Next year we should see Biggs, Percy, and Leivo join the Marlies. For the year after that (2013 - 2014), we already have guys like Finn, Brown, Cameransi, and Euro D-men like Granberg and Nilsson who are likely to join the Marlies. We have a steady stream of prospects flooding into the Marlies, over the next couple of years some of them will develop into quality NHLers. Of course, we also have Morgan Rielly who is looking like a stud. I am not worrying too much about our HF prospect rankings, I like the way Burkes built up our organizational depth.
I always wondered, why do Leafs fans credit Burke for drafting more than Dave Morrison?
