4. The Toronto maple Leafs Power Play Will Be the Best in the NHL
It is hard to believe that the Toronto Maple Leafs power play could get any better than they were last year. After all, they were ranked second overall in the entire league with a 26% success rate just behind the Edmonton Oilers, who ran away from the league with a whopping 32.4% success rate.
But believe it or not, the Leafs may be even more lethal this season. Gone from last season are the likes of Kerfoot, Engvall, Michael Bunting, and Rasmus Sandin that managed to find time on the Leafs power play unit last season.
Essentially, they have now been replaced with the incoming Domi, Bertuzzi and Klingberg to enhance the group even more. Not only that, but with the potential of big shot prospects such as Matthew Knies and Nick Robertson making the team.
Along with the main core of Matthews, Marner, John Tavares, William Nylander and Morgan Rielly, the Leafs now have plenty of potent options to equip two dangerous power play lines. They could be even scarier than the Oilers, who despite having the league’s best power play last season, they tend to just overload their first power play unit for their main success.
Because of the fact that the Toronto Maple Leafs will be able to roll out two lethal power play units unlike most other teams in the league, look for them to surpass the Oilers this year and become the league’s top-ranked power play.
