LAS VEGAS – If theres any silver lining to a season gone wrong, it will take
shape for the Toronto Maple Leafs at the annual NHL Draft in Pittsburgh on
Friday. Arian Foster Womens Jersey . “The reward you
have for a poor year is a high pick,” Leafs president and general manager Brian
Burke said Tuesday evening, following a lengthy Board of Governors meeting. “We
expect to get a guy at five thats going to be an impact player for us some day,

with Sarnia winger Nail Yakupov leading the pack. Rumours of a trade involving
the Oilers continue to bubble, but Burke denied any such knowledge or pursuit on
the Leafs behalf. “I have no sense from Edmonton that that picks in play,” Burke

premium offensive talent amongst a group stocked with capable blueliners. Long

selecting a centre was raised. “You can speculate,” he grinned. “We dont think
anyone that we get at five is going to play right away so drafting positionally
probably doesnt make sense. This is the one time in my life Ive considered it,
if there were a certain position available that we might try to fill it. But we
usually go best-available athlete and thats still the way I intend to go.” Matt Schaub Jersey . Peralta hit a two-run
