The Toronto Maple Leafs made significant changes to their lineup this off-season. Some of the players brought in will benefit from playing with Auston Matthews or John Tavares. However, some will need to step up their game to take pressure off the team’s top guys.

Not everyone new to the Toronto Maple Leafs needs to step up their game. Some were on the team last season, while others have been here longer.

For the team to replace the scoring output lost during free agency this summer, they need everyone to perform well.

No matter where a player finds himself in the lineup, he must find a way to produce offense.

With the changes made by other teams in the Atlantic Division, the Leafs have a good chance of winning the division.

Doing so will be a complete team effort.

It might sound cliché, but the team that scores the most goals wins the game. As simple as that sounds, the Leafs struggled with scoring at times last season. There were too many games where they lost by a goal or lost to a team they should have easily beaten. Those are some of the adjustments the team needs to make to be on top.

Of course, having a healthy Auston Matthews for the entire year will make a huge difference, but with the salary cap situation the Leafs are going to need good seasons from some of their cheaper players.

Here is a look at the five players the Toronto Maple Leafs need more from during the 2023-24 NHL regular season.
