That said, I thought they had a pretty good draft this summer, so there's a chance things are finally turning around.
Oh, they have other players, just these two are showing they are at the top of their list and aren't taking a back seat to anyone right now.

They have the smurf Gaudrea at Boston College.
Markus Granlund younger brother of the Wild's highly rated Granlund who had a very good year as an 18 year old in Finland.
Max Reinhart who like Kadri isn't putting up points in the AHL right now. TJ Brodie, Aliu, ...

We just don't focus on other teams' prospects like we do the Leafs.

Interestingly enough, the Flames used Horak last year as a 4th. line Center in the NHL and the comments about him were how smart he is on the ice. They gave him an opportunity to grow in the NHL but only a little over 10 minutes a game. It does not look like that stunted his development as he's scored 6 goals in 6 games to start the AHL season. We often have the debate about few minutes in the NHL versus lots of minutes in the AHL.

Horak and two 2nd. round picks they got for Erixon. Erixxon wanted to play in NY, and now he's Columbus property. Karma.


Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
