    https://www.thesportster.com/hockey/15-draft-mistakes-the-toronto-maple-leafs-should-still-be-embarrassed-about/14/?v=8 THE ENTIRE 1ST ROUND OF THE 1989 DRAFT via celebrityhockeyclassics.com If there’s one draft the Maple Leafs could go back in time and select all over again, hands down, it would be 1989, and more specifically, that entire first round. After some wheeling and dealing, the Leafs owned not one and not two, but three selections in that year’s opening round and what should have been a very bright future with all the inbound young talent. Unfortunately, that talent never materialized. The Leafs picked 3rd, 12th and 21st in the overall, taking forwards Scott Thornton and Rob Pearson and defenseman Steve Bancroft respectively. Altogether, those three players combined played 225 games for Toronto, scoring just 95 points. In fact, Bancroft only played in six NHL games his entire career. Oh, and the guys in that same draft the Leafs could have picked? Just some no-namers like Sergei Fedorov, Pavel Bure, Nicklas Lidstrom, Adam Foote.

    Dylan Larkin Signs ($6.1M x 5 yrs)

    They'll put up all the smoke and mirrors for camp, but he won't make it through pre-season. I believe His career is over.

    Zetterberg & Fedorov VS Yzerman and Datsyuk

    No, I'm talking 120 point Fedorov and 97 point Datsyuk. Fedorov was not in his prime when he played with Datsyuk. Datsyuk was a 3rd liner when Fedorov left. So, no, neither were in their primes.

    Imagine if we had Feds and Dats both at their prime.

    2019 Draft

    If we cannot get Jack Hughes, absolutely we could use this guy! I think that the order I prefer is of those 5 is: Hughes, Broberg, Kakko, Cozens, Podkolzin. Going to be real interesting to see how things change by June! But if we fall between 5-10 again, Alex Newhook would be a great choice!

    ...and? He'll be 29 before this season starts IN OCTOBER, then he'll be 30 before next season starts IN OCTOBER 2019, which is what I said. Test your math 2019-1989? Ya, equals 30. PLUS the term "hometown discount" doesn't only apply to players born in the area, it is, a lot of times applied to players that were drafted by a team, brought up through their system and still play for the team when they become a UFA. Lidstrom gave us hometown discounts all the time.

    Good on him. I'm paying my Franchise player, current #1 center and future Captain $6.1M, there is no way in snowville that I am giving Nyquist anywhere near $5M. Using that logic, Mantha should be at $4.8M and AA at $3.3M, Helm should have to give money back.

    Plus he'll be 30 at the start of next season. $5M, nah....pass. Forget the whole idea I brought up.

    Nyquist has been paid handsomely and hasn't really earned it. Factoring in a "hometown" discount, I don't think $3.5M is too little. Kids get paid after they prove it. This is not the Edmonton Oilers. In no way is $3.5M peanuts. But if some team wants to give a player $5M who can barely score 20 goals, then more power to them. No thank you here. Nyquist at $3.5M Good, Nyquist at $5M Bowel Inducing. Loose ones at that!
