<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>LeafsFanForSomeReason</b></div><div>If he’s retained, yes absolutely. He was a prime change of scenery candidate.

Really think he would do well here.</div></div>

I wouldn’t be opposed to Kevin Labanc either. Can’t see him costing much (even with some retention)

There has been sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much thrown out there about the Leafs and what they might do.

The one thing I believe the most is, Keefe and co value Kerfoot and what he brings defensively. I don’t share their same desire but that’s whatever.

Friedman saying” I know the organization listens to Keefe on this kind of thing. They trust their coach and his opinion. My belief is before they move on from Kerfoot, they have to convince Keefe there are other options. I think they would like Holmberg to be one of those guys. They were really hoping Holmberg would be a player this year. Even though faceoffs are a bit of a struggle, he is showing he is going to be something. In Kerfoot’s case, in particular, <strong>I think they are going to have to convince Keefe that someone can do the job better.</strong>”

I feel like Beauvillier or Leblanc could be those types of players Keefe would like. The only real caveat being both those guys don’t play the PK.

- “It’s never easy to put up points as a young forward in the Finnish Liiga, and Roni Hirvonen knows that all too well. But the 21-year-old Toronto Maple Leafs prospect has five points in his past four games, marking one of the best stretches of his tenure with HIFK in his fourth year in the Finnish Liiga. He’s third among U-21 scorers, and while HIFK has struggled to put up goals, Hirvonen has started to show some decent consistency. His significant pro experience will help for when he eventually heads over to North America, which could happen as early as the end of this season after signing an entry-level contract back in May.”
