Mustache Power carried him to an easy victory.
This is why I don’t like doing prospect profiles.Â Call it the “Curse of GB”.
2008-09′s semi-popular “Getting To Know You” series featured six players who were (at the time) prospects Leafs’ fans were excited about.
One by one, five of these prospects were gradually moved out of the system voted off the team, culminating in yesterday’s decision to not qualify Phil Oreskovic.
The result?Â Dale Mitchell is your MLHS “Getting To Know You” Survivor!

As we head into the draft weekend, Burke’s shown the fans and media that a) he’s not afraid to swing a huge deal and b) no one’s going to see it coming. You can bet he’s going to be be mulling over and considering all sorts of huge blockbuster type scenarios over the next few days, and there could be the teeniest, tiniest, slightest, smaller than Wallin’s point totals chance that he’ll have an interesting decision to make: whether to trade Schenn or Kadri. Yes, I know the popular opinion is to never trade either of them and I’m fully on board with that, but this is purely hypothetical. Imagine Sidney Crosby or whatever player of your choice is coming back the other way.
Now… the other team has given you the choice of giving up either defenseman Luke Schenn, the former 5th overall pick and future defensive anchor on the blueline, or Nazem Kadri, the former 7th overall pick and talented potential 1st line center. Which one would you be more inclined to trade away, and which one would you be more inclined to keep?
No copping out!
