I've seen enough of Tlusty to know exactly what he is.
Ya but have you seen him for the past two seasons? Because hes been improving at the NHL level noticably as he actually gets ice time.
In Toronto basically what happened was Ron Wilson hated him Steen and Colaicovo (1st round picks...NHL players) and caused Leafs management or vis a versa to get rid of them in order along with several others of the past few years.
And Toronto does worse. Each time. When they do that...
These things add up I've noticed as an observant individual.
And each time Toronto loses out on a considerable amount of assets.
So while some teams got Claude Giroux with their first round picks (by keeping them) other teams got nothing in the 2006 first round of the NHL entry draft.
This is why we are really bad.
Because we keep trading NHL players away for less than that.
Great. People have called Chris Kelly a complete player. No one calls Kessel a complete player.
What's your point?
Chris Kelly is not a top six player like Jiri Tlusty.
They both give a tremendous effort in all three zones but that is where it ends.
