ICYMI, the Toronto Maple Leafs have been all kinds of horrible over the past several weeks. Like, losing-ten-games-in-a-row horrible. With that streak, the Leafs have dropped down the standings and are now pretty securely in the Connor McDavid sweepstakes.

Last night was hilarious. Jonathan Bernier nicks himself with his skate and has to leave the game to get fixed up. James Reimer relieves him for the briefest of moments, and gets pulled when Bernier is ready to return. Bernier then gives up two goals and the Nashville Predators beat the Toronto Maple Leafs for their tenth straight loss. What a riot!

Welcome to the TLN Top Twenty Leafs Prospects Midterm Ranking, where we judge and scrutinize very young people and tell them they probably won't realize their dreams. I mean, maybe if we were ranking some other team's prospects then, yeah, sure. But no. Not here.
Eight writers from the TLN staff submitted their updated Top Twenty lists over the weekend and the votes have been tallied. Today, we'll focus on our Honourable Mentions, who all received votes in at least one writer's list, but didn't have enough votes to crack our overall Top Twenty.
A note on criteria... We defined prospects and players 23 years of age or younger, and having played less than 60 NHL games to date. So, for example, a guy like Carter Ashton (23 years old, 54 NHL games played) barely made the list of eligible prospects.
