Good teams have the luxury of keeping their young guys in the minors or overseas longer, its quite simple really.
Now smarten up because i don't want to have to side with a Leaf fan again.
Its even smarter to bring up some youth while playing veterans as well. The Leafs are very top heavy with very old players. Many of their young guns won't have the chance to play with key Leaf veterans that are on the team now.
