"The Future for Toronto Maple Leafs are High"
I'm not going to waste any time getting into this. The Toronto Maple Leafs have depth many teams wish they could have. The talent pool coming out Junior hockey is a surprise to the Leafs and GM Dave Nonis. Here is a complete layout of players that are projected to have the talent to make the Leafs in the future,
- Morgan Rielly "19" (D)- Toronto Maple Leafs NHL
- Josh Leivo "20" (RW)- Toronto Marlies AHL
- Jamie Devane "23" (LW)- Toronto Marlies AHL
- Tyler Biggs "20" (RW)- Toronto Marlies AHL
- David Broll "21" (LW)- Toronto Marlies AHL
- Connor Brown "20" (RW)- Erie Otters OHL
- Federik Gauthier "18" (C)- Rimouski Oceanic QMJHL
- Fabrice Herzog "19" (RW)- Quebec Remparts QMJHL
- Carter Verhaege "18" (C)- Niagara Ice Dogs OHL
- Matt Finn "20" (D)- Guelph Storm OHL
The Leafs have a future franchise defenseman in Morgan Rielly, a player who was a big surprise as he stepped up during his first chance in the NHL in Josh Leivo, a future 4th line fighter who can also put the puck in the net with big size in Jamie Devane, a power forward and first round pick who's stock in going down in Tyler Biggs, a big future 4th line power forward in David Broll, the biggest surprise for the Leafs with this years OHL leading point getter in one of the smallest forwards the Leafs have in the system with Connor Brown, 2013 1st Round Pick Frederick Gauthier who is a projected 3rd line center who wins faceoffs and runs the penalty kill, a swiss born forward who plays in the QMJHL was a surprise at this years world juniors and regarded as a sleeper, a player who has worked for his success who has a future with the Leafs in Carter Verhaege, and a defenseman who has to prove his way into the NHL with puck moving defenseman Matt Finn.
Will these prospects do their work and become pivotal players for the Toronto Maple Leafs in the near future?, I say most of them will but you never know. These propsects have high futures with the Leafs, but its up to them to earn it.
