The quality of prospects is not counted in goals,and assists,and thats why this ranking means nothing concerning to me.
The Leafs biggest need for forwards is grit atm, and as the "report card" points out, it's one of the strengths of the current batch of prospects. If one of those players can manage to secure a top 6 role, and a couple of others a bottom 6 role, we're golden. We have plenty of skilled perimeter players on the club.
If Burke can find that elusive #1C from outside, and Kadri (who's now been moved back to center) can take over #2C with Grabo moved over to the wing (where he's playing in the KHL atm), our playmaker dilemmas can be resolved, as well.
Otherwise, I agree with what you've said.
