Sounds like mono is the ticket for me to losing some weight. I tried food poisoning earlier this year and that only worked temporarily.
A strict diet and exercise regimen works pretty well ;)

https://theathletic.com/129280/2017/10/18/pronman-a-look-at-how-three-maple-leafs-defence-prospects-are-progressing/

Pronman dropping some observations on three Leafs defence prospects: Liljegren, Gordeev, and Rasanen.

Liljegren looks like a cross between Gardiner and Nylander (stylistically). Let's see if he can put it all together like they have.

Thanks Herman, I have been sitting on the fence for a long time to sign up to The Athletic but it is a really great site and don't mind paying for the great writing and the ad free environment.  So you got me involved, time to claim commission.

Old model is failing. Good writers and good content deserve to be paid. Esp when you see sports sections get cut everywhere these days.

Scott Wheeler got to speak to Gauthier about his recovery from the gruesome injury that ended his last season, an injury that rendered him unable to sit or stand for a week preceding the surgery that would reattach the hamstring that had been torn loose from his left femur.

He suited up last weekend for two games, well ahead of his projected recovery schedule.

Hey Herman
Read it yesterday and good for Freddie, and although I have tried to learn not to love long shots (Frattin, etc.) I would sincerely hope that Freddie can be 4th line Centre down the road a bit.   He has shown a ton of character and resolve.

Jeff Veillette did a long-form review of our prospects before the season started and they are now publicly available for your perusal.

Things have changed a bit since then.

Korshkov especially! They had a coaching change about 8 games ago, and since then, he scored 8 pts (4G/4A).

Eemeli Räsänen is an intriguing prospect.  Seems like the type of d-man the Leafs could use.  Hopefully he develops.

Think Connor Brown but even more skilled.

Johnsson's an interesting player because he's eligible for waivers next season, but he hasn't even gotten a whiff of a NHL chance yet.

One thing about Johnsson is that it took him about half a year to get going in the AHL last year....he was also coming off a concussion from that dirty Albany team in the postseason the year before.
