For all the heat that Brian Burke has taken for the big club, and rightfully so, he has made up for it in droves with what has happened with the AHL club. In a good percentage of his trade, he has aquired the other teams number one draft selection from a previous year. The marlies have many first round picks.
Please list these young guys who in 3 years will take the NHL by storm. You want an educated reponse to a comment like "Leafs win Eastern Conference in 3 years you heard it here first".
Still have to let me know how having good AHL for a year translates into a much better team in NHL.
Difference between Oilers and Leafs is we draft talent and our ownership wont pay to keep them around and Leafs draft garbage and have all the money in the world.
