Sitting on 23 goals in 52 games, can Tyler hit 30 this year despite missing games over Christmas.

Nice 1st year in the OHL. Wonder how well he could have done if he went there last year?

How many games does he have left to play? I wanna say it's 8, but am not sure. If he has 25 (again I am not sure how many goals he has) then I see him topping out at 28. Still impressive for his first year.

Do you know if his team is in the playoff hunt? Wouldn't mind seeing him play a game for the marlies if his junior team doesn't make it.

He has 6 games left and yes they are locked for the playoffs. Third place currently in the east. I think he'll get around 28 as well. I hope he proves me wrong and gets more obviously.

He should be a good addition to the Marlies next year. I hope he can take this offensive skill level which he has shown into the AHL as he moves up slowly.

My favourite prospect. Oozes character, grew up a Leafs fan, plays a rough and tumble game.

Rielly and Kadri wont be pushed around with Biggs on the ice, mark my words

Bs...THAT'S BS AND YOU KNOW IT!

I had to

I like this guy but what I question the most is his offensive skill. OHL or not, I won't judge until he hits the NHL and see what he is capable of. He would be best to stay and develop his offensive in the AHL next year or perhaps another there.

Totally agree, he has a lot of things not many Leaf players or prospects have. Size and the ability to score at the same time. Not saying he's going to be a 30 goal guy but he'll be a decent 20-25 goal guy IMO while also bringing a nasty side to the club

If he can even hit that 20 mark or even 15, we should be happy. Goals should be a bonus for us, his other aspects are the key. However there are a lot of prospects who are driven like him, one that comes to mind is Leivo.

With Biggs intangibles, if he can score 20 + 20 a year, he's going to be a core player for us. His contributions will be measured by some in simple points, but they won't tell the true story of his value in the NHL. Best way to put it, Tyler has a presence about him, that is a positive in the dressing room and on the ice. This is a big piece for our organization moving fwd.

If we are lucky Biggs is going to follow Kassasians career path. That is, he will struggle producing on the bottom 6 with low minutes into his 20s. And comparison to lucic are ridiculous at this point. Likely Kassasian won't break out onto the leafs until 22 or later much like Kadri. The most redeeming quality of him is that he is an upgrade in skill over say Brown. That said, if that is what he turns out to be then what a waste of first rounder. That is, guys like Colby Armstrong and Steckel are first rounders.

It's surprising that so many people are so optimistic about a first round draft choice that probably won't amount to much more than a goon type. He was drafted for his physicality, size and intangibles not for his potential scoring prowess.

I'm thinking a bigger Komarov is his upside and like Komarov any offense will be a benefit.

WIth a kind of player like Biggs, watching him in junior as a 19 year old rookie isnt going to tell you much at all. Until he hits the pros, it's going to be awfully hard to tell how his style is going to fit in.

Not surprising, really. McKenzie was making comparisons to Lucic (offensively as well) less then a minute after we drafted him.

But I agree with Leaf Rocket. High end offense is secondary at this point. 15g and being a physical presence and leader will satisfy me. If he scores 20 a few times I'll be ecstatic.

25 goals as a 19 year old is not very impressive

Lucic fought and beat the heavyweights in the WHL.

Biggs is not even close.

Which leads me to believe they want him to work on non-fighting aspects of his game.

Scoring hasn't been great and from what I remember seeing him he was handling PP/PK duties....all situations.

Wouldn't mind being patient with Biggsy in the hope that he slowly develops into an NHL-ready rookie that can handle the defensive side of the game.

Except that's not really his game? It's also his first year in the OHL. It's not like he's a returning player.

Perhaps, but you could have added:

For a 1 dimensional player that brings nothing else to the table.

Fortunately Tyler brings a lot more to the table.

You would think a 19 year old coming out of college would be able to show these kids a thing or two in junior hockey (like Jerry D'Amigo did after leaving Div.1 RPI).

Which is fine, provided he is manhandling the defensive side of the ice..

Not sure if that's the case or not because I've tuned out of junior hockey since the NHL has returned.

From the OHL games I saw this year, I wasn't impressed by Biggs.

I was a big fan of him when we got him, and got excited the more I read about him, but really disappointed on the ice.

Watching Biggs, its really easy to project his game to a pro level. Can't wait to see him with the Marlies.

big power forwards who don't mind dropping the gloves and can put the puck in the net are hard to come by, that is why we drafted biggs so high.

Its not like he was a stretch. He was the "BPA" according to McKenzie when we took him.

Bob compiles his BPA list by talking to multiple scouts.

Next year is Biggs playing for the Marlies?

If so, he will probably get top line minutes because I don't see many of our other forward prospects that project better than him.
