Leafs drafting and amateur scouting record is spotty at best as draft history shows. I personally would have made different selections and utilization of the picks we had.

Biggs and Percy are alright prospects at present, but I believe better picks could have been made. IMO

Trading the #39th & #30 overall picks to move up 8 spots was a 2 - 1 opportunity loss where players drafted after Tyler Biggs have odds of being better NHL players in time and you would have had 2 chances of hitting as opposed to one.

Lets not forget Leafs were left picking at the end of the 1st round because they traded away their top 10 earned pick previously, but it will be the 2010 draft that will end up hurting the Leafs most in time.
