The Toronto Maple Leafs were a very unpredictable team in 2010-2011. The team opened the season with an impressive 4-0-0 record, struggled consistently in November and December and finished the season with a strong playoff push that left them eight points short of 8th place in the Eastern Conference.
The 2010-2011 season was a roller coaster ride to say the least, and along for the ride were a number of players and staff who either exceeded or failed to come close to their expectations. Some emerged as fan favorites and saviors in Toronto, while others were nearly run out of town (or sent to Nashville, like Lebda) and constantly criticized for their poor play.
Needless to say, the Maple Leafs as a whole have a lot to prove come October. However, individually, the need to display their value to the city of Toronto is at the top of the to-do list for some. Here are five Toronto Maple Leafs with something to prove in the 2011-2012 season.
