Unsigned Draft Picks
« on: May 18, 2019, 01:40:50 PM »
Watching Leafs unsigned 2017 draft choice Fedor Gordeev at the Memorial Cup this weekend, I was wondering if the Leafs have any plans on signing him or other draft picks Ryan McGregor (2017) or Dakota Joshua (2014) before their rights expire?

Who knows what the plan is? Gordeev is the only recognizable name and he's a big boy... 6'6" 225lbs. Joshua's numbers have gone down(close) for the last 3 years in a row and McGregor was captain of Sarnia. No impressive numbers for him as a centre but great character I'd imagine.

Gordeev might get an ELC. The other two might maybe get AHL deals.

I know they had some hope for Gordeev but the little I heard about him and even less about the other two, meh is right

Now we have that sweetener for the Marleau trade.

Free 7th round pick? Neat.

I suspect this means we are in line for a bigger deal with Minnesota deeper into the off season.

No prospects stock has ever taken as sharp a dive as Fedor Gordeev’s just did.

Is Zaitsev buddies with Gordeev and this is why he asked for a trade? Things that make you go hmmm

I hope good things happen for Gordeev, seems a bit strange as he is so young and so large and fast.

I have to trust the Leaf management about this one.  Good we got a 7th for him.

Must be something they dont like or think he can become. He is a big boy though. Good luck to him.

He was what a 5th round pick initially? Was always a long shot to turn into a player.  Maybe he turns into something with Minnesota but I guess the Leafs decided there were too many guys ahead of him

Yup he was always a long shot and they only have 50 pro contracts correct? No need to tie up one woth an extreme longshot.
