Among the Maple Leafs prospects on Defense they just drafted Morgan Rielly and Matt Finn in 2012 and Stuart Percy in 2011. On the Toronto Marlies there is Korbinian Holzer who was mentioned as possibly replacing Luke Schenn and others such as Jesse Blacker. So their future Defensman is looking good, the difference is they don't get as much hype compared to Dougie Hamilton.

As for their Forward prospects Matt Frattin should be back with the Maple Leafs once the lockout is over and I would like to see Nazem Kadri and Joe Colborne with them full time if that's possible.

So overall it's not as bad as you might think.
