Can't even crack an AHL team. Pretty sure Stuart Percy doesn't have a team right now either.

I think it's safe to say that first round pick didn't work out.

I thought with his high levels of "pugnacity, testosterone, truculence and belligerence" that he was a lock for a long successful career.

The trade up to pick him is the failure that keeps on failing.

Chicago has announced that they've signed Franson to a one year deal.

Speaking of ex-Leafs, I can't believe that Tim Gleason is still on the payroll.

Leipsic almost scored on the powerplay:

Edit: This game is madness.

Edit: it’s like they already hate each other (thanks to James Neal)
Vegas has their first ever lead now, also thanks to Neal.

Edit: and now they’ve claimed victory (Fleury power)

This is Leipsic's super fun assist on Lindberg's goal.

There's a chance, a chance, that Leipsic might be a pretty good player.

It seems like there is no way Leipseic would be playing for the Leafs right now, but I wonder if Vegas would have even taken Martin?  Maybe they take Rychel instead which would be absolutely no loss and then we would still have Kapanen/Leipseic as first callups if we ever get an injury or decide to trade JVR for a defense upgrade.

Laich doesn't really like to talk about his time with the Leafs.

But he will talk about Marlies skills coach Mike Ellis, whom he credits for preparing him for this opportunity with the Kings.

LOL... Garbage time goal against (up 4-0) to break the shutout... I doubt he's worried about his life choices, just mad he lost the shutout

I dunno, getting scored on by an AHLer must really bug NHL goalies.
