The leafs could totally suck ass this year and grab one of the top 5 but I see them being the typical leafs and getting somewhere between 8-13. If that's the case I would be hoping for any of the following: Pulock, Morrissey, Shinkaruk, Nichuskin and Zadorov. All of these kids are oozing potential.
TBH as much as we need a game breaking forward getting one of the first round defenders this year would not bother me because this teams defensive depth could become one of the best in the league.
If the leafs are middle of the pack near the deadline or tanking then I wouldn't opposed to moving pieces like macarthur for a 1st. That would give us a pick in the 19-30 range which has some intriguing players with my favourites: Bailey, Gauthier and JT Compher.
We should start taking chances on boom/bust players and give them time to develop. When there is a player with as much skill as Nichushkin still on the board, you take that chance.
