With the 2012 NHL Entry Draft days away, teams are starting to look at the potential player they will be able to pick in the first and second round of the draft.
While this class is not predicted as being as deep in talent as years previous, each team will be looking at the best player available once the No. 1 pick overall is gone.
For the Toronto Maple Leafs, they will have the opportunity to add some young talent to their roster. Their first round selection could be ready to come up this year.
Their second round will more than likely need a year or two with the Marlies before making the switch to the NHL.
In the slides that follow, utilizing the June list of TSN’s Craig Button, we’ll look at three possible picks the Leafs can make in the first two rounds.
After they have chosen their picks on Friday and Saturday, we’ll revisit this piece with the results and analysis for their picks.
