Young Guns II


Alex and I will once again continue the Young Guns prospect draft. We are drafting:

6 9 forwards, 4 defensemen, 1 goaltender
Total of 22 young players with a birthday year no later than 1986 (24 yrs old max)
Contract status and/or cap hit will not be taken into account

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. More details after the jump.

The intention of this exercise isn’t as a fantasy draft, it’s not the accumulation of points. We’re essentially carving the Leafs prospects into two sides and evaluating which of the two squads has more appeal.
