According to www.mynhldraft.com (prior to the NHL's release), Larsson is slated to go at #4 - right where the
Leafs Bruins would pick were the draft held today. Perhaps the NHL & mynhldraft are making a nice little prognostication and suggesting the Leaf Bruins will be picking Larsson first overall?
Other stuff for our rapidly decreasing post frequency:
Kovalev out with a knee injury which is suspected to have occurred several games ago. May this be the guy's built in excuse for doing little on ice? Perhaps it's why Clouston hasn't benched him.
Mike Fisher is apparently plaing with an injury (as is Alfie, but he's the man of steel), but Fish should play against the fellow lottery pick
Jim O'Brien has been called up to fill Kovalev's skates. So if he stands on a faceoff dot and does fuck all, it will have been a seamless transition.
Don Brennan asks a good question (yes.... I wrote that). "Why not [AHL leading scorer] (Corey) Locke?"
Speaking of balls, it's go time.
