Graetest Leaf Of all Time

Ok this is my first post here, i noticed you people are looking for the greatest Leaf of all time, now I also noticed it is very subjective. So I will give 3 players not named who maybe should get some consideration. But before I do that I have a question, Why isn't Rick Vaive given more credit, he is the first Leaf to score 50 in a season? Just wondering. Anyways here goes:

1. Hap Day (1924 - 1937)
2. Gordie Drillon (1937 - 1942)
3. Red Kelly (1959 - 67)

Granted these guys are from different era's, but hey they are in HOF , and they at least have Stanley Cup's to there name. Food for thought. Oh yeah for the person (or people) saying Borje Salming is the Sergei Gonchar of his era, what hockey did you watch? If any one from the Leafs of that era can be compared to Sergei Gonchar it should be Ian Turnbull (as said by The Messenger) Anyways, just an opinion.
