So far? One of those players' moms is getting the kazoos out for his 19th birthday here in a week or so.

Yeah that Seguin kid sucks. And that Jared Knight kid leading his team in scoring down in the OHL. I am sure he'll suck too. Boston gets another top 5 pick to go with these losers? They got ROBBED. Should have kept the franchise player being paid 5.4 mil to put up 58 points.

Imagine this board if the Bruins drafted Jeff Skinner? Even Cam Fowler...

Dodged a bullet there

How about Ribeiro for Komisarek? http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=350568
They may have more in common that just being ex-Habs.
So in the final analysis, two players currently on the Leafs roster:

One allegedly hit a woman in the face.

One was arrested for an altercation at a bar.

Ribeiro was seen consuming alcohol (enough to pass for appearing intoxicated in Texas) and being part of a group who apparently had a verbal altercation with an off-duty cop who may or may not have instigated the issue.

The whole "Ribeiro is a bad guy" stuff is complete mmmmeh. Not that I'm trying to pawn him off on Toronto please dear god don't misunderstand me!!!1!!1

Ribeiro:
GP G A Pts PIM
48 10 34 44 12

.91 PPG. Not too shabby If I say so. He seems like he would do great with Kessel as he is a center and is a pure playmaker.

He may not fit with Burke's "tough" mentality but just might be me or the Leafs seem to need a playmaking 1st line center.

Yeah, Yeah. Call me when they do something. The Leafs third rounder (Mckegg) is outscoring future star Jared Knight right now in the O.

That's fine. But why assume they'll all become future stars?

Not assuming anything, just pointing out the absurdity of coming to a conclusion on the NHL future of an 18 year old.
