@Mcost61 @Yan28 I think that was a joke or something that Spark made up on his tweeter feed, nothing official ever came out, so until then it's bullshit to me.
1 day, 18 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 Recap: Senators 6 vs. Maple Leafs 2
@Bring the Cup Home @Yan28 Bibeau if my fav out of them 3 (not the farthest ahead) he had a good playoffs but his regular season was average (on a bad team though) and he was not that good at the rookie training camp a few months ago. They compared Gibson to Reimer the way he never catches the puck, but knocks it down instead and tries to cover it plus he gives up a lot of rebounds. Didn't like that part of his game.
From what I seen there is no question Sparks is the better goalie between him and Gibson.
Don't care what anyone says. Gotta love that attitude.
- What happen in the skirmish at the end of that game?
Rupert: We're just loosing and at that point not coming back so we might
as well go out guns blazing and just a couple of fights broke out"

The prospect closest to making the big team is Leivo. Great player with heart. Watched him closely last year, he was out there on the PP and PK too.

@Marlies Man Leiweke = Another write off
Watch the Rupert brothers interviews, Ryan knew the game was out of reach so he said he was gonna go out guns blazing. You can't hate these guys, even though they will probably never see the NHL, love the attitude.

Dreger is garbage. Impossible to get through his segments, there's 99 % filler.
@loomx Hate to agree cause he's a Sens player, but he'll be a great player and will probably make the Sens roster this year.

I love his game but you gotta be ready
2 days, 10 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
Loov will learn that guys will go after you for those hits
Finn has been horrible defensively this game
Giving up pure chances now
Wow Luv is great
2 days, 11 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
Biggs and Gauthier don't have that finish.
He's a great playmaker a true center.
These auditioning dman aren't making a case, the swedes are great though.
Good story on Matt Rupert in the intermission
2 days, 12 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #2 – Maple Leafs vs. Senators
Verheage is got great control of the puck. You can tell Brown is well liked and he plays hella hard. Gauthier should shoot more. Finn was on for a goal again. Loov is a beast, dont cradle though. Just some thoughts.
Gotta love the kids Woooooooooo
@Jmessih Good choice
@Bruce Gamble If Granberg is the 1st call up then I would say yes.
2 days, 19 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #1: Maple Leafs vs. Blackhawks
@Burtonboy Leivo has nothing left to prove here anyways, he is gonna concentrate on making the Leaf's starting line up in the preseason games / training camp.
2 days, 20 hours ago on Rookie Tournament Game #1: Maple Leafs vs. Blackhawks
Leivo, will be on the Leaf's 2nd or 3rd line as early as this season.Broll, 4th line with the Leaf's this or next season. Be a 1st call up if the team starts getting pushed around. He is not an enforcer enforcer though, don't expect him to go toe to toe with guys like Mcgrattan and stand a chance, but he can fight and he can play.
Devane, big fan but unless he has a crazy camp, Broll gets the spot before him in the future. Devane was supposed to be a guy that can score not just fight (picked early 3rd round), but has been more of an enforcer.
@Burtonboy @Yan28 @MaxwellHowe He got worse as the year went on, no question, but he will be better this year I think.
3 days, 19 hours ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
@Burtonboy @Yan28 @MaxwellHowe He had like 3. Devane had 1.
@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe Broll didn't struggle, he did what he was told to do. His production will pick up eventually, but he's as good 4th liner as any. The new school 4th liner.
@Burtonboy @Yan28 He was, but Ryan already has a contract.
@Burtonboy Biggs with the Ruperts, I like that. Guys do you think both Ruperts stick with the Marlies? or does Matt get cut?
@Burtonboy @Yan28 @MaxwellHowe He was really positive in his interview from a day ago. Seems like he has a good relationship with the guys on the Marlies.
@Burtonboy @MaxwellHowe Agreed. Broll and Devane though don't get enough recognition, if it wasn't for them none of these skilled guys would ever make it in the AHL. Everybody gets hit out there, doesn't matter if you're a star or not. Devane makes his career sticking up for these guys and I will always respect him for that. Would love to see him on the 4th line for the Leafs eventually, but the way the game is going he is far from a lock, Broll has a better chance imo.

@Loric76 That's gonna be a hated line for the other teams.
@Alec Brownscombe @Jmessih Straight up. haha
4 days, 18 hours ago on Maple Leafs invite Henrik Tallinder and Brendan Mikkelson to training camp
I bet Lieweke is taking about Kessel. Sounds like it.
@loomx @MaxwellHowe @Yan28 @Jmessih Defoe?
@LeafFan15 @Yan28 @Jmessih Thing is Lieweke's opinion on hockey probably means nothing. He is a businessman with no hockey sense whatsoever.
@LeafFan15 @Yan28 @Jmessih Who else is there with good numbers?
@Loric76 I think Broll will have a good year this season and eventually make the Leafs 4th line down the road.
