Just saying I think we could use more playmaking skill up front. Especially in Bigger bodies.
I think that the Leafs have taken some pretty big chances with guys that are big wingers, but haven't fully developed them yet. Aside from the guys you mentioned, Crescenzi and Devane are 2 bottom 6 wingers with size.

They gave up on Sondre Olden and Josh Nicholls, who were both big and skillful. So the Leafs have really taken their chances with the few that they have selected.
