If the Toronto Maple Leafs fall in the First Round this year, expect some big changes this offseason.

After winning their first playoff series in 19 years last season, the Toronto Maple Leafs quickly lost in five games to the Florida Panthers.

They had a brilliant team, but unfortunately fell victim to one of the best goaltending performances in NHL history from Sergei Bobrovsky.

After failing to advance past Florida, many expected changes, but nobody expected that change to be former GM Kyle Dubas.

Reports indicated that Dubas wanted a bigger role in the organization and it seems he lost his job in the aftermath of a power struggle.

As we all know, Dubas eventually got what he wanted from the Pittsburgh Penguins and that organization is in a better place as a result. Moving on from Dubas was one of the dumbest decisions this organization could have made and I truly believe it will cost them in the future, but I digress.

The playoffs have not been kind to the Leafs over the years and since they've continued to run each year back with the same core and have continued to lose, I think this is the last year they're committed to that process. I think if this team fails to advance in the playoffs, there will be big changes with some names we might not expect.

As such, here are three Toronto Maple Leafs that I expect to be gone from the organization next year if the team fails to advance in the playoffs.
