Leafs trade down their 25th overall pick for 29th and 76th

The Leafs have traded their 25th overall selection to the St. Louis Blues for the 29th and 76th picks in this year’s draft. This is similar to what the Leafs did in the 2014 draft when they had the 24th selection and traded down twice to land Travis Dermott, Jeremy Bracco, and Martins Dzierkals instead…

So, what should the Leafs do at the draft?

The draft starts today! So we asked our staff a simple question: Which prospect you want at 25th, who’s one late round gem you’d like the Leafs to draft, and what’s one trade you’d like to see? Jontent Pick at 25: We’ll all end up looking stupid because someone so much better than who we…

With the 25th Overall Pick, the Leafs select… Jonatan Berggren?

Who is Jonatan Berggren? The Swedish winger has been surging up the rankings lately – consistently being in the 20-35 range in most circulating mock drafts. He spent most of last year destroying the competition in the SuperElit U20 league, but has also tasted what it is like playing against men in the SHL for…

Maybe Later: Nils Lundkvist

The NHL draft starts tonight, so let’s get some last minute reading done on who the Leafs might select! This post is about Nils Lundkvist, who is a great talent but perhaps not consistently good enough defensively to earn a top round selection. Who is Nils Lundkvist? Other than a spelling nightmare for Rangers fans,…

Ian Tulloch’s 2018 NHL Draft Rankings

I’ve been obsessed with prospects for the past few years, so I figured I’d finally get around to making my own rankings for the 2018 NHL Draft. I tend to place a high value on skill, skating ability (particularly how well a player can accelerate and turn on their edges), along with point production, since…

If I Did It: The Leafs 2018 Draft

It’s Draft Day and that means I have enough time to cram one more mock draft-ish, rosterbation-y post into your eyeballs before we get to start discussing what the Leafs actually did. Anyway, we’re going to go pick by pick for the Leafs and discuss who should be taken there. Most of these are wishful…

Top Five Best Drafts in Leafs History

Yesterday, I wrote about some of the worst drafts in the Leafs history, although most of them were pretty recent (which makes sense, considering they were really bad for about a decade). So today, we’ll be looking at the other side of Leafs draft history, and look at some of the best drafts the Leafs…

Maybe Later: Cameron Hillis?

Who is Cameron Hillis? Cameron Hillis is a centerman for the Guelph Storm of the OHL. Taken 28th in the 2016 OHL draft, Hillis is coming out of his rookie OHL season in which he put up 59 points through 60 games. At 5’11” and 168 pounds, Hillis is neither massive nor undersized – he’s…

Maybe Later: David Levin

Who is David Levin? A star at the GTHL level with the Don Mills Flyers, Levin went first overall in the 2015 OHL Priority selection draft. Levin’s story gripped even the casual fan, as he grew up in Israel playing inline hockey and didn’t even begin skating on the ice until he was 12. Unfortunately…

Maybe Later: David Gustafsson

This year’s draft has been chocked full of talent. There’s a plethora of future NHLers it seems, especially with defenders and centers. Both of these are positions of relative weakness within the Toronto prospect pool, so this year seems like a prime opportunity to snatch up a chunk of prospects. For this reason, I expect…
