It’s easy to pick a good hockey player with the fourth overall pick, but as swell guy Kyle Dubas has already told us, the Toronto Maple Leafs need to hit a home run with their 24th overall selection as well. Good teams pick good players when the good players are supposed to be all gone, and the idea is that the Leafs want to be a good team.
We at TLN have already begun prepping you with profiles of players that might be available to Toronto come pick #24 – here’s Nick Merkley and Travis Konecny and Thomas Chabot. We’ll continue to roll a lot more of these profiles out as the Draft nears, but that doesn’t mean you guys have to sit quiet until then.
The 2015 draft class is quite good, but it’s impossible to nail down consensus past maybe the first five picks or so. Who do you think the Leafs should draft in the latter half of the first round? Maybe it’s one of the three players we mentioned above, or maybe it’s someone like Oliver Kylington, Jeremy Bracco, Jansen Harkins, Jake DeBrusk, Daniel Sprong, Jeremy Roy… etc. etc. etc.
Let us know in the comments below – the person with the most thumbs up will win absolutely nothing, but the person with the most thumbs down will unfortunately be thrown into a volcano. 🙁
