Interesting. Who is going to play with Hagman? I always thought it would be grabo and Kulemin.

I thought the best line last year after the TD was Ponikarovsky-Grabovski-Kulemin.

He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.

Yes, and with 62 players in camp, that should be no surprise. But I guess today was just those two working out/scrimmaging, while tomorrow the third team should come in.

Kadri, Blake, Stajan, Hagman, Stalberg, Boyce, Brent, Devane, Deveaux, Hamilton, Kurtz, Ondrus, Scott are the forwards left.

Anyone want to take a guess at lines?

Blake - Stajan - Hagman
Stalberg - Kadri - Kurtz
Boyce - Brent - Hamilton
Devane - Ondrus - Deveaux

That leaves Greg Scott as the odd man out.

(Tlusty - Bozak - Hanson)

with Allison and Kadri on the outside looking in for now, but with a real chance of cracking the top-6 if they impress.

and with that extra line there right in the mix for a regular spot, and not really on the outside looking in at all.
Interesting that he's got Mitchell and Primeau at centre and Wallin and Mayers on the wing. I was wondering who would get tossed on the wing.

The best battles will be if Tlusy/Bozak/Hanson can beat out a vet for a spot. I don't expect any of them to be sitting in the press box if they don't make the regular squad.

For me, it would be a big disappointment if Jiri is not in the lineup October 1st.

ditto.
Stempniak just had a bad transition from the Blues. This is the year to prove himself off a clean slate.

I'm sure he'll have 'extra' motivation being a UFA also.

Yeah he is likely worried about going from making 3.5 mill this year to the league minimum. I hope he steps up big time this year to prove his worth.

contract year for sure. however, in difference from career mercs like tucker, stemps plays every year very consistently and productively. just did not fit in well in the ravaged leaf locker room last year. the mood there must've been apocalyptic. but now brighter days are ahead, hopefully.

Apparently I was born on the say day as Bill Thomas. So I am going consider him still a young prospect.

Yee, what does this poor guy gotta do to get some NHL ice time!

I have a hard time believing this group has earned it ahead of him.
Wallin - Mitchell - Stempniak
Orr - Primeau - Mayers
