Now that the Mississauga Steelheads have the rights to, and allegedly the commitment of Alex Nylander, the Leafs should take full advantage. Mississauga has William's rights as well, and as such, Toronto should send him there for next season. He'll easily break every OHL record, make his brother a bit more comfortable, and at the same time, make teams believe that Alex's natural ability is him being carried by William, thus making Alex fall in the draft rankings. The Leafs pick Alex, and then go on to win eleventeen Stanley Cups. It's the perfect plan!

Well, other than the fact that other GMs aren't that stupid and that it would stall William's development. Uhh... let's answer some questions!

As we embark on our annual TLN Top 20 Prospects series, it's important to remember and recognize the special players that paved the way for tomorrow's stars. Over the next few weeks, we will be announcing our first ever TLN All-Time Greatest Leafs Team, announcing a new player every day until we've filled out our 23-man roster.  

It might seem a little surprising to include a defenceman who averaged just around 15 points per season on an all-time team, especially when the Leafs have had their share of offensively gifted blue liners come and go through the years. But there was no way we were leaving Bob Baun off this roster. 

Baun was among a core of players who went through a Cup three-peat for Toronto in the early sixties, and of all the players on our list, had arguably the most shining single moment in Leafs' history.

I'm of the belief that it doesn't matter where your hockey players are from; Belarus or Belleville, Scarborough or Siberia, at the end of the day, you want to assemble a roster of the best twenty guys you possibly can - their sticks will speak louder than their passports. But sometimes, you get lucky and find a good player who also has the loveable local connection. Stuart Percy was born to wear blue and white; born in Oakville, he wore it as a fan, in minor hockey, in junior, in the AHL, and for the first time last year, he wore the real deal in a regular season game.

But what does the twenty-two-year-old have to do to stick around full-time?

Over the next few weeks, we will be announcing our first ever TLN All-Time Greatest Leafs Team, announcing a new player every day until we've filled out our 23-man roster.  

You can't have a Leafs all-time team without the first member of Legends Row, can you? In a game that's progressively become mercenaries playing well for the employer that hires them, it's always good to look back at players who weren't just Toronto Maple Leafs on their tax forms, but in their hearts as well. Ted Kennedy matched this description from the moment he joined the team until the moment he passed away.
