If recent history is any indicator, McKegg will be trade bait this year or next.

Yeah not sure what trade he is referring too, the Didomenico package perhaps?

I'm pretty certain he's talking about the Nolan trade in which we lost Brad Boyes. Seems like it was just yesterday.

22 points in just 11 games for Kegger since being traded to London.

Sounds like we have a good one there.

The year after Kadri was drafted, in 56 games he had 35 goals, 58 assists for 93 points.

I just want you to take a deep breath that its quite possible McKegg does nothing at the NHL level and/or that it takes a while before we even see him.

Anything is possable, but this kid has the hands and after  the trade we are now seeing what he can do. maybe its also possable we have a hidden gem here, sometimes you have to open your eyes that the leafs can get lucky with a pick.

While there's certainly a strong chance McKegg doesn't turn into anything spectacular, it's probably worth pointing out he did go 2nd overall in the 2008 OHL draft. He wouldn't have gone that high without the talent being there. The kid has talent, there's no denying that. Whether or not he can turn it into anything at the NHL level obviously remains to be seen.

Kadri is an example of why McKegg might not make it?

SSpeaking of Dido - anyone know what became of him ? I really wanted to see him in Blue & White as he wasa great player for the Seadogs.

Gregg McKegg needs to make it for the rhyming potential alone.  Imagine Mark in da Park spitting the illest verses on 2 inch.

He's struggling to produce for Chicago's AHL affiliate.

Been up and down between the AHL and ECHL the last two seasons as well.  Doesn't look good for Dido.

Right and this is Mckegg's 2nd Junior year after his draft year.  Kadri was playing for the Marlies/Leafs in his 2nd year after his draft year.  Having said that McKegg had a great year last year with Erie certainly comparable to Kadris post draft year.  McKegg seems to be more of a pure goal scorer and Kadri more of a playmaker.
