The leafs are really going to need more cheap talent coming up through the ranks. If a couple of these guys can turn into good 2nd-3rd liners in 2 years, that would really, really help the cap sheet.

I think Nick Robertson gets an accelerated Trevor Moore-like track, especially with Hyman expiring in one more season after this and Robertson being able to fill a very skilled grinder role. (Probably losing Moore to expansion)

SDA is more like Adam Brooks/Jeremy Bracco. His offence needs to be through the roof to get earlier consideration, or an underrated defensive game needs to become more apparent. If he develops bulk and more foot speed, we could see him in 3-4 years. They’re both still so young.

Methinks Hyman will not be a Leaf next season, his 2.5 M is replaceable with a cheaper alternative, although Babs loves him.

Not to split hairs but he makes 2.25 per but I think the same way. He's replaceable and they can save 1.5 on the cap.

Let's wait to see how the rest of the month goes before saying how replaceable Hyman is. Shouldn't make any claims after 2 games but the jury still seems out on that one.

Did you see how that game ended? It's like the Wild West! The Petes could use a little team defence and a goalie.

Added interest on the Petes for those of us from the UK as they've got only the third ever UK based drafted player (Liam Kirk) so nice to have interest on a few levels and another team to keep an eye on
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

Excellent book excerpt in the Athletic this AM about Nick Robertson's birth and first two months in neo natal intensive care. Wow, what a story, so great to see this young man and the way he plays.

SDA is in a slump, he had 14 points in 5 games.  :'(
