Colborne has more upside than Gauthier IMO, lol.

You won't see most people defending Gauthier, stupid low upside pick.

If your not gonna explain yourself and just throw around garbage and make yourself look like a fool don't even comment.
May I have the lottery numbers for next week please? You seem to be able to see the future where Reilly is better than Galchenyuk for sure.

Galchenyuk > Rielly Gauthier > McCarron

I think Galchenyuk and McCarron are the better pair

I don't have a problem with the Gauthier pick, it was a calculated risk due to his size just like MTL's pick at 25. I do however laugh at someone saying he'll be better than a #3 pick who was an absolute stud in the NHL as an 18 year old. Just silly at this point, and too many things would have to happen for it to be true.

Rielly who knows, for me he just reminds me of a better skating Mike Green. He's a good player and can be a spectacular player but he's not going to be a shut down #1 who can be leaned on in tight games. Toronto will still need that big minute eater in the future like they do now.

Anyways you're right, it's Galchenyuk over any of these guys combined.
Gauthier was a top 5 skater from the combine? This surprises me, there are a couple dozen players I would put ahead of him.

It's hilarious how many Leafs fans misinterpreted this post. OP isn't referring to Rielly in this sentence, he's talking about Gauthier. Notice how he says at the end that the player doesn't make up the difference between Galchenyuk and Rielly? Yeah, that would be Gauthier.

Why is nearly every thread with anything leafs related or not even gets hijacked by mean spirited posters, seriously, at this time only galy has played nhl minutes, leafs could win this poll when those 2 players get to play, but for now how can anyone say for sure who wins this.Wow

Just because your team had zero offensive depth doesn't mean Galchenyuk is better.

Lol what the **** are you talking about? They finished 4th in the NHL in goals, mainly due to having three offensive lines that could contribute with Galchenyuk being a big part of that.

Montreal was 4th in the NHL in G/G, how is that no offensive depth when they also had no player in the top 30 for scoring? By definition I would say that's the very ideology of depth scoring.

Rielly isnt that great. Leaf fans over rate him. He may make the NHL one day, but last year he couldnt keep up in the AHL.

Leaf fans also over rate gauthier. He has 3rd line potential.

Montreal duo easily, and I'm not even huge on Gally.

In two years I'll be laughing at the ridiculous expectations Leaf fans had for Rielly. Rielly is a good prospect and will be a good top 4 defenseman, but Leaf fans are making it seem like he'll automatically become a #1 defenseman and potential Norris winner. Same **** was said about Gardiner last summer and this year he couldn't crack a defense that had Mike Kostka playing 22 minutes a game.

Anyone who has watched Rielly play would realize the kind of potential that he has. He can be like a Letang in a few years.

D-men take longer to develop and so comparing Gally, and making statements like "gally has made the nhl therefore he's way better" is extremely premature. I'm sure all the guys way back in the day who called Subban a "good prospect and will be a good top 4 defenseman" and not capable of winning a Norris look pretty silly right now. Rielly has a special skillset, and so does Jake Gardiner, capping their potential right now at 23 years old and 19 years old is far more premature.

And the reason Jake was unable to make the club was because he had a concussion and after he was cleared he had bad condition and played very timid. When he got back into grove in the playoffs Randy couldn't keep him off the ice.

Galchenyuk will be a good top 6 center

Gauthier is the best backchecker in the draft and will most likely work his way up from the 4th line to 2nd line center during his career. Reilly is potentially our #1 D-man in the future.

Galchenyuk might be the better than Gauthier but he won't be better than Reilly if anything they are equal. And McArron isn't even as good as Gauthier.
Only a true blind homer would write "Gally might be better than Gauthier". I think it's really close. Not a fan of Gauthier at all, but I am in love with Rielly.

You know so much about these prospects that you can't even spell the names properly.

"Rushing" would apply to Grigorenko.

Rielly - Galchenyuk have high end potential.

McCarron - Gauthier are players that seem to be projected to be bottom 6ers at this point...
