I know it's funny - what cracks me up are the people who automatically ink d man roster spots in the NHL Leafs for these rookies. Let's just see how they handle the AHL first, is what I would like to see.
If they can handle the likes of Trent Hunter, Craig Darby or Don MacLean bearing down on them with complete ease, then I just might give him a chance for Marian Hossa or Kovalev bearing down him them.
No harm in being a little conservative.
