    Day 27 – Toronto Maple Leafs

    The Leafs are in a very strong prospect position as a result of the many moves and trades that Brian Burke has pulled off since arriving with the leafs. The Leafs have 33 prospects under the age of 25 somewhere in the Leaf system prior to the 2012 draft. A few of them are RFA’s this summer and may not get a new contract but most will form the basis of the leaf’s future development. Burke did not get Sondre Olden, Daniel Brodin and Josh Nicholls under contract and they went back into the draft eligible pool. The 50-contract limit is always a challenge for the Leafs. Leafs have also had a number of prospects that have played enough games in the NHL to not be seen as prospects any longer. Matt Frattin and Jake Gardiner played most of the season with in the NHL. Nazim Kadri has played enough in the NHL (21 games over two seasons) to longer be seen as a prospect. While most leaf fans would think of Ben Scrivens as a prospect he will be 26 when the next season starts so he doesn’t qualify as a prospect. He got a late start to his pro career; he played four years of college hockey before turning pro. Similarly Junas Rynnas is also now 25 and sort of out of the prospect category.

    C - Joe Colborne (CAN) Toronto Marlies

    6’5”, 213 lbs, 22 years

    Toronto acquired Joe Colborne as part of the Tomas Kaberle trade with Boston. He was drafted by Boston in the 1st round of the 2008 draft 16th overall. At the start of this season Colborne was on fire and was leading the AHL in scoring. Joe had 19 points in the first 13 games with the Marlies. He looked like a superstar in the making. Since that early start Colborne has struggled. Joe ended the season with 16 goals and 23 assists in 65 games. He suffered a concussion and a lacerated finger to add to his troubles and was not much of a factor for the Marlies in the playoffs because of the injured finger. Colborne also played ten games with the Leafs this season and did not look out of place if not spectacular in the NHL. He had one goal and four assists in the ten games. Colborne handles the puck very well and uses his size to shield the puck from checkers. He is not very aggressive and is often criticized for not using his size to punish opponents. His skating could be better and he will clearly spend some time with Barbara Underhill this offseason. He does have a good shot and like many players of his size it takes a little longer to develop.

    Projection: Top six forward

    Potential upside: 50 -75 points (Nik Antropov)
    ETA: 2013-14

    G - Mark Owuya (SWE) Toronto Marlies

    6’1”, 200, 23 years

    Signed by Brian Burke as a free agent in April 2011, he has played primarily with the ECHL Reading Royals but has played 19 games with the Marlies. In those games he won 11 with a save percentage 0f .927 and a GAA of 1.94. I have watched Owuya in a number of games and see him as a future NHL goalie. He plays a butterfly style and is a prime student with Francois Allaire. He is very athletic and very quick. He just needs time to develop further. There is little doubt at this stage that he will mature into an NHL starting goalie

    Projection: starting goaltender

    Potential upside: 35-40 wins (Ryan Miller)
    ETA: 2014-15
