Toronto Maple Leafs: Lesser Known Prospects

Seeing as this is prospects week, I thought I'd do a spotlight on a few of our lesser known prospects - players usually from the later rounds, and all of them projects of sorts.

As we all know, drafting prospects can be a crap-shoot or a home run

In terms of percentages after the first two rounds, the chances a player will actually play in an NHL game is greatly reduced.

However, for every 20 John Doe's - scouts unearth a Patrick Sharp, Kevin Bieksa, Ryan Clowe, Tomas Kaberle, Pavol Demitra, Anson Carter, Henrik Zetterberg, Nicklas Lidstrom etc...

In round 9 in 1994 any team could have taken Tim Thomas, Evgeni Nabokov or Tomas Vokoun!

I'm thinking Gunnarson (7th rd 2007) will be a great player. Do the Leafs have any gems in their system currently that the media hasn't spoken much about?

Here are 8 that caught my eye.
