In all honesty, I feel bad that we (certainly myself included) rip on this kid on an internet forum pretty good. I have no doubt that he wants to be a member of the Kitchener Rangers and is putting forward his best effort in doing so.

I simply believe he does not have the pedigree to be an Overager in the OHL.

In regards to AC, I wouldnt bet any money on him returning. Leafs had a good opportunity to do so when he had no team for two weeks, they passed on it. They have been adament on his playing against men, not boys.

There isnt a pressing need to add O/A's to this team really, I'd be happy with a top pairing stay at home defender of any age really, though from an O/A prospective, Jake Cardwell and Brandon Archibald can likely be had on two underwhelming squads in the 67's and the Spirit. I dont think either would cost the team a top young prospect, but maybe a Josh Sterk + mid range picks. Maybe throw in a Pedersen and up the picks to higher round and get Trocheck as well, with a condition on his return for O/A that gives up more.

Sterk, Pedersen++ for Trocheck and Archibald. Probably would cost alot of extra picks though!
I liked your earlier trade with Archibald and Ross. Also months ago I was hoping for a Kantor/Sefton trade with the Wolves.
I know including Sefton would come pricey but would to downgrade it slightly I would gladly take Charlie Dodero (with Kantor) back here instead.

As for AC....who the heck knows with the Leafs.....didn't they send D'Amigo here sometime in late January?
