Never said he was a top six scorer but he was a 1st round pick so he has some talent especially compared to ross johnston
- Upstate_isles

His point production doesn't suggest it. That's for sure.

Ok, and Johnston cant? I actually cant recall how well he skates...serious question.
- streaks

He is not the most fleet of foot and forget a sharp turn and coming out of it with any speed, hes a lot closer to john scott than tom wilson.......he could be john scott

Not attacking you, but you are comparing an AHL player to a NHL player.

Johnston is a replacement-level player and skates like one (that means poorly)

It wouldn’t surprise me to see him utilized in a similar role. Maroon worked with McDavid, and he was a 6th round plug before Chiarelli poached him from Anaheim.

Not saying it should happen, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Trotz tried it.

Ok, I don't disagree. Was just throwing it out there for some fun. Let's hope he gets something out of Johnston.

Thanks for the clarity. Again, was just throwing it out there because it's July and the past week has sucked.

I don't disagree. I think Wilson was on the fourth line when he blasted Vis.

I think Johnston paired with Barzal and Ebs would be one of the saddest things I've seen in a while.

Me neither, which is why I put it out there. Trotz likes these types of guys, which MAY shed light on why he was resigned. Or maybe he sucks and we are right back to where we've been the past 25 pages.

Probably, but I bet he can keep up with Lee and Bailey.

Well it ain’t as sad as watching Hall kick puppies, but yeah, it’d be pretty sad.

Komarov still has his Leaf goggles on it seems.

Yea I thought that too because it sounds so matter of fact, probably more of a shot but unless we can hear him say it we wont know.

No way of knowing without hearing his tone and how he said it. Could be saying they could win the cup or that they don't have a snowballs chance in hell of winning it. Who knows.
Sometimes it takes a while to get your head wrapped to a new location. I know when I switched companies it took a few weeks to adjust. I actually made a phone call and told the guy I was talking to that I was from the former company. This was after 3 weeks at the new one. Whoops!

We've been here before nobody, and I mean none of the players you mentioned are coming here willingly.

I didnt mind Komarov all that much just thought his contract was terrible but after this;

Igor Eronko

@IgorEronko
Leo Komarov: I’m sure the Maple Leafs are able to win the Stanley Cup with Tavares without any problems #TMLtalk

Not so sure anymore...

I read this as him being very sarcastic when I first saw it.

Wilson ain’t that talented. He only put up 35 points playing with Ov, Backstrom and Kuznetsov. I’m pretty sure Kassian could do the same thing playing with McDavid and Nuge.
- Wildschwein


Wilson was very very good in playoffs this year.
