TheLeafsNation.com's Next TLN Blogger contest finally has its Final Five!
The response really was overwhelming. We received almost 100 applications to become the newest contributor for this site. Narrowing everything down to just five people was extremely hard. Justin Fisher and I burned the midnight oil earlier this week and we finally have our five. Here they are in their own words...

What can be said about Dominic Toninato that explains why we think that he’s the 16th best prospect in the Maple Leafs organization? Last year we had the excitement of him being above a point per game in the USHL which was good enough to put him 15th in our rankings. He looked to be following a path similar to Tony Cameranesi, in fact, his USHL numbers were better than Cameranesi’s, and he’s bigger. Both are fast Minnesotan kids attending University of Minnesota Duluth, their paths are similar so their rankings often are too.

Many of the players featured in our Top 20 Prospects series aren't that familiar to Leafs fans because not everyone checks out the AHL, CHL, or European games. David "the Brolldozer" Broll is one of just a few guys who made our list with actual NHL experience.
Even though we only ranked Broll 20th to start last year, at least one our our writers explained why we should be excited about him. It's been over a year and it's still worth a read.
You might note that another big fan of Broll is none other than Kyle Dubas.
