So we have Matthews, Marner and Kapanen coming off their ELC's at the same time? That sounds fun.

OT: Odds he gets some games on the Leafs at the end of the season?

I think it depends on a bunch of factors. I could see him stay down the entire year if we are in playoff contention and aren't sellers at the deadline. If we are out of it, and move on JVR or Bozak (and move Willy to center) I could see him getting the same 20 game stint Willy got last year, then entering camp pencilled in for a top 9 spot.

As for the ELC's I have a feeling in the case of Marner, Nylander and Matthews that we lock them up a full summer before they hit RFA. Particularly Matthews.

Glad to have him in our organization. With his shot, speed and IQ, you have to think he'll be a productive winger in the NHL.

No-one ever agrees with me, but I have mixed Kapanen and Matthews before.

I can sort of see it without the hair or anything for scale - they have a similar nose from a front profile

I guess they are a tad similar. I don't think I'd mix them up, though. They still have distinct differences in their facial features.

Kapanen is the bridge between Matthews and Määttä.

Leafs' "spare part", Kasperi Kapanen with another sick snipe:



Now, has 8 goals, 6 assists for 14 points in 13 games.

Yes, but for some teams kapanen would be a top 3 prospect.

To think just a few years ago, Kasperi would have been our best prospect by far (not a slight on Kapanen, just a testament to how far the leafs have come)

Technically he is our top prospect but I know what you mean

Seems like he's taken a step forward this year. Will likely get a cup of coffee with the club at the end of the year.

Well he jus 20 years old. Lots of time to develop. In about three years.

Marner, Kapanan, Brown right wing
Matthews Nylander, Kadri centre
Pretty nice

I think Kapanen is at his best on the LW, he actually has a good one-timer. I'd keep Marner on the LW but most good wingers can play there off-wing if needed.

He looks like such a different player from last year. Going to be a real weapon for the Leafs in the future. Really excited for next year, more so than this one. Kapanen coming up, with Leipsic likely as well. Off chance Nielsen/Dermott/Valiev. Will inject way more talent than what is already on the NHL team.

Definitely excited to see him play on the big club eventually. I only watched a few of his games over the past year, and from what I saw, he seems like he has adapted quite well to the pro game. Obviously the NHL is another step, but he has the abilities to make it translate.

similar situation with willy last year, nothing wrong in him playing pro NA hockey and being a leader, before he comes up in a sheltered role.

Marner is actually a righty as well so the LW would be his off wing. Pretty excited about what the leafs are building. Size will be a big area to focus on going forward on the offence

Let's him overcook a bit with the Marlies he's still a kid who's learning and he's not dominating the AHL quite to the point where he absolutely needs to be called up like we saw with Nylander.

Next year I think he could hop onto the 3rd line and began scoring his way up the line up.
