Matt Frattin has scored at a 45 goal pace since entering the AHL and he didn't make the Leafs roster. Should help add a little perspective here.
He has zero games at the NHL level because our team thinks it's smarter to go with a journeyman 2nd line center than it is for a promising young rookie. How's he supposed to do anything at the NHL if we don't give him an opportunity?
I don't care what the Leafs do. If your best example is to mention what one of the worst teams in the league is doing that doesn't make it look like the Canucks made a bright move. Another team, the Buffalo Sabres who are pretty thin at C named Mikhail Grigorenko to their starting roster.
