That's fantastic for a 20 year old, great news that our overseas picks are looking good, I think Nilsson will also take a big step next year.

Granberg has been good so far. Was a beast against Czech Republic today.

Good to know, he's progressed very nicely. Looking forward to seeing this beast in North America soon.

Granberg, Nilsson, and MacWilliam on the Marlies blue line in a couple years is going to be painful for other teams to play against

Add in Finn, maybe Percy (he'll probably be with the Leafs though at that point) .. Some good young defensemen coming up the pipeline

You can never have too many quality D-men. Particularly if you plan on making a long playoff run.

So, guys who do you think has more upside between Granberg and MacWilliam? I personally lean Granberg, but I think adding both to the marlies blue line and tracking them will be interesting.

Percy, MacWilliam, Granberg, Blacker together next year will make for some interesting prospect watching next year on marlies.

Granberg IMO has better puck movement. However both are damn good, macwilliam is a giant too.

What are their hockey IQs like? One of them replace Fraser? Playing Fraser for the physically tougher opponents while MacWilliam/Granberg play against the other teams?

MacWilliam looked rather small beside Gysbers, looks more like 6'1"

Rielly, Gardiner, Percy, Finn, Blacker, Granberg, Nilsson, MacWilliam, Loov

It's beautiful to see that our team's biggest hole (Defense) is the most deep prospect position. I have no doubt that with patience and 2-3 development years, the Leaf defense will be one of the best in the league.

I'm still amazed at his weight. Was an NHL ideal weight when we drafted him, few skilled, fast players like him are. Someone like Karlsson is listed as 180 as a comparison.

Rielly
Gardiner
Nilsson
Finn

Those are my favorites of our dmen prospects. Rielly and Gardiner have elite potential (Rielly more so IMO). I absolutely LOVE Nilsson's game - very active, physical, tough, but at the same time very smart. Finn has always had the potential to be a great dman, but injuries have slowed him down. I still think he can get back on track.

I don't think we are going out on a limb suggesting Gardiner is NHL capable today.

Rielly, Nilsson and Finn are still up in the air.

Finn had a poor year health wise. Mind you I've heard Mono is no excuse for not being the best player on the ice.

i like that granberg guy, watched a bit of the canada vs sweden game, he looked a little slow but it didnt make him a liability. I think we need to start piling up prospects at the C position, we have alot at D, but not so many at C.

They are playing on the big ice right?

I was thinking about the Canadian line-up. That is a nice collection of young NHL stars on their forward lines. Not often will you see that kind of collection on one NHL team.

very true ahhaha, i didnt see him much so my memory could be flawed.


i do know that he is a big guy and i can see him being very effective for our team, i like big guys that can skate and move the puck for defence (franson).

The problem with the franson-fraser pairing is that it is slow, the best spot for franson to play in is playing with someone speedy like gardiner IMO.

what do you think ulf?

I'd like Phaneuf to stay home and be a defensive d-man, and 2nd. powerplay unit shooter.

Defensive - Offensive
Phaneuf-Gardiner
Gunnarsson-Franson
Nilson/Finn/Granberg-Rielly

(in time Rielly moves to 1st. pairing, Franson drops to 3rd.)

PP:

Gardiner-Franson
Phaneuf-Rielly

Marlies next year... (Players under contract for next season)

Leivo (19) - McKegg (20) - Ashton (22)
Ross (20) - Carrick (21) - Lasch (26)
D'amigo (22) - Ryan (21) - Biggs (20)
Devane (22) - Crescenzi (20) - Broll (20)

Percy (19) - Blacker (22)
MacWilliam (23) - Holzer (25)
Granberg (20)

Sparks (19)

Plus there are still some vet players who will likely be resigned... i.e Scott, Ranger, Hamilton and Zigo.

Watched quite a bit of the Canada vs Sweden game, did Granberg play much, I can't remember hearing his name during the broadcast.

http://www.tsn.ca/draftcentre/feature/?id=9601

TSN has him listed as 6'0, 200 lbs as of December 14th, 2012. Anyways, I remember when Karlsson was drafted, his height/ weight were listed as 5'11, 165 lbs. It's been 5 years now since his draft and he's only put on about 15 pounds of muscle. So weighing 20 pounds more as of this day, Rielly is still arguably faster than Karlsson. I don't know what the dynamics are to produce a hard shot for young players but if it's something that can be worked on, Mo-Riles is going to be one stud offensive defenceman.
