strome..... Eichel vs Strome in the battle of the 401 for years to come


If we get Hanifin and Strome.... Rielly+Hanifin+Phaneuf(or whatever we get for him) is a great foundation on the backend

@Mitch_S2 @DylanJ @ShotgunCharlie Yup, Marner looks awesome too no doubt. Very happy with the 4th pick and I trust Dubas/Hunter to pick someone great there

@mtommy Might have to say no to that lol

@ShotgunCharlie @DylanJ Personally I want Strome, Hanifin, Marner in that order

@ShotgunCharlie  "There's not a huge gap between McDavid or Eichel and Hanifin but there is, to start the season anyway, a gap between those top three and everyone else," said one head scout of an NHL team. "(Hanifin) is at a disadvantage simply because he's a defenceman and the other two guys are centres. But (Hanifin) could be Scott Niedermayer. He skates like him."

Hanifin is a shade under 6-foot-3 and weighs 205 pounds. The scouting report says he has world-class wheels, elite offensive skills, can run a power play and use his size effectively to play physically when it's required.

@mtommy @DylanJ Eichel has a slightly higher value than Strome but for me to pull the trigger if we gave up Kessel they'd have to include another really good player/prospect/pick

@mtommy Tim Murray already announced he wanted another blue chip center on top of Reinhart for sure because "success is built down the middle".  No way he trades Eichel

@HHT They're lucky to have Eichel though I'd still be happy too. Good way to welcome a player
 -- Toronto media probably would have went "Leafs miss out on McDavid: Doomed with Eichel"

@theselfishsloth @Jmessih That trade alone should have cost Nonis his job. The salary cap guy too.
