You said Burke addressed the issue, so I was wondering which players addressed it. We both know prospects are prospects and don't address any NHL issues.

Great to hear! Now you can never again say that Grabovski is soft. Progress!

I'm talking the additions of guys like Rielly, Finn and Percy. While prospects don't have an immediate impact on NHL issues, we have set ourselves up to have a very mobile blue line for years to come.

I'm loving the pick! Morgan is a beast. Just wondering though, what is his shot like? On pretty much all the footage I've seen of him, he rarely if ever blasts it from the point.

That is one thing I'd like to see from him. Another is improve the defensive game.

From what I've seen/read, he's not a shooting defenseman but can shoot it well. Still very much a set up guy for a Phaneuf-type with the big cannon.

As for his defensive game, I think he is better than people realize. Good stick and obviously his skating can bail out most misreads. He's not exactly a stalwart back there like say Ryan Murray, but he's not just a 4th forward, like say Karlsson, out there either.

I think they should send him to Sweden to play in the SEL for a year.

Then the Leafs could have the next Lidstrom.

I see my darkhorse Greg Chase scored the shootout winner ... again.

Calgary Herald has a write up on the game.

Quote:
Rielly, who missed the majority of the 2011-12 season with a knee injury, was dangerous all night long, showing exactly why the Toronto Maple Leafs made him the fifth-overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft last June.
Three stars:

Brendan Hurley
Morgan Rielly
Chris Dreidger

Goal of the game: Warriors D Morgan Rielly walked off the side boards into the slot and fed a pass to a waiting Carter Hansen.

I'm not sure if the other team is just awful or if Rielly is that good. Maybe he should play pro somewhere instead of against kids.

Combination of both IMO. The dipsy-doodling in the opponents end that frequently obviously won't happen in the NHL, but he's definitely capable of it.

He's that good.

He looks like he plays D and Forward. May as-well get some pads on him too...

He should just be our #1c.

Just kidding, kid looks gnarley

He is simply that good.

I have watched him do this since his Major Bantam year....this video shows his defensive ability as well....he simply can skate his team out of trouble....

The people who have not watched him play more than a few times live simply do not understand just how good he is....in both ends of the ice.

As a Leaf fan I was praying that we selected him as he is a type of player that does not come along all that often, had he not been hurt we never would have got him as he would have been selected by Edmonton in my opinion.

He was unbelievable in the clip shown. At the same time, I do not think those moves will work very well in the pros. His skill level is quite obvious. He looks like he could be a forward with those skills
