No. 23: Toronto Maple Leafs

Last Week: 23rd

Record: 10-9-5 (25 points)

The Maple Leafs might have the brightest future in the NHL, but at the moment, all of their future pieces are just finding their legs in the league. An 8-3-0 record at the Air Canada Centre is a bright spot for the team this year.
