No. 1: Noah Gregor Will Make the Toronto Maple Leafs
Noah Gregor has earned himself an NHL contract and should be a full-time player on the Leafs fourth-line this year after his performance thus far.
Gregor was one of the last signings of the offseason, as he joined the organization on a Professional Try-Out (PTO) and has looked great.
He has over 200 games of NHL experience already, so jumping into the line-up shouldn’t be a surprise, but none of us expected this player to be on the roster last summer.
However, his speed is strong and his aggressive nature makes him a natural fit on the team’s fourth-line.
Obviously you’re never expecting much offense from a fourth-line, but Gregor has shown that he can also score and as a result could move up and down the line-up depending on injuries.
Paired beside the likes of Sam Lafferty, Ryan Reaves and David Kampf throughout training camp, Gregor is a not only a no-brainer to crack the roster because of skill, but because of his contract, as he won’t be making much more than league-minimum.
Treliving made a few bone-head moves throughout the offseason but the Gregor addition seems like one of his best thus far.
