Something to look forward to ...



"The future is a convenient place for dreams."
- Anatole France

I eagerly await Nazem Kadri's permanent stay in Toronto, with a different Maple Leaf on his sweater.

Don't you?

Something great, I love how this kid plays. We desperately need that kind of passion and leadership. A leader.....something we don't have.

Sitting behind the Penalty box for the Pens Leafs game tonight, any ideas on signage

Kadri looks like he has the chance to be something very special. The Leafs are very much in need of what hopefully will be a talented and tough player. I'm looking forward to see how Kadri stands up to some tougher competition in this tournament. It's awesome to be able to see someone that you know is going to be an important piece in order for the Leafs to be successful, and see him develop on such a big stage.

@ Loosh: That was one helluva body check he threw. That was better than the goals.

@ Reich916: How about ... "Playoffs!!1"

@ Mattt: I agree, it's fun to watch Kadri play in this tournament. Can't remember the last time a Leafs's forward prospect was playing on the first line for Canada at this tourney.

@ Anon: I should have been more particular; I meant a high-profile Leafs's forward prospect. DiDomenico was drafted 164th overall. Kadri's the highest-drafted Leafs forward since Pearson back in 1989. Much different ceilings.

Watch Jerry D'Amigo from the US team. I had him in my top 50 at Draft day last year and was shocked to see him drop to the 7th round where Toronto nabbed him.

Shocked that D'Amigo went to the Leafs in the 7th as well. At the under 18 he had a KILLER tourney and for 5'11, tips in at a welcome 2 bills. This kid is gonna turn out to be one of the better Leaf picks in recent times. He's having a really good freshman year at Rensselelaer Polytechnic Institute: 5 goals, 9 assists in 14 games. 2 on the PP and 3 game winners....our type of player.
