The Toronto Maple Leafs 2023-24 season was full of highs and lows.

For much of the first half of the season, the Toronto Maple Leafs largely underachieved, but from the middle of January on, the Leafs were among the best teams in the NHL, and only fell off after Marner was injured and their GM failed to improve the team at the Trade deadline.

The Leafs had a weird season.

Several times the team looked on the verge of collapse only for the team to make an improbable recovery (for example when they were down 4-1 to Tampa after one period, after losing four straight games; or when they made that incredible comeback against Columbus only to lose in overtime).

These kinds of things kept happening, and predictably, they happened against in the playoffs. The Leafs went down 3-1 and almost pulled off a great comeback. Unfortunately, they didn't quite make it, and here we are.

The Leafs technically outperformed expectations, and frankly, their team wasn't good enough to beat Boston without getting lucky anyways.

The Toronto Maple Leafs once again failed to advance in the playoffs and this time it cost Sheldon Keefe his job.

The Leafs will hire a new coach any time now, and they'll sign free-agents and make trades. Hopefully they will improve on what went wrong this season.

In the meantime, however we will have to review and analyze what went happened. To that end, I present you the 2023-24 Toronto Maple Leafs Player Grades. Mostly these are based on the regular season, but in some cases, a player's playoff performance might have influenced us a little bit.
