Merry merry from ours here at CapFriendly to yours! Enjoy it for me while I'm at work until New Year's Eve.

Someone please make a separate thread for the World Juniors or use the prospect thread. Keep this one to NHL content thanks!

Prospect thread is definitely good for WJC but I feel like it'll end up in both threads by the end

Interesting chart👀

I mean, this is pretending McDavid won’t still be the best player in the league in 4 years. If you add the 2015 draft, I’d take McDavid+Barzal+Marner+Chabot over Eichel+Connor+Boeser+Werenski. I also think the next 2 drafts are good for Canada (Wright+Savoie+Geekie > Cooley+McGroarty+Nazar in 2022, I’d say Savoie/Cooley and Geekie/McGroarty match pretty well and Wright could be a top 5 player in the league, looks like a Bergeron/Toews type with even higher offensive upside, which blows Nazar out of the water, and both Bedard and Fantilli look like gamebreaking studs that are likely to go #1 and #3 in 2023, a cut well above the rest of the draft class, specifically Bedard looks like he could be right up there with McDavid and MacKinnon, and the #2 pick will be Michkov, a Russian, not an American) so that will help.

mmm We really dont got many top 6 LW If you look at the wing Depth Leafs RW depth is much greater than the LW. For instance if we look at wings who can play in the NHL within our system LW: Kerfoot, Ritchie, Bunting, Engvall, Clifford, Seney, Robertson RW: Marner, Nylander, Kase, Mikheyev, Spezza, Simmonds, Anderson, Steeves, Ho-Sang (once he signs an NHL deal) So from that we can see the Leafs have plenty of RW but not alot of LW especially ones who can play top 6 So yeah Senyshyn really does not work for us as if we look at the RW depth he really has no spot. But as I said before if he was a LW there would be a chance. @aadoyle

(Our conversation was upset by the closing of the old thread. So I will resume it here)

A lot of the guys you listed as right wings are multi-positional.

Question to everyone here

Who is the best player in the world outside NHL right now? Was having a discussion with my brother about the issue tonight, and I promised to ask some feedback from some other people watching hockey (you guys basically lol).

When Kaprizov was playing in KHL he was the easy answer but now we're in a bit of a pickle as we haven't really reached any kind of consensus on this matter. Is the best one even playing in KHL, or perhaps in juniors or possibly in University or something like that? Maybe in Switzerland.

Throw me some ideas about the issue. I'm positive we could figure out better names than Vadim Shipachyov.

Additional note: anyone answering Blake Comeau to this question deserves to have wet socks on them for the rest of the Christmas week lol

They also deserve to have both sides of the pillow warm.

Edit: my pick would be the best player who retired this year, whoever that should be.

Sounds about right


Lmao. The Leafs players aren’t surprising. The fact that Drouin is on here and Chiarot isn’t tells you all you need to know about the many garbage habs fans on this site (and the fact that other teams’ fans leech off their garbage ideas).

If we’re going outside of the KHL’s top players, maybe Matvei Michkov.

Tbf during his time off last year he was constantly dumped from the Habs team, whether it was as a cap dump or possibly him "retiring" or something like that. Even I thought he was going to get moved.
