I am very excited about this weeks Power Rankings. Not because the season is over, not because the Leafs finished 30th overall, and not because the Marlies in the playoffs. No I'm excited because this is the final power rankings of the season and I am about to get a couple of hours back in day every Monday. Selfish reasons are always the best ones, and I am very excited to see what I do with my free time.

The Toronto Maple Leafs' season is over, so hell yeah we're kicking off TLN's draft coverage right away. There's no need to delay, considering we now know that the Leafs are guaranteed one of the first four selections in the upcoming NHL Entry Draft. And with a 20% chance of winning the draft lottery and picking first overall, we may as well start with the almost consensus top prospect - Auston Matthews.

Regardless of what happens in the Toronto Marlies' last week of the season, they'll finish the season as the AHL's best team this year and the franchise's best team in history. In the last three-in-three run of 2015/16, the blue and white picked up five of a possible six points while icing a whole bevy of players.

Maple Leafs GM Lou Lamoriello turned a few heads this season when he placed Stephane Robidas on Toronto's long-term injury reserve, and, well, he never really came back. Was Robidas actually injured, or did the Leafs just not really want him around considering how dramatically his play has fallen off? Nobody knows for sure, despite what Toronto tells us.
A little later in the year, Joffrey Lupul also found himself injured and shelved. Nobody really batted an eye to that, because Lupul missing significant amounts of time is kind of this thing.
But now it looks like both could be gone for good.
Lou Lamoriello says Stephane Robidas's career could be over. Says he doesn't know whether Robidas or Joffrey Lupul will play next season.— Jonas Siegel (@jonassiegel) April 10, 2016
