The Toronto Maple Leafs have been struck by the injury bug countless times this season, but that has not stopped this team from coming together and putting some wins on the board.
The 2019-20 season has been quite the roller-coaster for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and it has only been three months.
From starting off slow, to getting unlucky with injuries, to firing Mike Babcock, to getting more injuries, this team has faced adversity and learned how to play through tough times.
Despite having almost every player on the team out with an injury at some point this season, they have incredible depth in the Toronto Marlies, as well as some depth players Kyle Dubas signed in the offseason that could easily slide into the lineup.
Question is, when everyone comes back from injury who will slide into the lineup and who will come out?
The Leafs have recently lost Andreas Johnson (on the mend), Ilya Mikheyev and Trevor Moore without missing a beat. This is because of the ability to rely on players like Timashov, Brooks, Engval, Petan, Spezza, Gauthier, Aberg, Wilson, and Marchment for unprecedented depth.
Obviously the likes of Johnson, Moore and Mikheyev all deserve to play higher than the fourth line, so when they are healthy, who comes out? Who plays where?
