Mikhail Grabovski's line hasn't been spectacular, but they sure have been exciting to watch. Grabovski himself has impressed with his great speed and work ethic.
Clarke MacArthur was a bit slow coming out of the gate following his suspension but seems to have gotten his confidence after having scored a couple goals.
Nikolai Kulemin, though he has only found the net a couple times so far, has been a reliable two-way player for the Leafs and is expected to continue improving.
And how about the Leafs' top line?
There's no longer the 1A or the 1B line because the Phil Kessel line has clearly shown itself to be the Leafs' top line.
Kessel continues to lead the NHL in goals and points. In addition to this, he's been pretty good defensively as well. Two great surprises for Leaf fans.
Not much to say about Tim Connolly, only because he has played just a couple of games so far this season, but he picked up a goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins yesterday and looked pretty good.
Joffrey Lupul is a point-per-game player at the moment. He's a player who is out to prove that Anaheim may have given up on him too soon and so far, that looks to be the case.
The top line will likely cool off a bit while the second line will probably heat up a little, but right now, the top-six corps is generating a lot of quality scoring chances while being defensively responsible as well.
They don't need to continue scoring at the same pace, but if they can continue playing the way they have been for the rest of the year, the Leafs will be in great shape next spring.
