Judging from what I saw of some of the hardly smooth young defensemen and career AHLer Danny Richmond so far, if Matt Lashoff is a little bit better, he may be an important call up latter in the season.
he could be a important call up later on in the season.. i think thats why Burke Traded for him because last year we had very few d-man to choose from for a call up . and remember LASHOFF is still just 24
I beg to differ his defensive game needs work no doubt about that but he produces and thats what the leafs lack , send down ledburr and bring him up hes got a nice first pass and a very smooth skater and i personally watch almost every marlies game and Lashoff,Holzerand Aulie are the only 3 other then Simon Gysbers that may or may not develope into nhlers. Another player im not to fond on is Juraj Mikus hes got all the skills but hes slow and weak for his size
I've heard hes garbage defensively and that hes nothing more than an AHLer.
he's pretty bad, even for the AHL defensively, however we could really use a player with his skillset. I don't even know if we'll re-sign him next year because we won't have any room. He likely won't even get a qualifying offer from us IMO.
