Leafs future is bright

Publish date:

The Toronto Maple Leafs should give Justin Pogge some playing time in March. This way he will be ready for next year and be a steady backup to Vesa Toskala.

By 2010 the Leafs will have Pogge, Jeremy Williams, Nikolai Kulemin and Steven Stamkos or Drew Doughty all ready to play.

Add them in with Tomas Kaberle, Ian White, Jiri Tlusty and some other key players, and Toronto should finally be able to compete for a top position in the standings.

Please Leaf Nation, don't make a late run, miss the playoffs and get a good draft pick.
