The Leafs lost because they couldn't win battles in the offensive zone, not because Ottawa's young players are so much better.
Big and hard working usually means victory, so we were out worked and out coached.

He is 20 so looks like he's headed for the Marlies next year. Noticed he's listed 6'2 196 pounds
He's a UFA, we don't have his rights any more.

So if you had to choose, you would take the Sens roster from last night over the Leafs roster?

According to NHL.com Kadri had 0 turn overs and 1 takeaway (same for Zibanejab).

Giveaway stats are as useless as +/- without any further analyze. Some places call a giveaway/takeaway for something another place dont call. I have watched games when I have seen Kessel 2 or 3 times skate in to the offensive zone, stop and make a pass along the blue line to no one but the other team who counter attack. Then when I check the official states, he have 0 giveaways.

The same reason I am not super interested in RoR who had over 100 takeaways last season seeing as right now they have 3 players in the top 30 for takeaways so clearly the rumor about the one keeping track of this in Colorado is a bit trigger happy seem to be true.

It is the same with hits btw.

Biggs # 24 tonight seems to be a shoe for 30 goals...even missing time for Jr's

Thats a long way from the 10 goals one of the scouting programs predicted for his OHL year

Even after three years in the minors, Kadri still has more skill in his one finger than Zibinejad has in his entire body.

Does anyone know what happened to Sondre Olden?
Did he give up? Was he given up on?

Ya we didnt sign him so he is eligible to enter the draft again (i think?) or sign with another team. I remember when we didnt sign him there was an article that one of the leafs mgmt said even though they didnt sign him they were still keeping a close eye on him to see how he progresses and could still be signed.. that was a year ago so im not sure we will see him in our system.

He went back to Oslo, Norway. One of those boom and bust players, to early to tell what he is. Only 20 and it might take 2-3 before he have filled out and becomes a productive pro.
I hope a SEL team will take a chance on him.

If I were a Center, I would absolutely love to play between these 2 kids.
Should be interesting to see how the Marlies shape up next year.
Biggs, Percy, Leivo, Broll and MacWilliam should make it, and players such as McKegg, Ross, Devane, should also be given expanded roll. I really like Scott Sabourin of the Generals, undrafted could be signed as a Free Agent, just not sure if there is a spot for him on the Marlies. Team should be younger and tougher, next year.

I think, because of the infusion of youth, that they may struggle in the standings some, but the development of the young guys is what's important, and with Eakins at the helm, you have to feel good about that situation.

No birdie, big and hard working usually means 4th liner.
Skill and hard work is usually victory.

I would argue Leivo has surpassed Biggs at this moment in time.

Didnt watch the whole game yesterday, but Colborne looked much better for the Marlies than he did earlier in the season. Skating and mobility seemed much better. Gardiner looked to be over doing it a bit, consistently jumping into the rush, but might be trying too hard to impress. D'Amigo scored a highlight goal, hoping it helps his confidence.

I mentioned in the Marlies thread that I thought Joe looked better with added responsibility, and it seems like when all of the guys were called up to the big club, he has really stepped up, and started producing like he should. He may just be one of those guys that needs that urgency and responsibility on his shoulders.

I'm a long way from declaring him a bust, as most reasonable people should be. He's incredibly smart on the ice, and anticipates well. His vision and IQ combo make him a lethal weapon with the right linemates. He's got trees for legs, and needs to continue to work with Underhill on his stride and explosiveness, and when he improves those, he'll be an NHL regular, I think. Great size, IQ up there with the best of them, great hands, and a good kid. Great combination.

Completely agree with you. In fact, I think he doesnt make NHL as an "OK" player, he either makes it as a really good player or not at all. He looks much quicker on his skates this year, but still has to improve his strength. ONce he does that, I'm sure you will see a much more confident player. To me, he is one of those players you have to be patient with, as there could be very high rewards. Bob McGill consistenly compares him to Adam Creighton, former Chicago Blackhawk player.
