Will MacKinnon be as good as Crosby? Will Reinhart? Who cares? Will either be really good NHLers in their own way? I'm sure they will, just like Segin, Hall, Tavares, Ovechkin, Malkin....

As a Leaf fan do I want MacKinnon? Sure! Reinhart? Of course! Barkov? Why not? Heck, give Toronto Klimchuk, Kujawinski, Lazar, I'd love it! Will the Leafs get any of these guys, or equals? Don't hold your breath. Team management isn't too far separated (in terms of planning/foresight) than the ones who said no to Joe Sakic (even though the scouts wanted Sakic badly). Maybe they'll get lucky, but I doubt it. Oh, the pain of unfulfilled hopes.
And Toronto let Dudley go........

They say, he and Timmins were at the Hlinka tournament. Things that make you go hmmmmm!
