Marlies & Prospect Talk / Re: Niemelä and Hirvonen singed to ELCs
« on: Yesterday at 02:21:01 PM »
Very 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.

I'm with you in that it seems the road to the Leafs roster for non-first round talent is through the Marlies...even Sandin and Liljegren went through there as first rounders.

I wonder maybe if their lack of size might be the issue, so let them play in Finland again for another year of physical growth.

If they can bring back Giordano I'd move on from Brodie and Muzzin.  Both are declining IMO.  It's a gamble but I think Sandin and Liljegren are top 4 guys.

If we're bringing Giordano back then at that point, in a bit of a twist, we'll just have too much money invested into our defence and someone will have to go to put some money into a middle-6 forward and/or goaltending. Muzzin is the more logical choice for me since I think he'll have a tougher decline than Brodie (who I don't really think has shown much of that IMO) and at the same time he'll probably have more value to another team because of his style of play.

Yeah, I move Muzzin before Brodie.


It was a fun year to watch our favourite team. 

I look forward to arguing with you all about the inevitable changes afoot goalies what?

Welcome to Las Vegas, Barry Trotz?

Yeah...but Q and Maurice are out there too.

I’m confident and anxious. This is not a fun feeling.
I can do Game 7s in my sleep now.

You have a stronger constitution than I.
(The secret is having low expectations.)

Overtime I cannot do. Not at all.

I can't even do late 3rd periods anymore.

Now that's the Pat Quinn that I remember.

Want to click so worried tho...
It’s good! What you worried about, YouTube recommending you crypto videos? Or are you stuck in Ponzi-land and don’t want to hear about it?

OK, I clicked...That guy is delusional.

Hopefully, there's a super long anthem tonight. I don't get home until 9:00

I feel your pain...I've got a charity event that my wife is not letting me out of tonight.

I'll be checking my phone every 5 1 minutes.

Go Leafs Go!!!

Handshake night indeed.

No matter what happens this series, I'll give the Dubas administration credit for the value spends in Bunting and Kampf.

I don't think Bunting wins the Calder due to the fact that he's close to retirement age, but he's definitely big value for the dollar.

Eh, Edmonton can spare him for a one-game suspension, Nurse only played (*checks notes*) uh, 26:23 last game.

Oof.  I guess you alternate McDavid and Draisaitl at LD?
