Browsing the Barilkosphere - August 20, 2013

Named after former Toronto Maple Leaf great Bill Barilko, the Barilkosphere is a network of blogs and websites devoted to bringing you the news, information and opinion (and lots of it) regarding the Leafs you crave as a fan. This feature is dedicated to bringing you the best of the Barilkosphere every day except Sunday. So sit back and relax, pour yourself another cup of Joe and enjoy today’s round of fresh links.

Top 25 Under 25 – #15 Greg McKegg

The 21-year-old forward had an up-and-down season with the Marlies (which Leafs prospect didn’t?) but will get every opportunity to produce this year. From clrkaitken of Pension Plan Puppets.

TLN Top Twenty Prospects: No. 20 – David Broll

The LeafsNation is doing their own set of rankings, but unlike PPP, they’re focusing on prospects only. Sault-Ste. Marie Greyhounds general manager Kyle Dubas has some interesting comments about his former player. Cam Charron with the write-up.

Marlies won’t sacrifice winning culture for development

So they won’t intentionally lose, but they’ll probably lose a bunch of games anyway. From Kyle Cicerella.

Neal hopes to impress at Canadian Olympic camp

I’d be surprised if he made it, to be honest. Maybe he’ll squeak in as the 13th forward. From James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail.

Morozov on playing in the USA: “You always get the blame”

It’s been ten years since Aleksey Morozov last played in the NHL, but I can’t help but wonder if there’s still some lingering xenophobia in the “Old Boys’ Club”. Story from theScore.com.

Where Will Damien Brunner End Up?

Surely there must be a team willing to take a flier on the 26-year-old forward. From Peter Fish of Octopus Thrower.
