    absolutely, he deserved to make the team in the first place, but john mitchell got in for being a scrub(burke admitted mitchell didn't even actually make the team, but the fact he was on a 1-way or something like that) and then he got a sports hernia and has been out for most of the year. Definately has pro potential as a 3rd line powerforward with maybe 2nd line potential if everything works out for him.
     
  4. Then why did Burke re-sign Mitchell?

    Why'd he ship him out for next to nothing?
     
  6. Read the part I bolded in the poster's quote. He said that Burke admitted the only reason Caputi didn't make the team is because of John Mitchell's one way contract. If this was true then Burke wouldn't have re-signed Mitchell in the summer.

    He's gunna stay for sure. He will be a good 3rd liner one day. Injuries just set him back a lot. He's a good net presence who's decent at every aspect of the game, if he improves he could be a gem

    Mitchell was signed before the camp, not after.

    He missed most of the season with an injury. I think it is a reasonably safe bet that he will turn into a solid, physical 3rd liner on a good team in the next few years as long as he can stay healthy.

    Think Raffi Torres with less grit + offense.

    Physical 3rd liner that can score 15-20 + 20 assists

    He deserved to be on the Leafs out of camp. I certainly hope he gets another shot after being injured for most of the year. He could make a great third liner down the road I think.

    I don't think Torres is a good comparison. Torres is a short tank, while Caputi is tall but really lanky. And Caputi doesn't hit like Torres can.

    The offensive production might end up being similar, but their actual styles aren't comparable, IMO.

    I think that's one of the problems for Caputi, he has a very lean build and he'd be more effective if he had a tank like build.

    I really like Caputi's game in the pre-season he crashed the net well, and had some chemistry with army.. he just needs to get back on track and he will have a role somewhere as a top 9 forward.

    Very underwhelming prospect IMO, and I say this as a Leafs fan. He's tall, but as stated not that strong, not exceptionally physical, and despite very good OHL and AHL production he really does not look dangerous offensively in the NHL. If he was more physical I'd say he projects as a real good 3rd liner, but since he isn't I see him as more of a mediocre 3rd liner in the future. Upside I'd peg as a less physical Troy Brouwer.
