"From my take, at this point, I don't see any reason to put a new contract offer on the table here," Burke told AM 640. "I think that this might be time for a change of scenery for Nik Antropov. I don't think Nik's play has merited that discussion to this point." Antropov has spent his entire NHL career with the Maple Leafs since entering the NHL in the 1999-2000 season. The 6'6 Russian, who turns 29 on February 18th, has 16 goals and 22 assists for the Leafs so far this campaign. Antropov was picked 10th overall (1st round) in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. His most productive season came in 2007-08 with 26 goals and 30 assists for 56 points in 72 games." Personally, I'd like to have this guy play for us. He is big and has the talent to make him a complete player. I don't think he's shown everything he has to offer to the game yet. I can see him as a 30 goal scorer. With Burke's wonderful sales pitch I think his value has gone from a 1st round pick to a 2nd. This is the time for us to grab him and mold him into a valuable, productive player. What we can offer is the question. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
