    Make Hartford great again...or at least develop a minor league system we don't need to be ashamed of.

    This is the best write-up on him: https://hockeytrending.wordpress.com...than-we-think/

    The stats seem to match what the scouts say about Leedahl, don’t be confused, Leedahl’s ceiling is likely a 4th liner but even the worst 4th liners in the NHL usually have put up offensive numbers so it is good to see that he has done that this season. The book on Leedahl is that he is a tenacious forward who takes pride in his defensive game and effectiveness in boards battles. Leedahl has grown into his body at 6’2 and 194lbs so he does have the physical characteristics to be a grinder. Leedahl has been seen as a great leader for most of his career in the WHL being one of the more respected players on both of his teams. He may not have the offensive upside as most would like and the road to the NHL will be long and tough for someone like that but he certainly has the drive and understands what his role should be if he gets there.
    Basically, if he becomes, say, Cal Clutterbuck, this is a great signing.
