Seriously though, I am looking forward to seeing him play with and against players with similar talent levels at the World Juniors. If the lockout lasts the entire season he should be ready next year with tourneys like these under his belt and a full season of hockey after that injury.

I think his "need to work on defense" is overblown a bit due to his glaring talent on offense. Everybody sees his attack game as his strength, and it is, but he is more than competent defensively and has good size and strength along the boards. A stint with the Marlies at the end of the season should help him adjust to dealing with bigger bodies at the next level. Did wonders for Gardiner.
I haven't watched a lot of him but I've seen him make bone headed moves near his own blue line. Dump it softly behind him off the boards to be picked up by his wingers, only to lose possession and be hemmed in hos own zone longer. He was trying to create a break away I'm sure but the smart thing would be to go off the boards there. He was about 10 ft in from the blue line there and had little option to skate it out past the opposing D. So he did a blind pass to the open space still within his own zone. I saw this twice, almost identical play. Youthful mistake I'm sure, trying to carry the heavy load on offense.

He's got some work to do for sure, but I think a kid of his character is more then up to the task. But he will be exposed for his bad habits for a season at times when he plays more mature pros. Not a knock on him really, as it's just a development thing. He'd do well to play with Gunnar for a while before playing Dion.

Not to put down Hamilton, but just to augment Rielly (in case any non-Leaf fans are lurking, so read my words carefully), but if Rielly were passing to Strome and Ritchie he would likely be close to 40 points. This in now way puts down Hamilton.

I am curious to see how hamilton and rielly compare in the WJCs. Wont be hard to do, they will be on the same pairing.

Is this a different Blacker than the one playing for the Marlies?

I'm high on Rielly, and that's about it. Every team in the NHL has NHL defenders, but very few have a Salming, Leetch, Niedermayer, or Lidstrom.

A core of rielly-phaneuf-gardiner seems like a good start to me. Plus you never know, one of finn, percy, granberg, etc could always surprise.

Josh Leivo with a goal and an assist (+1st star) against Percy and the Steelheads - Percy getting their only goal (an 2nd star).

Ryan Rupert with 2 goals including a late tying goal.

Marlies play a strong game, Rynnas with his third shutout in his fifth game.

I like the late round high school prospects we've got in Camarenesi, and Toninato. Toninato has put up better numbers in the USHL than Camarenesi did, so he could be a guy to watch next year in the NCAA.

im happy for the bus. i feel like he gets no respect here. he just quietly goes about his business (kind of like reimer). it would be interesting if one of burkes free wallets panned out in net.

3/5 shutouts is pretty impressive. playing well is one thing but in order to get a shutout you need a strong mental game as well imo. you need to have good concentration. it only takes one second of zoning out for the puck to go in the net.

He's starting to make some noise as our top goalie prospect. If he wasnt injured he could really have some good numbers this years. Just in the few games I have watched him, he looks very calm and composed in goal and making things look very effortless and easy.

I've said it since his first season here: no goalie in the system has higher potential. Big, athletic, and poised.

I kind of wish we could play Owuya and Rynnas more and develop them. I don't feel too excited about Scrivens and his dumb glove hand.

And he's huge compared to the Flames' Mighty Mouse, John Gaudreau who was a PPG last year in the NCAA.

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...php?pid=130893

John Gaudreau
Forward
Born Aug 13 1993 -- Carneys Point, NJ
5'6"

Tony Cameranesi
Center
Born Aug 12 1993 -- Maple Grove, MN
5'9"

I'll go with the larger one even if he's producing less.

Be nice if Reimer was able to play and get more ice.

Reimer is the 2nd. youngest of their pros.

Scrivens
Rynnas
Reimer
Owuya

Mark Fraser is exactly what the Leafs need on the back end. Can log safe minutes, character guy who can fill a heavy weight role.

And they will be on the same team for college which makes things even more interesting.

Leafs fans should be very comforted by the fact that guys like Fraser, Ranger and Holzer are in the minors ready to go at the drop of a hat.

All three would be a serious upgrade on Komisarek

Holzer was pencilled into the top 6 already.

Fraser however is not a NHL caliber d-man, he's a good guy to have in the minors because of his leadership and toughness but he's playing sheltered minutes in the AHL. How do you think he'd do in the NHL?
