THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT THE TOP FIVE WILL BE BETTER NHL PLAYERS THAN ANYONE DRAFTED BELOW THEM. How can you people ignore this?

With the luck of the leafs, next year he gets high sticked in the eye and loses depth perception.

Now we'll draft Gaunce or some D which we don't have space for. This team is a complete failure.

Team failures:
They fail at making the Playoffs.
They fail at keeping a playoff spot after being in one for 2/3rds of the season.
They fail at tanking.
Their compete level sucks.

Team successes:
Consistently drafting in the 7-12 range.
Winning when it doesn't matter.
Showing excitement/energy for games that almost every fan wants them to lose.
Continually winning the last few games of the season and then saying that it's a sign for next year's playoff aspirations.

I wonder why GM's don't trade down for free. Would you?

If Jake Gardiner keeps playing like we've seen the past few games and improves, do the Leafs have a legitimate blue-chip prospect?

just stop, Please you're embarrassing. This team doesn't have a ****ing winning attitude if they did they wouldn't of ****ed up in February.


top 3 picks have a VERY good chance at becoming 1st line playersi'd say 90%+ top 10 picks not so much

People are too shortsighted to see that this team will continue to suck for 3 more seasons, I don't see any way we can make a major move to make this team any better.

You can't trade lead for gold, I think GM's will see that we always suck and so theres no point in picking any of our players up. Burke is gonna be hard pressed to trade any of our garbage away.

Be realistic, people. As abysmal as this team played in February and March, they're still professional hockey players. They aren't going to try to lose. They're going to try and win every game. Except for Tim Connolly.

So just be happy that we're going to get a top 10 pick and not barely not make the playoffs and get the 14th pick.

Time to forget this gong show and begin looking forward to the Jays, an organization that isn't being run by retards.

Luke Schenn was a pretty impressive rookie. Hopefully Carlyle doesn't wreck Gardiner like Wilson did Schenn.

Stop blaming the team for winning. They can't control it. They would be out of jobs. Blame Tampa for not winning against a scrub team.

Theres this thing called odds go look it up better. Tell me which odds are better for drafting a legit superstar. Top 5 or 6-10th. I'm not sure if you are just a troll or just......

Thanks again, *******s.

See you next year... Where my current feelings will be buried by my sheer love for the team/stupidity.
