Is there any way he can get traded to a contender? I could have sworn the deadline passed.
I guess it's just a hypothetical question, either way AHL for me.
The deadline has past and he's likely going to play his last Junior game on March 16th and his first pro game could likely be on the 19th against Lake Erie. If he does get in that game he could play in as many as 16 games before the playoffs, Which could be a huge benefit to him going forward.
Same goes for Percy possibly joining a week or 10 after.
Nice. I was so glad he fell to #5. Kinda surprised Rienhart was picked ahead of him.
A bit like Lightning picking up Brett Connolly with their 6th overall picks even do he was injured for most parts of his draft year. I guess that injuries does not affect draft position that much if what the player rely heavily on is above the shoulders.
Does anyone think Eakins is praying that the Moosejaw Warriors make the play-offs? Really though they are not a good team,and won't make them. So in march Rielly's career as a Leaf officially begins. Thats something i will be looking forward to.
A good play-off run,and half to full season with Eakins will work wonders for him.
