Saw on Sportsnet they were doing a ranking of the value of currently rostered Leafs players, and where Nylander fit. I think the consensus was 6th. Was thinking, what would be your rank of the top 10 currently rostered Sabres players by long-term value? As if you were starting a new team today. Not easy to do, I don't think. I'd go:

1. Dahlin

2. Eichel

3. Skinner

4. Mittelstadt

5. Ristolainen

6. Reinhart

7. Ullmark

8. McCabe

9. Sheary

10. Thompson

---

I think the biggest gap is after 6, similarly to Toronto. 

Going strictly LT (3+ seasons, & ideally 6+):

1. Dahlin

1A. Eichel

3. Mittelstadt

4. Skinner

5. Ristolainen

5A. Reinhart

7. Ullmark

8. McCabe

8A. Pilut

10. Thompson.

& With 4 D in the top 9, maybe they protect 4 & 4.

And Nylander, Olofsson, Smith, Sheary, Guhle, or Borgen could possibly be 10; but I'll stick w/ Tage in that slot for now.

I kinda like what we are paying our 6th ranked asset vs what the Leafs are paying theirs...

(I know, we still have a ways to go to catch them overall)

My list:

1. Dahlin

2. Eichel

3. Mittelstadt

4. Risto

5. Reinhart

6. Skinner

7. Pilut

8. Ullmark

9. Thompson

10. McCabe

 

Mittelstadt is still all perception but hopefully that turns to reality sooner rather than later. Skinner is “overrated” in that he’s an incredible goal scorer and skater and can do literally nothing else. Reinhart, long-term, is the better player. As is Risto (and d > wing in terms of value).

Which is infinitely worse as Miller is not a general POS

Nope.  Just average.

Can someone get my coat, please?  I think I better leave now.  Thanks.

Watching the Canes@Ducks game.  For some reason Carolina is wearing their home reds and Anaheim are wearing their black jerseys.  Tough to watch

That sounds awesome. Wish there were way more color on color games. The Canes are on a five-game road trip and will apparently wear red in all five games.

It's the first time in some 3 decades I believe. Can't seem to find the exact year

Also

Duchene to the IR

And the Blackhawks are 3-14-3 in their last 20

So, it seems that they may have fires the wrong guy, or not enough guys.

Their gm is bad at cap management.

Matt Duchene Out for weeks with a groin injury. Placed on IR. 

 

HE suffered a groin injury?  That doesn't exactly narrow it down, now does it.

Probably but they sold their souls to win cups. I hope we get the chance to witness the same.

4. Hutton

5. Risto 

6. Ullmark 

7. Sam

8. Mitts 

9. McCabe

10. Pilut

Had to put both goalies because that win streak does not happen with Lehner or the like.

Pilut has played well in short time and IMO should stay.

TBH I only put Mitts because other people did but right now I could see Sheary taking his place on the list.

What's their lead in the sens and red wings? Let's focus on relevant things.

8 points and 10 on the last place Florida. A couple wins this week would be nice.
