Around the halfway point of the season, the Toronto Maple Leafs were still poised to make the playoffs. After a solid performance through October and most of November, the Leafs looked more like the hungry team they had been at the end of last season.

When February began, the team continued on until a couple of tough losses soon saw them plummeting to the basement of the East.

Now battling it out for the worst in the East with the Islanders and the Canadiens, the Leafs barely resemble the team they were at the beginning of the season.

Brian Burke has a number of changes to make in the offseason, and much of that will ride on the overall performance of the team. Some players may be packaged in trades to bring in the key components Toronto lacks.

All is not lost, however, there are a few pieces that Toronto already has in place.

From the Marlies players who are ready for their break to Kessel still managing to being fifth overall in goals this season, we look at the eight pieces the Leafs already have in place for next season.
