A little bit of news to pass along tonight, as Glen Campbell, CTV Sports Anchor in Calgary, reports that the Leafs may be closing in on a deal with Devin Setoguchi.

When we did these rankings last year, there were a few disagreements regarding who placed where. None of them dragged on as long as the one involving Sam Carrick, however. I ranked him at #12, while most of the staff didn't have him on their lists at all. In particular, Justin thought I was being quite silly.

Corey Pronman is a polarizing name in the NHL, but one thing is certain - if anyone knows prospect systems inside and out, it's the long-tenured ESPN Insider.

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's one thing to be really good at sport, but it's another thing altogether to make an impact on the sport itself. Thankfully for the Leafs, Borje Salming was both. In his time with the blue and white, Salming was one of the league's best defencemen, which subsequentially paved the way for millions of young Scandinavians to dream of one day playing in the NHL.
