Much of the talk of the Leafs deservedly starts with them acquiring John Tavares in free agency, locking up the 2009 first overall draft pick for the richest unrestricted free agent deal in the salary cap era. Adding a superstar centre accelerates the team’s timeline immediately, thrusting them into win-now mode rather than looking like a good team with room to grow.

However, the offseason wasn’t all rosy, as departures of James van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak saw two of the Leafs’ longest tenured players leave town, partially in order to fit in Tavares’ $11 cap hit. The Leafs also didn’t do much to improve their blue-line, deciding to re-sign Connor Carrick to a one-year, $1.3 million dollar deal.

But despite all that, the Leafs still should be enough of an offensive superpower to finish around where they did last season (6th overall in the league) or higher. New GM Kyle Dubas isn’t one to sit around and be content with mediocrity, and looks poised to keep this team competitive through all seven years of Tavares’ deal.

Few teams, if any teams, can boast three players in their third season or less with the offensive capabilities of Mitch Marner, Auston Matthews, and William Nylander, all of which have topped the 60-point plateau in the past two seasons. What’s most impressive is Matthews did it last year while missing 20 games, notching 63 points in 62 contests.

Then again, the biggest questions about the team still remain on the defensive side. Nikita Zaitsev and Hainsey both struggled last year in the team’s top-four, with Hainsey showing his age and Zaitsev having a worse season than his impressive rookie campaign. However, it could easily be argued the team will be improved with the addition by subtraction model. With Roman Polak signing with the Dallas Stars, the team’s penalty differential is likely to improve, along with its possession metrics.

There are some positives on the backend, however. Morgan Rielly had his best season to date, posting 52 points in showing himself as a true top-pairing defender. The other high-end LD in Jake Gardiner’s defensive lapses cost the Leafs in their playoff series against Boston, but he also contributed 52 points in a career year otherwise. A UFA heading into next season, it remains to be seen whether the Leafs decide to fit him into their future plans, or perhaps flip him before the trade deadline. Lastly, rookie Travis Dermott looked extremely comfortable in an NHL role, and should be up with the big club full-time next year after splitting duties with the AHL’s Toronto Marlies this past season.

Frederik Andersen seems to have found his niche in two years as a #1 goalie, proving to be an above average option with stretches of .930+ save percentage play.

It’s going to be another year of run and gun hockey in Toronto, but that’s where they thrive best and should be one of the league’s hardest teams to match up against.
