Top 10 Toronto Maple Leafs Since 2000

The Top Ten Toronto Maple Leafs Since 2000

1 Mats Sundin

Captain Clutch made Leaf fans feel like we always had a chance. Mats often turned the tide of the game with a dominating shift. When Mats played, the Leafs had hope and were a dangerous team. - cws480

2 Curtis Joseph

His numbers may keep him out of the HHOF but CUJO was something else. I loved watching him make acrobatic saves that left others shaking their heads. Joseph's goaltending allowed the Leafs to open up offensively because he was good enough on his own back there to cover up mistakes. CUJO was the backbone to entertaining hockey. - cws480

3 Darcy Tucker

Tucker's face was ferocious and it was his emotion that all Leaf fans loved. Darcy was a goal scoring giant in Kamloops and although he never filled the net like that in the NHL, was a lot more than a foot solider. Tucker hit like a truck, fought for his mates and created a lot of energy. - cws480

4 Gary Roberts

The former 50 goal scorer was a tower of power in Toronto. Gary's career was far from done when he arrived on the team in 2000. Roberts was a hitting machine and was a timely goal scorer. Even as an older player, he was still a bear on the ice. - cws480

5 Tomas Kaberle

Maybe the best late round pick in Leafs history. Kaberle always looked like he was 16, but he grew into a steady, two way defenceman. The smooth Czech, was a head's up, break out player, with a strong first pass and good technical defensive skills. He anchored the Leafs blue line for a decade. - cws480

6 Steve Thomas

Stumps was a great trigger man. He was a solid skater with a strong shot and was an exciting, emotional player. - cws480

7 Travis Green

Not a really gifted player, but Greener found a good home in the Leafs lineup. Green was a reliable forward, a good leader and glue guy. - cws480

8 Bryan McCabe

Although he drove Leaf fans crazy at times and was basically kicked out of the city by fans, the former Brandon Wheat King had some tremendous offensive seasons. McCabe was a good hitter, a hard hitter and carried a big shot. - cws480

9 Auston Matthews Auston Matthews is an American professional ice hockey player for the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League.
10 Yanic Perreault

Before there was so much attention to face offs, Perreault was the best at it. Never a strong shooter, Perreault made up for it with a strong net presence. - cws480

The Contenders

11 Phil Kessel

Your kidding me kessel is number 1

12 Matt Stajan

If Stajan had of played during the competitive years the Leafs played, he'd probably be higher on the list and maybe still on the team. Staj, loved playing for the team and his emotion was palpable. Like Perreault, he was a good at face offs and going to the net for garbage collection. - cws480

13 James van Riemsdyk

Should be at least #5 I don't know 😐 he's just my favourite hockey player

14 Mitchell Marner
15 Morgan Rielly
