One more new face for Leafs tonight vs. Caps -Jeff Hamilton

Jeff Hamilton, a Leaf until the end of the season...

Pardon my French.. but ****ING LOL.

Quote:
WASHINGTON– The Maple Leafs have bought the contract of forward Jeff Hamilton from the AHL's Chicago Wolves and the forward will play tonight when the Toronto visits the Washington Capitals.

Hamilton's most recent NHL time came when he played 58 games last season with the Carolina Hurricanes, scoring nine goals. Hamilton played 70 games with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2006-07 and scored 18 goals and 39 points.

good for Jeff... he's a servicable 3rd or 4th liner on a bad team, glad he's getting another crack...
should be fun to watch him tonight, I bet he's pumped to be bag in the nhl...



edit: hahah, I meant "back" not bag... ooops..

I thought he would've made a good signing the year he went to Carolina... but kinda glad the Leafs didn't fork over the 2 mil (or whatever it was) for him.

Congratulations, Jeff!

Might be good to put his name in the thread title.

I believe he's known as a powerplay specialist. Pretty sure both Carolina and Chicago used him there. The issues with him have been playing 5 on 5.

Jeff Hamilton is the kind of player I expect would not fit in Burke's top-6 or bottom-6.

He's just a stop-gap for the rest of the season. Just filling a roster spot without using up one of the four recalls left.

Curous how they do this. Did he not have to clear waivers or re-call waivers?

Why are we the only rebuilding team ever that doesn't get to see our top prospects play with the big team when they're dominating the minor leagues?

Hey, this guy once scored 39 points. 39 points! That's more than 27, why didn't we toss a 3rd round pick somewhere to get this guy?

Well, were not the first team to leave young guys to dominate in the AHL. These guys will get their chance. They can have a very productive run with the Marlies and be full of piss and vinegar when they get to training camp.

Anyway, with the 3 non=platyers acquired via trade and Jeff Hamilton, what does that leave the Leafs with for contract spots. I believe we were at 47 a few weeks ago, 4 guys out (Bell, Antropov, moore and Petiot) 3 non-playing guys in, Hamilton in leaving us 3 pro-contracts?

Tlusty will probably be see some NHL time, but I think it's a combination of letting him run with the confidence he has in the AHL, and just getting a stop-gap player for the big club. Chances are Tlusty would be down with the Marlies for the Calder run anyways.

I think the Leafs identify that Tlusty is dominating down there, and has some solid chemistry with Stapleton and Battaglia (which is important to have going into the playoffs). May as well let him continue doing what he's doing and gaining that confidence. Over-rypen the player as they call it.

This is a very good development year for Tlusty after he started off slowly. His play in the post-season will be something interesting to watch.

Agree !! Leafs are ripped for rushing players then they are ripped for developing players. Ya just can't win with some posters.

Great, he is only 32 years old.

Maybe Burke want to see him for the U.S. Olympic team

not sure if you can find any team that;s ever kept a 20 year old kid in the minors after scoring 34 points in 15 games.

This roster spot could have been given to Jeremy Williams.. why bring in a 32 yr old guy to fill in when you can get one of your own kids in.

We get 4 call ups. Ondrus is one - we have 3 left.

I think it's about time Tlusty & Stalman are left in the Marlies ... let them play big minutes, gain tons of confidence, and make their 'learning' mistakes / develop their game in front of the pathetically sparse crowd of 1200 at Ricoh instead of 19,000 at a Leafs game + countless and on TV and posters who want to discuss every mistake and compare them to other players in totally different situations.

It's worked time and again for teams like Detroit, Anaheim, and San Jose - why wouldn't we do it?

You sure the Ondrus call-up counts - isn't he just an injury replacement for Hagman?

They don't leave prospects down there that score 34 points in 15 games.

Well I heard it before how Burke likes his top prospects to dominate there respective leagues before letting them play in the NHL. So I can see the reason Tlusty is in the minors for the time being. However whats the point of bringing in Hamilton when you can just use Jeremy Williams to replace either Antropov or Moore.

This was probably done because teams only have 4 call ups.

I had forgotten about the call-up limit. It's hard to imagine Pogge getting any more games if Tlusty and Stapleton and/or Strahlman are called up.
