Comparing 3rd line centers around the NHL (LeafsNation)

Which Red Wings prospect has the most to prove this training camp (Nick Seguin)

  • Big Nuggets

    I clicked on ‘Comparing 3rd line centers around the NHL’ from leafsnation. Sounded like a good idea for an article, turned out not to be. I guess it was supposed to be funny but it didn’t have any jokes, just insulted and dismissed every team except toronto. I’ve never actually cheered against TO but they are turning into massive trolls. I guess not winning in 50 years brings out the worst in people.
