Some of the Ontario born players in the system. I don't know why Cherry is raging so hard.

And, he uses Spezza, Seguin and Skinner as examples. At what point did we have a chance to pick them up?

I agree. Burke is a foul mouthed, loud buffoon.

I think he means players playing with the team currently. Not players throughout the AHL/OHL

Hey Cherry, you missed the fact that Burke has drafted more Ontario born players in his 3 drafts as the Leafs GM, than the amount we picked in the 7 drafts prior to Burke's signing with Toronto.

But carry on, you old ****ing fool.

There is no point in what he was saying. Tell me, why does it matter to have an Ontario kid? Is it a cool story and all? Sure, but its not like Burke is deliberately trying not to get an Ontario kid. If he finds one he can get that is talented and can help the roster, then Burke will do it like for any other player.

It's ridiculous to think Burke is purposely not trying to get an Ontario kid or getting more Ontario kids is gonna help the team and make the playoffs. Talent is all that matters, I don't care if it is from the US, Russia, Sweden or wherever the hell it's from.

Why can't you get good, valuable assets from anywhere? Why is a player superior just because he is from Ontraio?

Now, just wait until Galchenyuk suits up for us (fingers crossed). American/Russian? Don will have a fit

Don cherry is actually a big fan of kadri. He even got on burke and wilson for "not treating him properly" by sending him up and down the ahl and nhl

Tortorella is, IMO, the main reason the team is in first. On paper, they're still a solid team, but the way they play is truly something to behold. It's as if the players would take a bullet for each other. There's never any reports of "locker room riffs" like there was when Jagr was here, or when Avery was here. There are honestly 13/14 players on the team deserving of a letter on their jersey. Even disregarding the work Tortorella has done, a lot of the players have grown up together. Callahan/Dubinsky/Girardi/Staal/Lundqvist/Anisimov/Stepan have all developed together. And now they have other players doing to same.

The thing is, as long as you have what is a relatively skilled group of players, you can be successful like the Rangers have this season. You just need to set a tone, and an attitude. That is what Tortorella has done. Eye-popping talent isn't necessary. Just build from the net out, and add pieces around it.

I really like Hughson, personally. He's no Rosen, who, IMO, is one of the better PBP announces to grace the sport, but he calls the game well and I love his voice.

Before and instead of Kessel. I wish we had Skinner, but I'm happy we have Kessel.

Burke did everything he could to get JT - Cherry is really full of himself moreso than usual. Nothing worse than ,"I told ya so". Over and over and over.....
