First up, we have Mikhail Grigorenko.
While he is not the top-ranked player in the draft, Grigorenko is the highest rated player with a boatload of potential whose style of play would fit with what the Leafs are looking for.
Grigorenko has a skill set that will not only help the Leafs, but complement the skill set of Phil Kessel on the top line. He has great hockey IQ, on-ice vision and playmaking ability that makes him look like the perfect candidate for the Leafs to look into this year.
Along with his great skill and playmaking ability, Grigorenko also has the size and strength that GM Brian Burke and head coach Randy Carlyle look for in their players.
Grigorenko came over to play for the Quebec Ramparts in the QMJHL from Russia this past season and put up great numbers for a rookie scoring 40 goals and 85 points leading his team in goals and second in points.
Grigorenko is currently ranked as third among North American skaters. With the Leafs holding the fifth overall pick, drafting Grigorenko would likely see them trading up to either second or third overall.
This would see the Leafs making a trade with either the New York Islanders or Montreal Canadiens. Toronto would most likely have to include this year's second-round pick or a prospect like Mueller/Holzer/Leivo/Nicholls/D'Amigo to insure they acquire Grigorenko.
