* It won't be a real 4th line, but it's hard to slot Brooks over any of Matthews, Kadri, Tavares.

Is that because Brooks isn't any good?

He's quite good. He's not quite great.

He does have 14 more points in the AHL this year than I do so, point conceded.

He's shaking off the mono and finding a fit higher up in the lineup with Rychel, Soshnikov, Kapanen, and Johnsson leaving or Leafing. 7 of his 14 pts have come from Pi day on (which is the day Johnsson got called up).

I mean he was only a 4th round pick, I'm not willing to throw the towel in on him just yet.  There's only 3 players from that draft year from rounds 4-7 that actually have played in the NHL so far.   3 out of 120 players taken, pretty small odds for hitting successfully.

That's because most guys in that draft year are two years younger than he is.

That's fine, it's still a low probability of success.  If you go back another 2 years to players the same age as him that were taken in rounds 4-7, there's only 13 out of 120 that have played in the NHL.

I agree. The chances of Brooks having much of a NHL career are pretty remote. That was my point.

Yup, which would make any success he does have in the NHL a huge bonus for the Leafs.  That's why I'm still hoping the kid breaks through.

The Flames are 100% trading Hamilton in the offseason and we need to get on that.

There is also chatter coming out of Vancouver that they are pretty interested in making a pitch for Tyler Bozak come July.

We should trade them his UFA rights for the low low price of a 2nd round pick.

To ensure they have his faceoff skills and playoff experience for 8 years, yeah.

Guy has 17 goals, 44 points, $5.75 cap hit for the next 3 season, so is going to be worth a boatload of a trade return. 

Would anyone consider moving Liljegren + + for him?  He's only 24.  Under the circumstances, with the forward core really showing to be ready for prime time, I think I'd do it...assuming the plus is reasonable.

Another thing, I wonder if either Sparks or Pickard are worth anything at this point?

I don't think that the Flames want a d-man back.  The chatter is that they will move pieces from their defence in order to get scoring depth.  In this case they are going to probably want someone who can contribute up front.  I'm not sure though that the pieces the Leafs have there are going to get it done.  Marner, Nylander, Kadri are too much to offer, and Brown, Kapanen, Johnsson are too little.  Plus I think they want help down the middle. 

Also, just to add to that, I am not sure Hamilton is the right kind of D-man to add.  The Leafs need a younger version of Hainsey.  Someone who is calm in his own end.  The Leafs already have guys who can put up points.  They need more d-men who can stifle an attack.

 I think they are more likely to move Brodie and hold onto Hamilton.
