    Finally.

    Going to the Marlies too.

    A real stretch for Hunter. I hope he pans out.

    Nice. Hopefully Korshkov works out.

    Ya, I wasn't a fan of the pick then or now. But that isn't the players fault, and I hope he does well. I expect he'll be in the AHL, as well. He shouldn't be expected to make the team right away. He might squeeze in, though, if he's the only guy the team can afford under the cap.

    If he is already in Toronto as rumoured, then he could be playing with the Marlies today.

    It actually wouldn't be a terrible stretch. He should get some Marlies time first, but the guy is very skilled. He's also 23 years old with a fair bit of KHL experience, so it is not like he is some rookie or anything.

    If he was playing in an appropriate role in the KHL (he was often stuck with crappy minutes, which impacted his production) and did not get injured, it would probably be almost a certainty that he would be in our top 9 next year.

    Does he have a physical aspect to his game? Does he hit and go into the dirty areas like Hyman does?

    Is his mobility NHL level?
    Does he use his size?

    That can make all the difference.

    He's identified as a RW, does he play the off-wing?

    It would be nice to have something like this.

    Hyman-Tavares-Marner (if retained)
    Korshkov-Matthews-Nylander
    Engvall-Kadri-Kapanen
    Marchment-Brooks-Moore

    I understand the optimism. It's a lot to ask a guy who has never registered 30 points in the KHL to come over and play with our superstar center. As you said, he's never had an opportunity to play in a scoring role with his team. Why would he now come over and get that role in the NHL? I think if he starts in the NHL it's in the bottom 6, but more likely I think he starts next season in a top 6 role with the Marlies. Hopefully he gets some experience playing this year and shows a lot. I'm not holding out hope though for it to all happen that quickly.

    As a Leafs fan, yes, I hope it happens. Rationally, no, I don't think it will.

    Feschuk barely knows prospects who play in Toronto.

    I expect he knows nothing about this guy.

    Yes, we heard the same about Hyman being in the top 6 for how many years now.

    It really depends on the mobility.

    He's going to the AHL now on a PTO to join the Marlies on their Calder Cup run.

    Like his chances to make the Leafs to start the season. The unknown regarding contracts/cap and Hyman's injury might further add to the possibility. Like the potential add of skilled size in any case.

    Really? I guess im just really down on the guy. I dont even know if he would crack the team next year.

    Hopefully he looks good with the Marlies.

    Not a one year deal? C'mon Dubas, sign him to one year and throw him on Matthews wing!

    I'm not hyped at all for Korshkov. But at least he finally signed.

    I hope he's ready for some AHL playing time.

    I don't know how anyone can look at his stat line and think "put him with our best player"

    Dream your own dream, I'm hoping for a big inexpensive physical winger for the bottom 6 before the end of 2020-21.

    It is important to note that it is very tough for young players to get a ton of ice time on top tier teams (like Lokomotiv) to get meaningful ice time. They are stacked with so much high end vet talent that the fact he was able to make the team at all is already impressive.

    Like I said, I'd put him on the Marlies for next year, but I wouldn't be surprised if he finds himself on the Leafs, or even on Matthews' wing, next year.

    I think expectations for him are quite low, so all he can do is surprise us and impress.

    Also, hopefully no more broken legs.

    He's got the size for sure. Will help on our wing.

    Brown replacement? Will miss Brownie though.
