yeah, I think this is an example of Leafs rushing prospects. Poor move by Burke IMHO.

Umm he's going to go to the OHL most likely, how are they actually rushing him when he's not even going to the major leagues?

he'd be blowing off one of his 7 pro seasons before FA, I really don't believe the Leafs want this happening.

I'd almost be willing to bet that he does end up playing in the OHL, although he may end up somewhere other than Kitchener, maybe London, Windsor or possibly Brampton

It is very unlikely that he makes the Leafs this season. He will either play in the OHL or AHL. Both probably better leagues for developing prospects than the NCAA so how is this rushing him?


To paraphrase you: yeah I think this is an example of blindly hating the Leafs and bashing them no matter what they do.

This guy looks like he will be a real good player for the Leafs in the future. Just about every time he gets the puck he's made something happen. I can see this start the season in the AHL which is good developemental league for all future NHL players. Great move by Burke and company to bring this guy up to further develope his game at the pro level. This guy has been on the rise so why slow him down. I'll be really interested next week when he debuts in the main camp and plays some exhibition games against the big boys.
