Join us in the comments as Alex Tran and I go head-to-head carving up the Leafs youth.
(Note**) – for the record I will be making the picks for each of us as Alex is
boozing busting loose at some bar. I asked him if he was drunk, he said no, but his picks will tell show us the truth.
In the spirit of ranking the organization’s top young talent (prospects + established NHLers), Gus and I will be facing off tonight at approximately 10pm EST in a 1 on 1 drafting session of Maple Leaf players who are 24 years of age or younger (1986 birthdays and on).
Gus IS the Pro Scouting Coordinator for Mckeen’s Hockey, so I will have my work cut out for me, but I’m looking forward to the challenge. We will be selecting 6 forwards, 4 defensemen, and 1 goaltender each for a total of 22 young players with approximately 1 minute pauses between each pick. Contract status and/or cap hit will not be taken into account as this is purely an evaluation of performance and potential.
The draft will take place live in the comments section for all readers to follow, so be sure to come out and provide your two cents as it happens. Following the draft, the MLHS community will have the opportunity to vote to decide which crop of young players they would most like to move forward with.
