Toronto Maple Leafs Superstars Proving The Team Should Go All In

The Toronto Maple Leafs have had a terrific last 10 games, completely turning around a season that once looked like a failure. With Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and William Nylander on pace for their career-best seasons, this season might be the Leafs best chance to go deep yet.

The Toronto Maple Leafs took down one of the NHL's top teams on Saturday night, defeating the New York Rangers in a shootout.

The Leafs are now 9-1 in their last 10, and their top 3 forwards have been leading way.

Both Mitch Marner and William Nylander found the back of the net on Saturday night, and while Auston Matthews failed to add to his league-leading 53 goals on Saturday, he's still scored 11 times in his last 10 games.

These 3 have been leading the Toronto Maple Leafs all season, and with a few more additions to the roster, the team could have a real shot at the Stanley Cup.

Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and William Nylander are all on pace for their best seasons ever.

As mentioned before, Matthews currently leads the NHL in goals, and it's not close

Matthews is currently 11 goals above second place (held by Sam Reinhart), and with 22 games left, there's a good chance Matthews can hit 70.

On top of this, after a bit of a slow start to the year, Mitch Marner is also on pace for a career-high. Injuries and the COVID-19 pandemic have prevented Marner from hitting 100 points, and after hitting 99 last year, it looks like he'll do it this year.

And last but not least, William Nylander has found a new level to his game. He's grown from a strong top-line player to a full-blown superstar.

Nylander looked like a Hart Trophy candidate earlier in the season, and he's continued his hot start to now sitting 6th in the league in points.

If Brad Treliving is smart, he's going to go all-in on this season.

The team has been playing their best hockey of the year as of recently, the stars have been playing amazing, the secondary scoring has been stepping up, and the goaltending has been great, especially with Joseph Woll returning.

The trade for Ilya Lyubushkin was fine in my opinion, but there's no way that's all that Brad Treliving will do this trade deadline.

Outside of the Oilers and maybe Avalanche, the Leafs have the best group of superstars in the NHL, and a few more additions could put this team over the top.


Let's see what they do come deadline time.
