6. Toronto Maple Leafs

Previous: No. 2

You know about the young forwards, and you know veteran Patrick Marleau was added to that mix in the offseason. But do you know if Frederik Andersen can seriously lead this team out of the rugged East? And do you know if a defense led by 23-year-old Morgan Reilly can adequately support him? Those are big questions, but there’s no doubt the Leafs will be fun to watch this season.
