It is probably good to have these guys in the minors to protect the skilled guys that are being groomed for the NHL.

Don't need or want your real prospects getting thumped all the time by veteran goons, or enforcers being groomed to play 6 minutes a night in the NHL.

Completely agree with you. Would love to find a way to dump Komo's contract and replace him with Fraser.

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.
I watched Rynnas in one of his starts last year where he didn't get the shutout (the other team got one across the line on a goal crash late in the game) where he made a ton of ridiculous saves. My better half and I were wishing he was playing net for the leafs that day.

I think the kid has real potential.

Former Leafs' prospect Josh Nicholls is WHL player of the week, Crescenzi had two assists last game and Brenner had a goal.

Devane TKO's Abney. Abney is a good heavyweight from Edmonton's farm.



Also another fight from earlier in the year.

Never know with these guys who don't play in the CHL. They just don't get the coverage required for someone like me to make a good opinion of him.

And my opinion is always right. After all, remember when I said Connor Brown was a steal?

I like him as well.

I remember from one of the redline reports just after the draft and Woodleif said he liked the pick and thought it was a good sleeper pick.

There was good reviews from the Leafs rookie camp as well back in July.


One to keep an eye on for sure.

Too bad there's no feasible way to watch these players other than the Leafs offerings.

I have a yankee doodle dish, and get college ames on Fox Sports and CBS College Sports, just haven't seen a UM-D game on yet. They usually show more toward the end of the season, when football is down, so I hope to see more of the college hockey soon. Should get to see a good bit of Tony C. After Christmas.

I'm curious. What current players in the NHL have taken Toninato's route?

What do you mean exactly? Going through the college route? If so, a lot of Americans go the college route. Parise is an example of someone who played in USHS (Minnesota High School league), then went to NCAA. Almost the same as Toninato except he skipped the USHL while Toninato is playing USHL hockey for a year.

Depends on where you're at, I guess. Found my guy through my dad. It's on sort of a card share system. Reliable, and gives you everything.

Dominic Toninato – LC – Duluth East H.S., 6’0.5” 165
Toninato is our best Minnesota prospect. He has finished playing high school hockey for Duluth East
this season. Dominic has good size, but a lanky frame which he will need to add a lot of s to. However,
we see a lot of similarities between him and a player like Derek Stepan. He has great hockey sense and
protects the puck very well so it is rarely exposed. He has a quick release and good shot and is able to
find the soft spots when he is in traffic. He is a Minnesota-Duluth commit.


Quotable: “This kids hockey sense is up with the best of them. I love his puck protection
skills, he understands how to use his body. This is a very talented kid with an overall solid
game who just needs to get stronger.” – Mark Edwards
