Long shot to make the team out of camp. who is your long shot player? Mine is Curtis Douglas
To me the fourth line center is completely open for whoever wants it I'm not gonna lie I have a soft spot for big players the last player I had high hopes for was brazeau. Douglas is different tho 6'9 200+ not afraid to mix it up and has the ability to put it in the net now I know one of his weaknesses is skating which is common in big players. I do not know what he's like in the face off circle but long story short if simmonds is not gonna be in the lineup everyday it might be best to have a kid like this in there.

Mine is Bobby McMann. Good sized Left shot that just put up a Marlies rookie record of 24 goals. Had something like 12 in his final 15 games. Goes to the net, high energy, can score and a good two way game. At 26 he is not a kid but his game keeps improving. An undrafted player that keeps overarching. Just signed a two-year entry level contract, so he is cheap and waiver exempt.

I also would offer up these two names as long shots.

McMann offers energy and size, an interesting player for sure.

2 or 3 months ago I suggested the Leafs give Douglas boxing lessons (only to improve the skill that is already there), continue to work on his quickness and show him Van Remesdyke (? ) videos about net front presence and deflections.

He’s my choice as well!

Was listening to Jonas seigal and Jame Mirtle on the leafs report taking about who should play on the 2nd line and a name they mentioned was engvall which got me thinking how much different is engvall to mikhyev engvall is bigger plays with more bite and has better hands where mikhyev was the better one defensively and faster. This would allow the leafs to push kerfoot down an interesting conversation none the less

I was banging the drum for Mikheyev and Engvall to be JT's wingers for much of last season. Then put Kerfoot and Willy with Kampf. I thought Mikheyev had more bite than Engvall though.
Engvall, JT and Willy may work. Although I worry because Engvall's work ethic can be inconsistent and having him play with Willy won't help that.


2.) 15 Sep 2022 17:34:34
I think both Engvall and Mikheyev were inconsistent with both frustrating me at times. I always wanted more!

Both have great speed and some ability to use the body but neither are power forwards.

Neither are top6 in my eyes; they are 3rd line contributors and solid PK players.

Keep Engvall away from Nylander for exactly those reasons.

I’m ready to give Robertson a real chance to play on L2. We NEED to see what we have. Let’s hope he stays healthy so we can find out if he’s an NHLer.

If it doesn’t work there are other Marlie options who might over-achieve. Let’s hope one or both work to our favour.

I agree Robertson has to play in the top 6 to be useful but I just don’t see it yet personally and with it being so crowded I think it’s gonna be tough for him to crack this roster.


4.) 16 Sep 2022 13:06:22
Agreed that Robertson needs to be put in a position to succeed. He just turned 21, so no need to rush him and he has injury history. I think he starts in the minors and Leafs look at him as a late season or playoff call up if he stays healthy and produces in the A.

Pretty clear with today's transaction seems like team defence will be something the leafs want in their bottom 6

Agreed.
Lots of options and consideration s for bottom 6.
This, to me, suggests Robertson and Steeves start in AHL.


2.) 10 Sep 2022 17:23:02
Trade Kerfoot and have Aston-Reese/ Robertson play NHL. Looks good to me.


3.) 10 Sep 2022 19:12:05
Idk if kerfoot is the play he seems like the most obvious but with him being able to play center that’s big for the pk as for Robertson I think he need more time the kids good with the puck but without it at times seems a bit lost let him play ahl games and be a 13-14 forward.


4.) 11 Sep 2022 02:14:48
@Goat I'm not sure if Robertson will ever be great without the puck. His size has a lot to do with that.

He can't play bottom 6 though. It would equivalent to putting wee willy on the 4th line. It just isn't his game.

This was the type of trade I was thinking about for sandin Toronto gets a good prospect that maybe a year or two away idk if veleno is the guy the leafs would want but I like the logic behind the trade.

I like the trade thought about formenton as well but with the leafs being over that cap by 1.5 they only save 1.2 which after putting up 18 goals last year formenton will probably want more money still doable trade just need more cap space to resign the asset they acquire.

I think having kerfoot for the season may have more value than trading him he can play any situation and can play center last I check none of the additions can play center and with jt out now might be wise to
Hold on to him with that being said he may become a prime trade asset at the deadline.
