Quote from: Highlander on June 29, 2024, 11:50:01 AMI'd like to know how many players in the NHL were never drafted. I am talking about now, not historically

137 total undrafted players played a game this past season. 67 played over half the season.
Thanks CTB

Quote from: Rob on June 29, 2024, 11:41:23 AMIt's starting to dawn on me that the Leafs might be a hot mess. 
Danforth is a good pick, maybe very good, his coach says he plays like Tanev but with more upside offensively

Quote from: WhatIfGodWasALeaf on June 27, 2024, 01:20:34 PMWho do we all want in the 1st round of the draft then?

Kleber, 6'6" RHD who can skate and carry the biscuit.

Yes please.

And his name is close enough to Keebler cookies that many great cookie analogies could be made when he plays
He will probably serve up biscuits.

Quote from: Zee on June 27, 2024, 07:11:19 PMEvidently the NHL awards show was on tonight. Huh.
Nothing and I mean nothing could have beat the Biden/Trump debate.  Amazing how much Biden has disintegrated.
When they got into a pissing match about their golf handicaps I truly am worried about the fate of the US.

I think Sergei was a guy we all loved.  No one has released cause of death. Tragedy for sure. RIP

Just announced, the city is taken the 110 acre parcel off the auction block, so Merulo is out.  If hockey returns to AZ it won't be with him (thank God).  And the parcel offered at the 101 Loop and Scottsdale Rd is the place any arena should be.

Quote from: L K on June 26, 2024, 12:29:36 PMCanada lost 2-0 to Argentina but won 1-0 against Peru in Copa America.  They face Chile on Saturday.  A win or a draw and they advance to the quarter finals.


And a blatant head butt by Peru that was not red Carded, travesty. they got on later for trying to break Shaftleburgs leg.

Now Vlad is saying he would accept a trade to the Yankee's and play for them.

Quote from: L K on June 24, 2024, 07:41:19 PMBottom line on that...it's a known issue but not a solved issue given his two injuries this year.  And my concern with banking on LTIR is far more about what happens when he gets hurt with 2 seconds left in a Game 6.   That doesn't help the team when a critical player can become u reliable because his body is too loose. 

LTIR only helps us if he's missing before the trade deadline and into the postseason or has a season ending injury


I think Brad said the Leafs were going to work with Woll this summer to address conditioning to avoid injuries

Wasn't there some talk of a Russian winger being signed as a free agent? Played on the same team as one of our other Russia KHL prospects.
