Feschuk: McClement finds Niche Killing Penalties

Saw this in the Star today found it an interesting read on McClement's work ethic and what players might need to do to make the NHL.

I don't pay too much attention to the OHL so I was surprised to find out he was drafted 2nd overall in the OHL.

Title of this article should read: "Mcclement finds niche killing penalties 5 years ago, takes a move to Toronto for the media to give him credit"

Such an original idea for an article, Feschuk.

I bet he called McClement's mom to ask about him

Yeah, not like he was brought here because of his PK prowess. Feschuk sucks.

Lol. Bang on

It's okay though, this place reminds me that not everyone watches hockey regularly.

First post got it.

Bravo.

It's sad NOW they are realizing this, anyone who watched the AVs would know this and how he has changed his game over the time in the NHL.

That was my initial thought too.

What's next?

As someone who is not as big a hockey fan as most people on Hf, I just found it interesting.

I would like to get more informed but poor internet and lack of tv options where I work limits the hockey I can watch.

Last year at the trade deadline I suggested on numerous occasions to try and pluck him (or Winnik) away from the Avs.

It's fun to see how it all worked out!

Feschuk must be brain dead. How on earth is this news? It's the reason that Burke signed him!

I'm serious when I say this, Toronto must have some of the worst writers in North America. Feschuk usually writes crap articles and this is no exception. HELLOOOO!! it's the reason why Burke signed him...Thanks for clueing in Feschuk you're only 9 months late.

No...I thought we signed him to be our top line center!?

Then he sucked and we made him kill penalties as punishment.

You are definitely not wrong.

Over the year there have been so many garbage articles. I think they have some quota of articles they have to write about every week...so they just spew anything they can.

Best writer in Toronto is probably Siegel and he's not even a journalist...just a beat reporter

IMO the best columnist is Mirtle.

The first thing I thought when I read the title was "In other news the sun is bright" like honestly...anyone who has half a brain and knows a little bit of hockey knows McClement has always been a great Pk'er. Feschuk please go back to basketball! He's totally out of his element writing about the Leafs and hockey in general. Too many garbage stories from him

I remember suggesting this as well, he's always been a respectable third liner who does what a third liner is supposed to do. It was an obvious signing and one of the few correct ones over the past several years that won't look horrid.

Exactly, as Leafs brought in PK specialist McClement to fix their ailing PK, and he has done exactly as designed.

So there is no surprise here.

Indeed

I was more going for Galiardi though tbh. I like that guy more so than Winnik in their system.

Very shocking. The guy brought in to help the PK is good at it .

Must be nice to BS an article and actually get paid for it.

Perhaps Feschuk's next article suggestion should be Orr/McLaren find Niche fighting.

This article is a lot more informative for the casual Leafs follower. It likely isn't news to any of us, but it serves a purpose. I like it.
