The Toronto Maple Leafs have taken some of the most talented prospects from each of the past three draft classes.
In fact, The Toronto Maple Leafs are beginning to earn a reputation for drafting highly talented players outside of the highly coveted lottery picks.
Continuing to supplement the Leafs roster with a constant influx of talent is even more important than it has been in the past.
The Toronto Maple Leafs decided to enter uncharted territory in the NHL by diverting over $40M and just under 50% of their cap space to their four highest paid forwards.
Young players on entry-level contracts are going to be crucial assets in keeping the current core of the team together, based on the skill and salary relief they can provide.
The continued success of the following three prospects in the midst of phenomenal seasons will be fundamental to the maturation of the organization.
