Problem is I see London bidding for the Mem Cup next year, and in that case, will want to retain as much youth and picks as possible, and Bailie and Patterson have done a fine job as it is.

Any teams have needs these players would fill? Thomson could be had as well, though he is a nice O/A candidate for next year.

I might move him too. No point keeping him around as an OA for next year when there is a possibility he goes the way Crescenzi did.

But then again, Crescenzi, who is languishing away in the ECHL instead of being returned to the OHL is another example of the Leaf "braintrust" in action.

They actually run a fine operation in New Jersey so if Thomson were to be cut from their AHL team, he'd be sent back here.
