    Not surprising. We still had another 2 years we could have waited out, but it would of been pointless. Realistically, he won't play with the Marlies this year, as Windsor is hosting the Memorial Cup, so even if they are knocked out in round 1, they will keep the team around to practice until the tournament.

    No. McKenzie talked about this a couple months ago and said his rights would still belong to us beyond this year.

    Anyways, no matter now.

    Should be interesting to see how he does with the Marlies next season. He's super talented but will need to keep developing his game.

    Good asset management. Too bad he didn't just stay 3-4 years in college though, that would have given us a free look see. As it stands he'll join the Marlies and they can keep a close watch on him. Great thing is he's a bonus in terms of what the big club needs.

    seems like a thing we're doing now, I think Bracco gets the same checking line minutes that Timashov/Johnsson/Kapanen got in their first years with the Marlies. He needs to learn defense anyway so he probably benefits greatly from it

    I kinda like Timashov's skillset more than Bracco's. He's like a poor man's Nylander.

    Shouldn't surprise anyone.

    He's had a great year (he dip in production post trade I think had a lot more to do with the new team's troubles than with him). He's also made a few visits to the Leafs facilities over the season too - so clearly management likes him.

    Not sure if he'll end up with The Lead or will eventually be a trade asset, but the kids skill has "boom" written all over it.

    Seems like the perfect type of prospect to send to a team struggling to kick off a rebuild.

    If they didn't sign him, where would he play? Could they sign him to a Marlies contract instead of an ELC or something?

    So much for all the speculation and rumours that he wasn't going to sign with us.

    What? He's great friends with Marner and Matthews. I don't think it was ever in doubt.

    Alright, we'll see what happens with him. I'm not very high on him at this point, despite his undeniable skillset. There are still a lot of holes in his game. I expect he'll need at least 2-3 years with the Marlies before getting a sniff of the NHL
