If you're looking for Nick Robertson to make the Leafs out of camp, one reporter has some bad news for you

Sportsnet's Luke Fox, a popular Maple Leafs reporter, was recently asked about whether or not Robertson will make the team out of training camp this time around. His response was a pretty definitive "no". His rationale was pretty iron-clad.
When you put it like that, there's almost no way Robertson will beat out any of Bertuzzi, Domi or Knies for a roster spot. His only chance would be to so definitively beat out Calle Jarnkrok or Sam Lafferty that the Leafs have no other choice. The other option is to shift Robertson over to the right side, where his chances are no better, competing against Marner, Nylander Jarnkrok, Lafferty and Reaves. With Lafferty and Jarnkrok having the ability to play both wings and center, their versatility will be a much greater asset to the Leafs.
The one way that Robertson might have a shot is if the Leafs were to trade Lafferty or Jarnkrok either before camp opens up or at some point before the season begins. I'm not so sure that will occur.
WHERE DO YOU THINK NICK ROBERTSON WILL START THE 2023-24 SEASON?
