Prospect Watch

Just a few quick hits on a few young players that a lot of teams have their eyes on.

Matt Gilroy is a NCAA champion, and a UFA. I am hearing it's between Toronto, Montreal, Philly and Boston. He is expected to make a decision by Wednesday.

As far as goaltending prospect, Jonas Gustavsson, I am hearing he is all but a Toronto Maple Leaf. Burke met with his agent this past weekend and will meet with him again following the World Championships. Gustavsson cannot sign with a team until the completion of the World Championships, so do not expect closure on this one any time soon. Dallas is still interested but the Leafs are the heavy favourites.

Check the blog tomorrow, as I will make my first round playoff predictions!
