Over the next few weeks, we'll be looking back at some of the more regular members of the Toronto Marlies, how they fared this season, and what could reasonably expect from them moving forward. Since one of the biggest stories of the playoffs was their goaltending situation, we'll kick things off by looking at Antoine Bibeau, who was the man between the pipes down the stretch.

For a while, we've been talking about how the goaltending situation for the Leafs is questionable at the top and lacking depth throughout. It's certainly becoming the biggest weakness for the organization as they turn the corner in other areas, and this summer could be important in addressing it. 

Toronto hasn't drafted a goaltender since Antoine Bibeau in 2013, and they really could stand to add a prospect from the junior ranks now.

Enter Carter Hart, the top goaltending prospect eligible for this month's draft.

Even when the sheets showed 3-0, both in the series and in Game 5, there wasn't much of a sense of inevitability. After all, the Toronto Marlies had come back from some crazy deficits throughout the season and winning four in a row happened significantly more frequently for the team than losing four of seven.

June 24th is set to be one of the most important days in the Leafs' recent history, when they'll head up to the podium in Buffalo and take the top pick in the draft for the first time since 1985. 

Understandably, all the focus that weekend will be on Auston Matthews. 

But with another pick late in the first round and then again at the beginning of the second, Toronto will have chances to take a couple more important prospects. 

Over the coming weeks, we want to take a look at who might be available in that 29-31 range that the Leafs could be pondering #AfterAuston.

Next up, Adam Mascherin of the Kitchener Rangers.
