The Hockey Future's Leafs note:

20. Toronto Maple Leafs

Strengths: Morgan Rielly leads a strong group of defensive prospects that also includes Matt Finn, Jesse Blacker, and Stuart Percy. In addition, they have a handful of skilled forwards with NHL experience like Nazem Kadri, Joe Colborne, and Carter Ashton.

Weaknesses: Many of the forwards are third and fourth line prospects, who have more grittiness than offensive skill. Additionally, Toronto has a fluid situation in net, both on the NHL level, as well as down the pipeline. The strongest netminder in the system is Mark Owuya, but he is off to a very slow start this season and may go the way of many highly touted Maple Leafs' goaltending prospects of the recent past.

Top 5 Prospects: 1. Morgan Rielly, D; 2. Nazem Kadri, C; 3. Joe Colborne, C; 4. Jesse Blacker, D; 5. Matt Finn, D.

Signature: “If you think there’s no pain coming, there’s pain coming,”.. Mike Babcock
