No one needs and or wants your wake up call!!
Actually Leaf Lander is not a "Leaf hater". What we need less of is homers like yourself that overrate sub par or unproven talent. Spencer Abbott? Who cares. Do you honestly sit there and overrate unproven talent like this kid Spencer? Thinking he can make an impact? You should be skeptical of these "free wallets" because 99% of the time they never go anywhere. Let's see Burke draft a franchise player this June. Then we're talking.

Even if he doesnt make the Leafs, appears like he could be a nice addition for the Marlies.

Hopefully he's a Bozak and not a Hanson/Irwin, etc.

Cue the Bozak haters. Sure he's not a 1st line C, but he's an NHLer.
bozak is playing in over his head on the 1st line and people still give him **** all the time. free wallets.... why everyone hatin

Not that I'm making any sort of comparison (Nieuwendyk was a 1st round draft pick), but the NCAA has produced players in the past. Nobody is expecting this kid (if he signs with us) to come in and be the next Gretzky. If he has the potential to become a solid, 2nd liner, what's the issue?

He has great skill and tons of smarts. Wouldn't hurt to sign him at all. He's probably got a great shot at the Hobey Baker.

you don't think most people realize this. No one said he was going to come in here and be a savior but signing someone for free who has potential to get better is never a bad move imo any how.

Adding a prospect without relinquishing any assets, other than money, has somehow caused individuals to be angry. I understand you're jaded. Go hug somebody, or if need be, call a suicide hotline.

I never rate anyone! I only comment on what I see and sometimes comment on information I read from pros! That is all!

I'm completely skeptical and most certainly not getting my hopes up! If someone else wants to get their hopes up, it's not my job to squash them like so many people here!

What is so ******* wrong with people having hope as a Leafs fan? Why do people go so far out of their way to crush every last glimmer of it! A free hometown prospect that shows some promising signs and costs us nothing if it doesn't work is a great thing! But whatever, that's just the homer in me!

Only potential franchise player in the draft is Yukapov. I guess you're be waiting a long time then.

The top 10 in this draft is the strongest in years.

Burke's record hasnt been awful

Bozak ~ NHLer
Irwin ~ Scrub
Hanson ~ Scrub
Scrivens ~ Top 3 AHL goalie, NHL potential

yeah where have we heard this before. Leafs should be lucky if some of them develop into a 1st line player or top pairing defencemen.

There is only one guarantee! He will 100% not turn out for the leafs if they let him walk.

This board is ****ing atrocious for discussing anything now. Every thread is 4 or 5 of the same guys spewing the same garbage with their "O woe is me" shtick.

Seriously, if you want to go ***** about the Leafs go to the main board. Stop ruining it for everyone else.

Mods, shouldn't you be doing something about this?

Looks interesting, hopefully he doesn't end up like Christian Hanson, Brayden Irwin, Tyler Brenner, etc.

Half the time it is a Mod


Spencer Abbott is a nice addition, I don't expect a ton from him, but he does have some upside and it would be smart to grab him because of it.
