Dion Phaneuf's deal is up at the end of next year. I hope and to an extent expect he will be resigned but in the event the Leafs and Dion part ways, is there a player in our system you see as having the potential to wear the C? I like Morgan Rielly, but does he have the make up of a captain? How about Tyler Biggs? He is reminicent of Dustin Brown, a stanley cup winning captain. What about current players like Kadri, JVR, and Lupul? Clearly some of these guys are quite young, but down the road do we have some potential leaders ready to take on the C in our hockey crazy market. Just want to get some thoughts!
He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
