Quote from: L K on May 17, 2022, 12:59:09 PMVery outside shot of Hirvonen cracking the roster. I can't see it with Niemela. Too bad they aren't coming to North America to play. I would really like to see the team being a little more aggressive in trying to get their prospects to North America. Having some decent college/European prospects who haven't played for the Marlies let alone the Leafs keeps pushing developmental timelines back. I like some of our prospect pool but it's guys drafted in the last 2-3 years who are still 2-3 years away from contributing. Clock is ticking on that one.
Quote from: CarltonTheBear on May 17, 2022, 01:33:51 PMI'd have liked to see them in the AHL mostly just because I think the Marlies could definitely use them but I think the whole idea that prospects are worse off playing in Europe is pretty overblown.
Quote from: L K on May 17, 2022, 02:40:58 PMThat's fair. AHL production doesn't necessarily translate to the NHL either but having guys performing in the AHL also means they are just a phone call away from boosting the NHL roster. Guys playing in Europe can't. I'm not expecting either player to really be NHL ready next year either way but they aren't an option for the organization if they are in Europe even if they were having a stellar season.

Quote from: Guilt Trip on May 17, 2022, 03:33:34 PMI listened to the presser and Dubas never said they'd be loaned back. He said they will be offered back to their clubs because it's part of the transfer agreement between the NHL and European Clubs. If the kids want to stay and play with the Marlies, they can. Just like Semyonov this season. Not in the NHL he can go back.
Quote from: https://mapleleafshotstove.com/2022/05/17/kyle-dubas-on-another-first-round-playoff-exit/"Finally, with Hirvonen and Niemela, because of their transfer agreements, both have to be offered back to their respective teams in Karpat and Helsinki. That will be the situation there unless they make the NHL roster."
