Leafs training camp will be competitive

Assuming the Leafs make no more major moves, there are 30 players with a decent shot at making the leafs roster in training camp.

17 Forwards:

Sundin, Poni, Antropov, Steen, Wellwood, Stajan, Blake Tucker, Kilger are all guarantee’d roster spots.

Battaglia, Pohl, Bell, Devereaux, Williams have roster spots to lose. If they come to camp fit and ready to play, they’ll make the roster.

Gamache, Newbury, Ondrus, will be looking for roster spots, hoping one of the 5 above doesn’t show up ready to play.

10 Defenseman:

McCabe, Kaberle, Kubina, Gill, White, Colaiacovo are guarantee’s roster spots.

Belak holds that 7th spot, but its definetly his to lose.

Woz, Kronwall, harrison, Walser will be looking to take that 7th spot on the roster.

3 Goaltenders:

Toskala is guarantee’d a spot on the roster

raycroft should have the backup role, but Clemmenson has a slim chance at beating him out if he is awesome in training camp.

So overall the Leafs depth chart, as of right now, looks like this:

Poni-Sundin-Antropov
Tucker-Wellwood-Blake
Steen-Stajan-Devereaux
Kilger-Bell-Battaglia
Pohl-Williams

Kaberle-Kubina
McCabe-Colaiacovo
Gill-White
Belak

Toskala
Raycroft

MARLIES:

Gamache-Mitchel-Ling
Earl-Tlusty-Aubin
Murphy-Foster-Engelhardt
Corey-Newbury-Ondrus
Sagat

Stralman-Walser
Woz-Kronwall
Harrington-Sifers
Harrison-Oreskovic

Clemmenson
Pogge

The one thing I like about this team is depth. That Marlies team has about 8 guys I’d trust as a callup to the bigs. In goal, if one goalie is injured or playing poorly the other can take the reins. On defense 3 guys who can be 1-2 defensemen, and some nice role players and young players further down the depth chart. On offense, the Leafs now have 2 guys who can score on a consistent Basis(Tucker and Blake) plus 2 guys who can create quality scoring chances down the middle.

I think this team will take the Leafs to the 6th seed in the east. Injuries will come up(this is the leafs we’re talking about) but now I feel confident the Leafs can overcome them.

    Peca would be HUGE for the PK.

    But i swore i read something where he said he wouldn't go back, and than i heard they were talking again.

    I swear i remember him saying they'll never see him in a leaf jersey again.  I think it was on TFP.

  2. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    after that??? most teams don't have 2 centers who can score 70 points. Stajan and is 15 goals 40 points is above average 3rd liner, Pohl a very good 4th liner.

  3. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    Peca wants to be a leaf, but wants fair market value, which the leafs can't afford.

  4. leaffansareajoke says:

    I'll take the easy way out..

    It was rigged so he'd get more publicity and a bigger contract.

    Eh….

  5. leaffansareajoke says:

    I guess…

    But playing on 2nd and third lines is a lot easier than on the 1st line. 

    Back to your other comment, you said Steen or Wellwood was better than Carter.

    Wellwood, yes.  Steen, no.

  6. leaffansareajoke says:

    Ahh let me see if i can find the article…

    Nah wasn't able to.  No biggie i guess time will tell.

    He was rumored to want to go to buffalo but they had no interest.

  7. Superman4452 says:

    in response to his "I don't know if you really know anything about hockey" because i didnt watch paul maurice's latest press conference, i think its fair.

  8. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    In last 2 years

    Steen 157 games, 33 goals, 47 assists, -4, 68 PIM

    Carter 133 games, 37 goals, 42 assists, -7, 88 PIM

    Stats are nearly identical. however, I would still take Steen, because Steen went trough rifts where he couldn't do anything. Once he hits consistency he should do much better. Plus he's more versatile, can play the wing, and owns lots of valuable SEL experience. Both can kill penalties, not well though.

  9. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    Its here

    http://www.thefourthperiod.com/news/buf070720.html

    but we can’t use it because its not an NHL official article.

  10. the_word says:

    Peca told the Leafs he'd sign a one year 1.25 million contract according to the Toronto Star.  That seems like a home town discount to me.

  11. leaffansareajoke says:

    I'll take Carter, because last year was a terrible year.

    Still though, our bias is obvious =)

  12. leaffansareajoke says:

    Nice try, but its not a stat.

    Rumors aren't reported by the NHL, so websites such as this site and TFP and even Hockeybuzz can be sited as a source.

    Stats must come from a hockey source. 

    Besides, i don't see any stat listing on NHL.com for shots from 15 feet away, who would check those stats if the NHL doesn't even track them?

  13. leaffansareajoke says:

    Lets see… Wingers and Centers.

    Quality D-men.

    Think that about covers everything…

    3 top pair d-men?  who the hell would that be other than Kaberle?

  14. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    the NHL DOES track them. the NHL keeps documented play by play reports, documenting completed passes, offsides, shots…. anything you can think of. One of those things is shots. every shot is put into a distance catagory(0-5 feet, 10-15, so on so forth), AND a quadrant category(high right, high left…). and every shot is marked as a save or a goal.

    this becomes very usefull for coaching offense, so you can see stuff like, oh steen can't get the puck high unless he's 20+ feet away, ok we'll drill him on shooting close in high shots. stuff like that.

  15. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    Well carter would be better on Phiily because he's better at the center position than Steen. and Steen is more usefull to the leafs because of his versitility.
