Where Does Each Toronto Maple Leafs Free Agent Forward End Up?

Nick Robertson

Robertson has yet to solidify a spot in the lineup but I am begging this team to give him a run with real ice time. Keefe didn't trust him so I'm hoping early in the regular season Berube will give him a chance. He is one of the best 12 forwards on this roster and deserves more ice time.

The 22-year-old played 56 games last season with the Leafs where he scored 14 goals and 13 assists for 27 points. In the playoffs, he played six games where he didn't record a point.

Robertson is still so young even though it feels like he has been around for a while. With more experience and that shot he has, he can be a real piece for this team. I think Treliving also brings Robertson back on a two-year deal with an AAV of around 1 to 1.5 million.

Noah Gregor

Treliving brought Gregor in on a PTO when camp started and he played 63 games for the Leafs where he posted six goals and six assists for 12 points.

I don't think Gregor brought much outside of his speed. The Leafs do need speed but Gregor doesn't bring anything else. I know Gregor was signed to a PTO so you get what you pay for, but I wouldn't want to see Gregor back.

Whoever ends up signing Gregor would probably get him on a league-minimum deal for a year. My prediction is Noah Gregor will end up in Anaheim. The Ducks aren't going to be a strong team again next season and they hold the third overall pick in this draft. It looks like it'll be another year of development. Gregor could take an depth role there as they build a stronger team with their core of young players.
