Considering the type of backwater brutes that steer NHL franchises, I absolutely believe Nylander dropped a few spots because of his pops and size. Michael may have been the Swedish Gretzky, but he's always had the rep of being soft.

You telling me good Canadian boys Michael Dal Colle and Jake Virtanen are more talented than this kid? Not a chance. Nylander might even be better than the two Sams by the time this 2014 draft class fully graduates.

:doh:

So my Dental Hygienist told me her Husband and Leaf fan woke up from a bad dream where Donald Trump made the Leafs have to send Mathews back to the US. We are just not comfortable with having nice things I guess.

Poor Leafs. What will they do without Nick Ritchie?

Well he does have over double the career NHL PIMS that Nylander has...so yeah there is that.

The three players taken before Nylander are Michael Dal Colle, Jake Virtanen, and Haydn Fleury all Canadians from the CHL.

He looks to be there already. Young players sure so things can change again, but as of now Nylander looks to be having the a bigger on ice impact than the Sams.

Oh and Mathews now has 39 goals and 67 pts and looks like he likely secured his Calder with is big end of season push he has been on.

Matthews played majority of his ice time against Keith, Seabrook, Kane.

84% possession. Even strength shot attempts were 29-3.

Yowza the Leafs are flying out of the gate. Grab some vet rentals for the playoff run and they're set.

The angle change as he pulled it in then released was something let alone the placement.

Go to one minute mark for replay from behind.

To expand on what Bosc said in Habs area, he is an odd mix of size combined with hand eye and shooting ability. Just feels like you don't often mix hand eye with big men.
