Whether there is a season or not, the Leafs will be looking to avenge an absolute horror show of a finish to the 2011-12 season which saw them fall from a playoff spot, to having a chance at the first overall selection in the 2012 NHL Draft.
After the Leafs fired head coach Ron Wilson and hired Randy Carlyle, the team did improve defensively, however, a lack of goaltending and scoring up front after the injury to Joffrey Lupul, saw the Leafs plummet down the standings and out of the playoff picture.
Call it what you will, but the Leafs looked to be far too inexperienced last year for a playoff run, especially in net. While they didn't have what you'd call a contending team, many people believed they were at least a playoff team.
The inexperienced bunch I believe got swallowed up by the monster we'd like to call Toronto Sports Media. Because of the immense pressure laid upon them, the young group crumbled and missed the playoffs for a record eighth year in a row.
With that said, I'll run down 25 Leaf players and one aspect of their games each of them need to improve on prior to the start of the next season. Whether its this year or next.
