I really can't see Baily or Hyman even being 4th line fodder in the future. Bozak worked out pretty well and perhaps Vesey is better than both of them. He is rated higher than his Bro who we drafted last year, or was it two years ago, can't remember

I've got an old Condemned 84 song stuck in my head, Jimmy Davey, and I blame this thread. Nothing quite like Oi! music stuck in yer grey matter.

Bailey and Hyman have combined for 4 goals in 30 AHL games. I'm pretty sure they're not examples of how the Leafs are unreasonably keeping pro-ready players in the minors.

And Nylander? I think you avoided his name?

Unless the discussion took a turn, Nylander isn't a player signed out of college.

No, I said what I had to say about Nylander. Chiefly, whatever you think about Nylander and how the Leafs are handling Nylander it does not constitute a pattern that they will necessarily apply to every single prospect the team might have. Only someone who doesn't understand the most basic concept of numbers would argue that one occurrence constitutes an identifiable pattern.

There's a separate discussion to be had about how the Leafs are handling Nylander and whether it's ultimately the best for him and for the club but I'm not interested in having it with you. I'm just pointing out that "This is how the Leafs are handling Nylander, therefore it's the same decision they'll make for every prospect until the end of time" is, in the most literal definition of the word, ridiculous.
