96: None

98: Nik Antropov
99: Luca Cereda
00: Brad Boyes
01: Carlo Colaiacovo
02: Alex Steen
03: None
04: None
05: Tukka Rask
06: Jiri Tlusty
07: None
08: Luke Schenn
09: Nazem Kadri
10: None

Since '95, we've had 6 years with no 1st round pick, Cereda never played an NHL game, Rask never played a game for the Leafs, and 5 others have been traded. Only Schenn is still an impact player on our roster (though hopefully Kadri will be as well next season).

I believe Burke will turn the Leafs into a contender and I doubt that he will require 18+ years to do it!


What if this is....as good a sit gets?
