Have to say that while I'd still prefer there to be some sort of blue up at the shoulders the white jerseys are sharper than I thought they'd be.

Cameranesi stepping up a bit. Glad he got an AHL contract at least from that forgettable 2011 draft.

Middleton got a goal on Saturday on a throw in. He is huge and looks like he's still adapting to his body.

Johnsson looks really good out there, especially with skilled linemates (Timashov!).

Lindberg starting to look more assertive and JVR-lite.

Kaskisuo > Bibeau (small sample size). He's calmer in net.

Dermott is actually kind of mean on the ice. I like it.

Not too surprised we went 3-0 for the tournament. We held significant territorial advantage in possession and chances. A few rusty brain lapses here and there meant more goals in than preferred (Bibeau), without the automatic goal scoring we saw last year on the Marlies.

No one looked like they would threaten for an Opening Day spot in the lineup this year other than Marner but there is promise all over this tier of prospect.

At the conclusion of his entry-level contract, following the 201516 season, Percy was not tendered a contract as a restricted free agent, releasing him to free agency. On July 1, 2016, Percy was signed by the Pittsburgh Penguins to a one year, two-way contract worth $575,000 at the NHL level.

If you add Tyler Biggs, that was a bad draft in the 1st round for the Leafs... I can only imagine that Percy was not Qualified as a RFA to clear a roster/contract spot.
But he could do fine as a 7th or 8th D in the NHL.
A.K.A Gardiner51, Changed back to Kaberle15 now that he is retired.

Nobody seems to think that at this point.
