The Leafs might be the younest team in the league, but they don't have the prospects in the system that are going to turn this around. They don't have a future #1 center in the system. We all know how good of a job Burke has done finding one through UFAs or trades in the 5 years he's been here, so I doubt that changes. To judge Burke's drafting this early on is ignorant? Do we have to wait a decade before we can debate it?
Look at the drafts the Leafs have been in and their draft position and tell me what #1 center prospect they could have had. I want you to do that right now and don't mention the Seguin deal because that's horse crap.
Look at all the drafts and where we stood and I want you to note down players who would be making a difference right now prospect wise. If you can find some i'll credit you.
I looked back to 2006 and the only ones I saw were Cody Hodgson who is not a #1 center and Chris Kreider who was drafted the same year as Kadri just later in the round.
