Kids look super pumped to be moving from SoCal to Ontario.

Why's he holding Marner like that?

Because we're literally grasping at straws for content:
Marleau wears 12, and Connor Brown knows it. They haven't gone into negotiations yet, at the time of this interview, but I hope Brown gets a nice watch or something fun out of it.

Newmeros:
  • Marleau taking 12 is a foregone conclusion
  • Brown (if/when he is signed) takes 28
  • Kapanen (if he makes the team out of camp) used to wear 42 in Liiga, but since Bozak is still there (maybe), he'll likely take the vacated 24.
  • If Calle Rosen makes the team out of camp, his usual 39 is available.
  • If Travis Dermott makes the team, he's not getting his junior 44 from Rielly, and he's not getting his Marlies 8 from Carrick, so I'm going to suggest he take 23, which is 2^3 = 8 (or 4+4) because we know he's totally all about that sort of thing.

Dominic Moore has worn 28 in a lot of places.  I think he takes that number.

I truly forgot about him. He wore 19 when he was last a Leaf. If Kapanen is smart, he will auction 28 off to the best offer.

I'm a bit surprised Kadri hasn't gone to 19, but maybe it's because he's now super committed to his social media handles (and being Matthews' complement).

Sometime after his first year he said something about wanting to make #43 HIS number, which seems like a very Kadri-thing to do.

I think Lupul is *technically* still on the roster, and thus, still has the rights to #19. :P

That's a weird hill to stake a claim on, but I'm down with that.

Make that yet another player I've forgotten.

Does anyone know the story behind the different number on the one kid's jersey?

It is, or starts with, 9.  It could be a Gilmour jersey, but he's too young to have seen Dougie play.  I doubt it's a Charlie Conacher jersey.  Glenn Anderson? 

Was it just his jersey number?  That's the likely answer.  I just find it odd that he isn't wearing dad's number like the rest of the family.

Lamoriello said he was happy that Connor Brown would surrender No. 12 to Marleau while taking on No. 28, Brown’s number from his junior days in Erie. Kasperi Kapanen, who had No. 28, will take No. 24 if he makes the Leafs, the same number his father, Sami, wore during his 13 seasons in the NHL. Brian Boyle wore 24 last for the Leafs.

Pow!

Also this load of BS:

“We have a group of talented individuals,” he said. “Our training camp will be very competitive because we have depth. Depth creates competition. The best players will play. The best team players will play. No matter how talented you are, success doesn’t come from individual play, it comes from the group.”

I beg to differ. What we have here is a man of his word.  If Matthews shows up out of shape to camp, I have no doubt that Mr. Lamoriello will simply waive his sun-bronzed ass.  MESSAGE SENT!  "It's not about the name on the back of the sweater; it's about the worldwide trusted brand on the front."
