Leafs fans are generally happy with the two. Some of us are pissed that we gave up a 2nd to move up, when we might have been able to still get both these guys, plus one of the great early 2nd round prospects.
But Biggs is doing well in his first year in the OHL, 19G and 21A in 43 games. Not dominating, but he's not really being relied on for offense there. Also, his physical game is coming along very well according to what I've been reading. He is not the sexiest pick, but if he puts it all together, people will be talking about him as a top 10 prospect in this draft because of his physically dominating PWF potential.
Percy is everything we expected him to be. The word that dominates his scouting report is smart. The kid just oozes hockey IQ. He will not put up huge offensive numbers, but can contribute. He will not blow you away with his speed, but he can move the puck. He is the perfect future partner for Phaneuf. He is currently captain for Mississauga in the OHL, and will likely see time with the Marlies after the OHL season, like he did last year, playing 6 games for the Marlies in the playoffs and looking sharp. Leaf fans are pretty excited about a future D-group that includes Rielly, Gardiner, Percy, Finn as additions.
