Why I like the Rodion Amirov pick for the Toronto Maple Leafs

Heading into the draft, I would’ve been hoping for either Seth Jarvis (who went to Carolina) or Amirov if I were the Leafs, and I would’ve been thrilled with this result. Amirov is also who I thought the Leafs would take:

I’ll guess one of Jarvis or Amirov.

Let’s go with Amirov, who could be there even if they trade down a few spots. He’ll be good. He’ll be an above average skater, transition player, and takeaway specialist at the NHL level. Good piece even if you don’t have a PP1 spot.
