With the exception of 2017, the Leafs of recent times have pretty consistently had at least one player from the 3rd round or below make the NHL. Not sure how that compares to other teams, but it at least says the pick is far from worthless. This year they've had Abbruzzese, Hollowell, Kral, Holmberg and Woll play. All were taken by the Leafs in the 3rd round or below.

Engvall himself was a Leafs 7th round pick.

Leafs traded a 7th for a 3rd.  I love Engvall and wish him all the best but I gotta trust the process.

This one is much better (i.e. he had way more to say about Sandin's positives)

I mean it literally makes no sense. Either you let him walk or you don't. In this case they literally didn't let him walk. You can't ignore the return just because you think he's worth more. Its just such a ludicrous thought. I went to the store and bought an apple for a dollar, but I basically donated my dollar for free because I didn't get two. Like, are you joking?

MSN.com 'He would stand up for me': Bruce Boudreau says Luke Schenn defended him to Canucks management
QuoteBoudreau didn't hold back in predicting the value Schenn will offer the team in its upcoming matchup with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

"Luke Schenn will protect every player on that team. He knows what to do, he's been around a long time. He knows when to do it, more importantly," Boudreau said. "He's good friends with all of those Tampa guys, but when it comes to being on your own team, he's gonna protect everybody.

"But the one thing about Luke is, he's not going to go out and initiate it. He'll be physical, he'll hit everything that he can, but he's not going to initiate stupid stuff, but he will be there to back up everybody. He knew that's what he was in Vancouver. He was our only real guy that could do that, and he's the guy in Toronto as well."

Schenn's willingness to protect his teammates apparently extended to his coach. According to Boudreau, the veteran defender would check in with Canucks management leading up to the team's very public coaching change last winter.

"He would stand up for me as well as players, every chance he got," Boudreau continued. "He would go upstairs and talk to management and say, 'Hey, listen, what are you doing, Bruce is doing a great job.' So, I mean, this is the kind of character he's got."

Nice words about Luke
