I'm going with Kenny Ryan. He really stood out when I watched him at the prospect game.

I'm gonna 'go out on a limb' and predict Jake Gardiner is the standout for the Leafs. :)

Last year, it was streamed on the Leafs site. Too bad, I was looking forward to seeing these games as I did last year. The NHL Network doesn't have them either. They have three Rangers prospects games Saturday,  Sunday and Tuesday. Oh well - at least I can see hockey games.

Hockeys back people!what a summer...

I would expect either Gardiner or Frattin to be the best player on the team, and I'm exited to see how Broll does.  I've kind of got high hopes for him.

According to Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun, D'Amigo will miss the rookie tournament with a back injury. He's expected to be ready for training camp though.

This link has a scouting report on some of the players that dont stand out on the Rookie Tourni roster.. (dont know if there is any truth to this..)

------
For those who may not recognize the above mentioned players, a quick scouting report on them…

Garrett Clarke - Once a highly touted Dman coming into the Q, Clarke’s stock fell because of internal issues with his team. An offensive blueliner, He brings an edge to his game, along with the ability to rush the puck. He’s a tremendous skater, as well. There was talk of attitude problems throughout his career, though if Burke has invited him… he must have looked into it.

Kyle Neuber – A big physical presence, Neuber has been a member of the Columbus organization since he was drafted in 09. He’s a clear cut enforcer who can drop the gloves and rattle some bodies. Otherwise, he’s a kid who needs work in the defensive side of the game, and lacks the true footspeed to be much of an NHL’er. How he’s on this roster? I’m not sure, as he should still be under contract with the Blue Jackets.

Mike Schwindt – Another big boy, Schwindt is a nice defensive presence who can rattle a few bodies. You won’t get any offense from him… absolutely none, but he may be able to crack an NHL roster as a 6th or 7th Defenseman. He was recently traded to the Soo Greyhounds and could be a steadying presence on their backend.

Matt Stanisz – While not overly big, Stanisz is a pretty calming defensive defender who saw his offense blossom in his Overage year, playing with Jesse Blacker’s Owen Sound Attack. He likely won’t have that offensive game in the pros, but it’s worth noting. He’s usually the defenseman who makes smart and calm decisions and plays sound defense.

Denny (Dennis) Urban – A small offensively gifted defender, Urban saw brief time with the ECHL’s Reading Royals, where the Leafs brass would have seen him. He was one of the better defenders in the country, and had gained some support for the Hobey Baker this past year, after beating the record for most points by a defenseman in Robert Morris (his NCAA team) history.

Dave Cowan – Cowan was on the roster last year, and was a teammate of the aforementioned Urban. He’s another big defender, with some steadying skills defensively and a long wingspan.

Kyle Neuber was never offered a contract by the BJ's, which is why he can attend the Leafs camp. That site is a bit shoddy. Anyway, he sucks.

I'm excited to see Devane. He finished strong last season.

A couple of notes on tonight's game:

1) Two forward lines have been confirmed so far: McKegg-Crescenzi-Nicholls and Broll-Heard-Frattin
2) Mark Owuya will start in net for the Leafs, with Garrett Sparks taking over at the half-way mark
