Defence has been the bane of the Toronto Maple Leafs since day one of their rebuild. Four seasons later, and now legitimate Stanley Cup contenders, their defensive struggles persist. After finishing 20th in goals against (3.04 per game) and 24th in shots against (33.1 per game), the Maple Leafs allowed 23 goals in seven games against the Boston Bruins en route to another first round playoff exit. They’ll be looking to improve on their greatest weakness heading into next seaso

There isn’t a whole lot of history to go on with Dubas and later draft picks. In fact we don’t even have a whole lot to go on early draft picks, but since the Leafs find themselves without a first round pick this year, perhaps it’s worth taking a look at a few of the 2nd round picks that have been made since Kyle Dubas joined the organization, and assign credit/blame to Dubas, Lamoriello, or Hunter, and try to establish if there’s any trend with these selections.
