    Best and worst skaters in Leafs History to present .....

    here’s a reprieve of some downer Posts including my own for a bit of fun ..

    Marshy reminded me of how bad of a skater he was ( sorry Marshy ) but how great of a team player as well ...

    it got me thinking about some really poor skaters that the leafs have had in their history and then I thought of some of the terrific skaters we’ve had as well ..

    Can you think of some players that fall into each of these categories ?

    here’s some of mine for now


    Best

    Courtnall
    Marner
    Rielly
    Dave Keon


    Worst
    Marshy ( Sorry ) lol
    Dave Dunn
    Dave Hutchinson
    Dan Maloney
    Teeder Kennedy
    George Armstrong


    I’ll add more as I think of them

    Kappy is best of this group but Keon could do it all. Keon could turn in a phone booth like Marner and Keon could outrace you down the ice like Kappy. We have never had anyone that I have seen who could do both at a league best level except Keon. Many have him as best Leaf ever because of his skating alone.

    I certainly cannot disagree
    Teeder wasn’t a great skater at all , but man could he compete and was a winner and a leader
    Our sons namesake
    Keon Kennedy Leaf then last name ...

    Jason Allison says hi, and he will be here soon, just lumbering up the ice.

    Kudos! Very few people even know the name Val James.

    I watched him playing in Moncton for the Saints. Sat there the whole game with a really PO'd look on his face. Literally never played a single shift until later in the 3rd when he gets a shoulder tap, steps on the ice and within seconds is in a scrap.

    That was his whole night! LOL

    Jason Allison has got to be among the worst. The guy always looked like he forgot to take his skate guards off before he stepped onto the ice.

    Teeder I did not see but my dad always said he was the warrior of all Leaf hockey warriors. He supposedly could lift team with skill and make it happen whatever it took whatever the situation --- a winner. A leader extraordinaire. He always says it is what the Leafs are missing now no disrespect to Tavares.
