Leafs make curious choice with Timothy Lijegren
By Kevin McGran (The Toronto Star)


https://www.thestar.com/sports/break...liljegren.html

Sport reporter Kevin MccGran is likely unaware of what evil transpired at the OHL Import Draft, courtesy of the Niagara Ice Dogs. Had the Import Draft unfolded as planned, no one would be questioning the Leafs’ (Hunter Brothers) path set out for Tim Liljegren to wear green for year.

“That he is a Marlie at all is a curious development. Is playing for the Marlies at 19 really in the best interest of Lijegren? There is no real evidence the Leafs – actually can produce a defenseman. On the current roster only Morgan Reilly is homegrown. Reilly spent a brief amount of time on the Marlies in 2013 – after Moose Jaw was eliminated.”

…probably would have been smart for the Leafs (TL) to follow that same path as Reilly?

“Maybe the Leafs should have chosen (Sweden) for Liljegren. The Leafs have gone out on somewhat of a limb here with Liljegren, who needs consistent minutes and consistent role on a consistent team. They have time with their prized blueliner.”

…Hello, the OHL (Ice Dogs) could have provided him that consistency. Look around the NHL, there is a lot of evidence that the OHL can produce defenseman!
