9. Toronto Maple Leafs

Previous: No. 4

Expectation bar: Matched

The Leafs have not been bad by any stretch of the imagination, but the top portion of the NHL is just super competitive right now. Toronto is the only team with more than 90 goals (92), and I think the demise of Frederik Andersen in goal has been overblown. These are the Leafs we expected — just not in the spot we expected them.
