The Toronto Maple Leafs will reach the halfway point of their season on Sunday, January 14th, in a game against the Detroit Red Wings.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are currently on pace to finish the season with 104 points. It wouldn't be their best finish in recent years, but it would be a decent finish nonetheless.

The Leafs have a record of 20-10-7 for 47 points through 37 games.

Their 47 points have them sitting third in the Atlantic Division behind the second-place Florida Panthers (52 points) and first-place Boston Bruins (54 points). The Leafs will need to continue finding a way to acquire points, as the Tampa Bay Lightning (43 points) and Detroit Red Wings (42 points) are not far behind them.

Since the Leafs are almost at the halfway point of their season, I thought it would be nice to look at some of the positive surprises on the team thus far in the 2023-24 NHL season. There are plenty of negative things about the Leafs online, so why not add some more positivity?

There have been quite a few positive surprises for the Leafs, but after looking through them all, I think I've come up with a decent Top 5 list. So, without further ado, here are my Top 5 positive surprises for the Leafs.
