exactly.

We lost Niedermayer. So what.

We lost Seguin and Hamilton. Two players.

But both have the leafs listed as 20th anyways.

Are you still clinging to the argument of "but I 'like' the leafs, so that meas they're the best"? or have you matured past forming opinions like that?
When did anyone say that?

Not at all......the people who rank them think that both Chicago and Detroit have a better overall group of prospects.....I do not know enough about all the prospects but understand that they do....and I trust the rankings.

We lack high end prospects ....lots of our top prospects are currently going backwards and some of the young one's are not even dressing.....this does not inspire a lot of confidence in our prospects.

You guys have no answer because you know you dont know more than a scouting panel of NHL scouts and have to resort to ignoring reality.

Thats all thats going on here. Nothing more.

I myself am proud to say I dont spend enuf time scouting every prospect around the league. I guess your guys' ego doesnt allow you to admit that very simple fact.

But that teeny tiny little fact doesnt matter to them or even concern them at all.
Then you clearly have reading comprehension issues.

The fact is that you dont know more than a panel of scouts do.

Thats the only fact that needs to be said.

If you acknowledged that fact, you would realize youd have no argument against the hockey news and ultimately hockeys future for rating the LEafs 20th out of 30 teams (bottom ten) in the league after being the worst team in modern day NHL history.!!!!!!!!!!!

But their individual rankings of the prospects tell a completely different story. A breakdown was provided earlier. I could see if one team had significantly more average prospects to counter the fact that they rank Torontos individual prospects better, but this isn't the case. Their team rankings fly in the face of their individual ones.

Thats one option, no reason we can't have a normal discussion on here and ignore the riffraff.

The funny thing is......both of you complaining about people referring to the Kessel trade when this trade cost us two very high Draft picks...this subject has everything to do with why our prospect group is not ranked as high as it should.

Also why the hell did we trade our 2nd pick 39th over all to draft a player who's upside currently is a 3rd line player.......these are the reasons why we lack prospects.

(and look pretty dumb)

So in essence, both sides are right as of now. But only the future holds the true answer.

Can everyone agree with that?
Not really, no.

Even if Kessel walks and the others become great, we still got more out of Kessel than anything we got from the other trades.

Conspiracy theories arent what most people call normal discussions.

VEry immature actually and could be a sign of some underlying issue in my own opinion.

I mean you went on record here saying that Hockeys Future, the host of this site youre using, makes the rankings a certain way "to troll Leafs fans" your words not mine..

so...uh........is the next logical thing to talk about aliens or jfk assassination theories...or what? You tell me conspiracy guy!

Raycroft took us closer to the playoffs than Kessel has even come close to. Kessel hasn't "got" us anything.

Raycroft has a wins record. Kessel has no points records.

So youre simply wrong. Just wrong. Trry to provide substance to your opinions.

Phil Kessel has led us to the sewer of the league every year and has no record for points.

He could be a member of another team after next year and that will be all we received in return for Seguin Hamilton and our other draft pick.

So yes the trade could be much worse than any of those.
Raycroft is tied for wins and he played about 10-15 more games than Eddie. 37 wins with 72 starts, a below .900 SV% and an above 2.00 GAA is not very good or helpful at all.

He "got" us closer to the playoffs than Kessel.

Kessel so far has "got" Toronto 2nd last, 9th last, and 5th last.

Raycroft cost one prospect and "got" us more.

Kessel cost two better prospects and "got" us less.
