If you lose a player who earns $3 mil (Armstrong) to a injury for about a month, do you trade for another $3 mil winger? No, you don't. Beleskey could have filled a temporary void as far as energy goes. Burke drafted him and Beleskey is his kind of player. But I guess they have enough energy forwards as it stands even with Armstrong on the injury list. I realize that Beleskey isn't anything more than a reserve forward on the Leafs when all their forwards are healthy...
Well it wasn't an attack on what you, personally, know. Sorry if it came off that way. Next time I'll aim my rants at their proper targets.

But even so, I suspect that Beleskey is only on your radar in that capacity because he occupies a place in your mind that he couldn't occupy in really ANYONE else's. Like the GM of another team. Just because they play a similar style doesn't mean he'd ever be a legitimate option if he isn't any good. Toronto's own farm system, and every team's system really, is replete with the same player. There are a bunch of guys who play like Colby Armstrong who will never make the NHL, and Beleskey is probably one of those.
