Let's start with the 2013 draft, Leafs receive the 5th overall selection and snag Sean Monahan, after Mackinnon, Jones, Barkov & Drouin are taken before him.
With their 2nd round selection, Burke trades expendable pieces and chooses G Spencer Martin.
As F/A begins, rumors are afloat with the Leafs being big spenders, and manage to grab Getzlaf and G Niklas Backstrom.
The 2013-2014 season begins with the line-up set as.
Lupul (27G 35A) - Getzlaf (14G 46A) - Kessel (42G 38A) - Scoring line
JVR (21G 27A) - Grabovski (27G 25A) - Kulemin (15G 24A) - Shutdown line
Kadri (14G 28A) - Bozak (13G 31A) - Frattin (22G 13A) - Sheltered scoring line
Komarov (9G 10A) - McClement (6G 8A) - Brown (2G 4A) - Grinding/Shutdown line
Orr (1G 1A) - One of the most feared Tough Guys in the League
Gunnarsson (3G 18A) - Phaneuf (14G 36A) - Top pairing
Gardiner (8G 27A) - Holzer (2G 12A) - Plays against teams 2nd/3rd lines
Rielly (5G 22A) - Blacker ( 4G 14A) - Sheltered pairing
Liles (4G 19A) - Would sub in for Blacker/Holzer against weak offensive teams
(Our D-corps is harder to deal with then our Forward corps, because of all the PMD and lack of physicality, aswell as all the Lefties)
I won't be doing a prediction on the goalies as it's much more difficult to predict, but I will say it will likely be 50 games for Backstrom 32 for Reimer. (Unsure as to whether Scrivens gets traded)
The Marlies would be stacked with grit and size, boasting players such as... Broll, Biggs, Ross, Devane, Ashton, Colborne, Leivo, D'amigo, Ryan, Deschamps, Creszinski.
With our D also being stacked, with names including...Percy, Ranger, Komisarek
, Ranger, Kostka.
Our goalies still remain a question mark...
( This was meant for discussion purposes and for fun, criticisms are welcome and comparisons a encouraged )
that top line is low with a line like that all 3 should be close to ppg guys especially considering the PP time they' d get
