The Leafs had a promising last year with young stars Auston Matthews, William Nylander and Mitch Marner. Auston Matthews was the leafs first round pick in the 2016 draft and boy did it pay off, Auston scored 4 in his debut game, Nylander had incredible points streak and Marner had the fast hand to score but their dreams for a stanley cup was short lived when the Washington Capitals eliminated them in the first round. The Leafs than picked up a veteran in the offseason in Patrick Marleau. With the pick up of Marleau, the Lafs have been dominating the league around them beating the Chicago Blackhawks, Rangers and the Jets. This team has a promising future ahead of them which can lead them into a stanley cup in the future or even this year.
