@Jmessih @Hammertownleaffan @Jay31 Even with something like 11 points in that streak instead of 21, we'd be 2nd last with a 4 pt buffer (50 pts)

@Hammertownleaffan @Jay31 Just imagine how bad it'll be next year when we're tanking from the outset.

@Luke_R I really hope they draft 14th and get stuck in no man's land for a while

The two NHL.com mock drafts have us taking either Strome/White or Hanifin/Svechnikov (second one had the Oilers taking Strome).


Svechnikov looks nice. 6'3, 205 lbs winger. 78 pts in 55 games in the Q.

Great piece AP. Also checked out your NHLnumbers article, well done. 


Wasn't clear to me from the piece, would you do Kadri for Zibanejad?

Also, any idea of players you'd like the Leafs to take with the Nashville pick?

@Burtonboy Still finds a way to throw in a potshot at Kadri

"While Nazem Kadri recently served a three-game team imposed suspension for arriving late to a Leafs meeting and was criticized for a general lack of professionalism, Nylander has taken ownership of his burgeoning career. "

It's nice to think about the lottery being rigged in our favour, but it doesn't make any sense. The risk of organizing something like that is much greater than the reward. The losses the league could incur if the rigging was discovered would be much bigger. Why risk a cash cow that's steadily increasing in value just for one part of the cash cow to get bigger? Also, it's not just the NHL that would be risking their reputation on this, it would also be Ernst+Young who oversee the lottery.


It's all about luck. Here's hoping it swings our way for once

@LoovTrain @In it to Winnik Sharks used to be one of the best forechecking teams lines 1-4. Stark difference now where they struggle to maintain offensive pressure.

@Alec Brownscombe @Jay31 @Luke_R Yeah looks like they've got a good center group developing. I take solace in Melnyk being their owner.

Great article! Love both prospects but considering how close they are, I'd lean towards the big centerman in Strome.


PS:Just a small correction, it was Max Domi's draft+2 season

Imagine the Panthers had taken Jones instead of Barkov.

Jones-Ekblad


Not that Barkov can't still become a stud. Still a teenager(19)

@Jay_Berg  If he'd been taken in the 3rd-5th round, he wouldn't be talked about any more than Jamie Devane (also taken in the 3rd)
