@Anthony Petrielli @Joe89I see an issue. Raymond is in line for a nice pay raise. probably 3-3.5 mil range (or he walks which is most likely and probably for the best for caps sake). Clarkson is at 5x6 more after this season. Ashton is waste of a spot. Aside from that. I think Holland is underused but where can he go but down with Bolland hovering around... I like J Mc. and Bodie is underrated

@Bruffins @Joe89@Alec Brownscombe I'm not saying Ashton needs to be a goal scorer. What I'm trying to suggest is that nothing stands out about Ashton. You want your prospects to come in and take jobs and make hard decisions. Ashton is just a plug. He's not pushing anyone for playing time he's not blowing anyone away he's stagnant he's unimpressive. He doesn't have Gardiner speed or faceoff skill or even fighting skill. I don't understand how this guy earns his keep I don't see it.
@Anthony Petrielli @Joe89 Clarksons contract is pushing other guys off the roster. The flak that management would receive(Already plenty) would be unreal if they decided to sit Clarkson.
@Bruffins @Joe89@Alec Brownscombecomparing Kadri and Ashton is a joke right?
@Bruffins @Joe89@Alec Brownscombe 45 games 3 assists -9
@wendelsway1 my guess is Leafs are asking him to take 1 year for same money and he's not having it
@Alec Brownscombe @Joe89 Everyones top 6/top 4 or bust. Same thing said about Holland and Kadri and every prospect the last 10 years. At some point you have to give guys a shot. Ashton isn't earning his spot at all and guys like Abbott will never take a spot from Lupul, Kadri, etc etc unless given a chance. Hell D'amigo, Leivo, McKegg on and on.. guys who deserve a look but wont get it because Ashton and the enforcers are wasting spots... though i just remembered only 4 call ups from here on out... what a waste of a roster spot imo
I feel like Ashton just isn't going to make it. Dominant AHLer. Game doesn't translate to NHL and breaking Frazer Mclaren's finger shouldn't mean anything as far as a roster spot. Being physical isn't enough to keep him around we're already playing Clarkson big to bring that element. Personally I'd rather see Spencer Abbott brought up to take his spot and see if he can run with it. He's small but he's earned it and if we've learned anything over the years those smaller guys can be diamond in the rough
@dlb eh @Joe89 @TheCanucksnaphook Might I add I had the last pick of the round which was 12th

@TheCanucksnaphook @Joe89 So if you were to view my team...How good is it realistically?
What do you think of my yahoo fantasy team? First of many this year
@Jmessih Schenn pulled a sweet dangle off in the first and still couldn't get past Rielly. Very impressed. I thought Raymond played well but aside from the breakaway didn't stand out. Kadri is Kadri :D
@rustynail @Joe89 Yahoo Fantasy.
@TheCanucksnaphook @Joe89 Thanks guys. Took Ranger. I had three in my queve. Mcdonaugh which is obvious as I need a starting D and one bench spot so I took Ranger. Cheers. Both looked great tonight!
Quickly Reilly or Ranger for fantasy?
@dnksdad I'm in love with that gal in your pic... holy hell shes hot

Wouldn't mind seeing Reilly - Fraser third pairing in the preseason.
@Optimustic @Joe89 agreed. It's one thing to be gritty and nasty and it's another to injure a future teammate
I like Ashton's fire but is it really wise to be taking hacks at roster players? Drop the gloves sure but slashing? He'll get destroyed quick in an NHL game for that
ps. great job. loved that you zeroed in on specific players more
