It really depends on how you look at it. You can't really call them a weak haul if you get those guys in return for them. True enough that none of the guys we picked will directly benefit the Leafs by playing for them.
Yet, at the same time not sure an article can say the 2008 draft did nothing for us. I'd say that Gardiner is a pretty good guy to get out of that draft. We'll see what Colborne turns into as well.
I mean sure if you want to write an article about how the Leafs picks turned out it wasn't all that good. But the 2008 draft did benefit the Leafs in a few ways.
