Hey Johnny, would look fwd to your observations, didn't know you were living over in Sweden.
Nilsson really got on my radar this christmas, calm, smart, competitive blueliner. Really like his poise and game. Looks like a steal in the 4th rd. If he keeps progressing he will past a lot of our D on the depth chart. The Leafs and Swedes have a great history together, would love this to continue! Cheers mate.
Cheers, will do.
But he might end up somewhere else or even try his luck in the AHL if he (and TML) feels that is the best thing for him. But personally I think playing in the SEL for a couple of season would be better for him. And I guess there will be plenty of players on the Marlies next season looking for ice time so no need to rush forward his move over.
He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
gardiner looked amazing before his concussion, anyone who says, he has looked bad all year, I don't what you guys are watching, it will take some time, concussions are tough to come back from right away, so patience is needed
Devane out there with Ryan and Mckegg. Have to admit I like how Jamie is skating, Underhill influence has helped.
I think she'll be a difference maker for a lot of our prospects having a pro, even NHL, career .. If the Leafs can tailor their later picks, high skilled guys or big guys with skating issues, and she can iron them out .. Could be very lethal for the future
