There's a young English guy who plays for Dundee Stars in the British Elite League has been invited over to this by Chicago. Paul Swindlehurst. Normally I'd have a watch if I can for the Leafs games but I'll be interested to see how he gets on also.
I'd love to see a Tony Hand-type player come over and have success in the NHL. This guys stats are pretty ho-hum though even for his level, wonder what Chicago sees in him.

On a side note, does anyone really believe this report? Does anyone think that the NHL will have decided to go into cities that don't have arenas like Seattle and Toronto? Or that they'd expand without a public bidding process?
I'm sure expansion talks are happening and that they will come to fruition within the next few years, but yeah this specific report as it was stated means nothing to me. Especially since nobody has really backed up the so-so source.

Only one woman on the entire team.
Three, but yeah certainly not a diverse bunch there.

Just noticed Kevin Weekes and Andi Petrillo aren't on that list. That's really too bad. Picking P.J. Stock over Weekes is insane.

I'd just absolutely love to see some sort of assessment or report card Sportsnet made of Healy. It really seems like nobody, and I mean nobody, likes the guy.
Nice to see Johnson and Pang get picked up. They did good work at TSN.

why isnt Percy there or is he pro at two Marlies years?
Yeah, I'd imagine the Leafs just didn't feel he'd benefit from participating.

Anyone know if the games will be broadcast somewhere?
LeafsTV used to do it, right?
Last year RogersTV carried them live and LeafsTV showed them the next day or something like that.

Should be a good chance to check out Nylander.
A lot of possible Marlies on that list too. Half the defence, all three goalies. Biggs, Broll, Brown, Leivo, Nylander, the Ruperts.

I'm with you BWB. I think we're going to see continued progression from Kadri. It wouldn't shock me to see him flirt with 70+ points this season.
I think that could happen, but he'll need to get top unit PP time on a regular basis.

I can think of a few reasons for Sweden just like I can think of some for the AHL but I don't really know the young man and we'll have to wait and see what he shows at camp, personally I'm just looking at hedging the entry level bet at this point, at least until I know more, potentially better bang for the buck and such.
There won't be any difference regarding his ELC though if he plays in the AHL as opposed to the SEL. Well, except for that he'll be available to the Leafs if he stays in NA.

Maybe one of these teams will take Clarkson in the expansion draft!

I kind of hope he goes back to Sweden, good development league and the Leafs would save a year on his ELC.
If he plays in the AHL his contract would still slide as long as he doesn't play 10 or more games with the Leafs. So he could possibly be playing professional hockey in NA for 4 (or maybe even 5) years on his ELC.
