Leafs Prospect Update – December 17

Leafs Prospect Update – December 17

Welcome to your slightly tardy prospect update.  This will probably be my last during the holiday season as my non-NHL focus will shift to the World Juniors — we’ll have you covered on that front, too.

My last post here at MLHS discussed the Canadian entry to the World Juniors, but Team Canada isn’t the only team that will feature members of the Leafs’ prospect pool.  While Sweden hasn’t named its team at this stage, 2013 pick Andreas Johnson has been invited to selection camp.  Johnson is putting up impressive point totals (22 pts in 32 games) in the Swedish Elite League as an 18 year old.  As a player, Johnson is an undersized skill forward with crafty hands and good speed.

Johnson’s fellow 2013 draft pick, Fabrice Herzog will be sporting red and white at the World Juniors for Team Switzerland.  Now I know you’re probably thinking, “yeah, but I could make that team.” First of all, you’d be wrong because you suck at hockey, and second of all Herzog is putting up almost a point per game in the QMJHL right now and he doesn’t like your attitude.  The Swiss are an international program on the rise and aren’t to be taken lightly in these tournaments anymore.

In OHL news, Connor Brown is still the top point producer in the league and Matt Finn is third among defensemen in points.  Neither will feature in this year’s tournament, but both are having seasons that should make Leafs fans take note.

Until next time, I hope you guys are enjoying Nabil and Kate’s faces in that TSN promo as much as I do.

It's been almost a decade since the NHL fought for and got its cap. Here's what teams were spending on payroll before the wage controls were introduced.

Detroit $77 mil

NYR $76 mil

Philly $68 mil

Dallas $68 mil

Colorado $63 mil

Toronto $62 mil

St. Louis $61 mil

Anaheim $53 mil

L.A. $53 mil

Washington $50 mil

Jersey $48 mil

In no order: Van $42 mil, NYI $40 mil, Boston 46 mil, Edmonton $33 mil, Minny $27, Phoenix $39 mil, S. Jose $34 mil, Pitt $23 mil, Buffalo 32 mil, Montreal $38 mil, Ottawa $39 mil, Atlanta $28 mil, Carolina $35 mil, Florida $26 mil, Tampa $34 mil, Chicago $30 mil, Columbus $34 mil, Nashville $21 mil.

Tampa won the cup that year over Calgary. Leafs lost to Philly in the second round.

DamoSpin: Jake Gardiner can look great. Then he can check out mentally, ice the puck pointlessly as he did tonight, create scenario for GWG. Strange.

The Fourth Period reports #Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin has been looking for a top-six scoring winger & has been shopping Bourque & Gionta

Seems Reimer didn't take very many shots in the optional skate this morning and the Leafs TV people seem to think he starts tonight .

Must have lost them in the cut and paste. Hard using a palate. But I remember they weren't spending a lot in those days.

@Radar O'Rielly Damigo had a rough night.  He also took a pretty solid shot face first into the glass when Sill ran him a few minutes prior to Sill fighting Bodie.


Side note : Fuck Kerry Fraser

@Murph2417 I didn't play from the age of 14-44.  I play 2 or 3 times a week now and Im committed to playing into my 70,s


Join a group and play ,don't cheat yourself.  You can't be any worse than I was after 30 years

@Murph2417 It's always a great feeling to go out on the ice and skate no matter the skill level. I always get a sense of freedom whenever I get the chance to do it. Enjoy!

@Mcost61Bourque + Gionta + mtl's 1st rd pick.......for a top 6 scoring winger.......maybe(might want a prospect as well!!)

Burtonboy

@Jmessih @Murph2417 He will come close to doubling that when his contract is up in a couple of yrs . 10-12 mil per I would say 

Tim Horton

@Jmessih @Murph2417 They just locked him in young with a risky contract that paid off, In 2 years Chicago will have to pay Kane and  Toews over 8 mil.

@Jmessih @Cameron19 @Xxxxxnew Well, he said that the D'Amigo hit was clean, even though it was unnecessary. He talked about needing to eliminate the culture that encourages barbarians and gladiators to absolutely obliterate their opponent. Basically, he's saying that Bortuzzo could have simply thrown D'Amigo to the ice and achieved the same result.

@dlb eh @JWaterdrager The risk is if they picked the right players, not the contracts. With the cap rising, their cap hit in 2 years is comparable to a 4,8 cap hit now. Wich I think they are worth al ready, and don't see why they wouldn't in 2 years.

To win a championship they need more than players worth of 4,8 million of course, so if they picked the right horses, they win big, if they picked the wrong ones they play even

@dlb eh I think RNH and Hall are worth $6 million on a $80 million cap. Now If they meet expectations, they will be bargains
