Gerber came in at the end of 2009, when we had our own pick. If we had just lost one or two more games, the Leafs would have jumped from 7th to 5th in the draft order, which would mean a swap of Kadri for Schenn or Oliver Ekman-Larsson potentially in our system. Kadri vs Schenn is up for debate, but if we had drafted OEL, our fortunes could have been very different the past year or two...
