I asked my buddy how Malhotra was. He said he was good, but lost steam at the end of the season, but that's expected since he didn't have a real camp, or anything.

Why did you say "they were experts". Nobody around here knew Weise and Weaver. And when there were talks about Franson, most of us around here were using Leafs' posters view on him to make up our minds cause we had no idea.

Don't expect people to know every third/fourth liners and every 6th/7th Ds in the NHL.

He's been a leader everywhere he has been, maybe outside of NYR only because he was a teenager over there.
I think that the media sometimes try to kindle some type of controversy to create interest, and a lot of the remarks were made during the free agent Frenzy, which was full bore this year on Day1.

Who Malhotra? If they don't know him they would be hard pressed to know half the players in the league, IMO.

It's not like anyone of those players are unknown prospects, even Franson was a surprise gift to Toronto from Nashville, all are veteran players, Weise for us west coasters was well known also playing in Vancouver. They should be known to any so-called experts or fans that watch lots of hockey, IMO.
