Good for him, he is been good in his own right but playing with two star players does have a lot of weight on his performance.

Took the guy 7 years to breakout, that breakout is still only 20 games in, and it hasn't been overly impressive in the first place. He also plays with Staal and Semin?


I'm not ready to complain about this one yet.

I sometimes wonder if Tlusty was traded from Toronto as a bit of a nice thing to do for a player as his questionable acts as a teenager would follow him forever here - in Carolina he got a fresh start.

Meh he wouldn't crack our top 9 IMO....

I take: Kulemin, JVR, Kessel, Lupul, Frattin, and Komarov/MacArthur over him.

I think it will work out pretty good.
Stalberg and Tlusty for Percy and Leivo is how it shakes out at this point.

And I would like Stalberg over any of them at this point. Especially since we drafted Finn and Percy has had a few concussions.

A definite loss at this point but ah well- the Rask trade was worse

Certainly appears to have earned his spot as a legitimate top 6 forward on the Canes.

The E.Staal -- Semin -- Tlusty line is producing well.

The only Leaf player with more goals than Tlusty's 9 is JVR.

Happy for him.

Don't see why we are targeted for these types of threads so much. Do you see us gloating on Philly's forums how great JVR is doing?

Tlusty would have never worked out in here. He needed a fresh start after weinergate.

I actually don't consider this a lost trade. Tlusty just wasn't going to work here.

I remember very clearly when we had Tlusty that he just wasn't going to work out here, when it comes to big time situations, he freezes. Good for him though, at least he's a solid NHLer.

Impossible to say. Kadri is significantly significantly improved in his NHL play compared to previous seasons. So obviously players in our system can improve over time.

And it's not like we traded Tlusty and he instantly became a success. It took another 3 years of development.

I'd say he's just developing on pace. He was a good player for them last year too.

Tlusty was developing well and had a decent rookie season before Ron Wilson was hired. After that Tlusty wasn't good enough and was sent down to the AHL, where he played well but didn't get much NHL ice and was traded a couple years after.

Alex Steen was another player who suddenly wasn't good enough for the new coach. Both are doing well with their new teams and we should be happy the team didn't trade Kadri for nothing because he too was another solid prospect that wasn't good enough.

Wait until he can do this over multiple seasons. Honestly,grass is always greener. If we trade Bozak when people wanted him to and he put up the same numbers he has been, people would say we were stupid to trade him.

there's no guarantee that either Steen or Tlusty would have success on this team. Some players just need that change of scenery to get their careers going.

Good on Carolina to take the proper time to develop a young talent, with RW and co in TO, we lost a couple of kids that could have been potential core pieces.

Tlusty was also a UFA two years ago after Carolina declined to give him a qualifying offer. So if the Leafs or any other team saw significant upside there they could have had him for nothing.

I can pretty much guarantee it. The only change of scenery they needed was a new coach.

Leafs have Van Riemsdyk, kind of similar to the 'Canes' Tlusty.

JVR was a much higher pick a year later, and was dealt away from his drafting team for less than what one would expect.

They are performing with similar stats this year.

JVR career high 40 points in 75 games
JT career high 36 points in 79 games

JVR career high 21 goals
JT career high 17 goals

I'm quite happy with Van Riemsdyk, and hope we're only seeing the tip of the ice berg. Being picked 2nd. overall brings a lot of expectation, much more than being picked 13th. overall.

Didn't want to pay him what would have been required as he was coming off a poor season that required off season surgery. They signed him July 1st. He agreed to the contract so must have been happy in Carolina.

Jul 6: Tlusty (shoulder) has partnered with Tomas Kaberle, Carolina's new defenseman, for offseason workouts, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports. Tlusty, who signed a one-year, $525,000 contract with the 'Canes on July 1, has something in common with Kaberle, as they both were drafted by the Maple Leafs -- Tlusty was selected a decade after Kaberle -- in 2006. Of course, the Hurricanes have been awfully patient with Tlusty, as the winger has sustained several injuries in his young career, including a shoulder malady that required surgery following the 2010-11 season. Health permitting, Tlusty figures to be an energetic cog on Carolina's lower lines in the coming years.

No way leaf nation would have been patient for 7 years for him to develop. People were calling Kadri a bust after 2. I am happy for him. I agree that this is a small sample, but he looks more like the player who he was supposed to be when he was drafted.
