My immediate thoughts on the list are:

  • Notice how most of these players didn't play hockey in the past two generations. The top 10 consists mainly of players that played prior to television. That's an issue for my generation because when you look at a team like the New York Yankees, they still have guys like Rivera, Jeter, Pettite, etc. All players that I've watched. They didn't stop producing great players 50 years ago and call it a day.
  • The Leafs have a major gap to bridge and a lot of catching up to do. Of that entire list of players, I saw Sundin, Gilmour, Clark, Domi, JVR (what on earth is he doing on this list), Kessel, Mogilny, Roberts, etc. Most of those players were just passing through Toronto or winding down their careers in Toronto. Of the recent players that had their prime in Toronto, only Sundin and Gilmour enjoyed some successful years in the blue and white and had deep playoff runs.

 I must admit, totally embarrassed that I have never heard of #29, Gordie Drillon, #40 Jimmy Thompson, #50 Bob Davidson, #51 Lorne Chabot, #55 Reg Noble, #56 Gus Mortson, #66 Wally Stanikowski, #67 Gaye Stewart, #69 Nick Metz, #72 Lorne Carr, #78 Billy Ezinicki, # 79 Harry Cameron, #87 Baldy Cotton, #94 Corb Denneny, and last but not least, #98 Joel Kulkay....I mean I have NEVER, EVER heard of these guys.

 

 Funny, JVR at #100, which kinda cheapens the list IMHO, and Todd Gill sneaks in there at #84 and nice to see Tie Domi in there as well.  WAAAAHHHHH NO Rocky Saginuk?? LMAO.....

I'd replace JVR on that list with Matthews... already.

 

See this is what happens when you try to make a TOP 100 list while having only 50 suitable candidates.  :eyeroll:

I know a fair amount about Leaf history, and some of these names have me at a loss....lol. You would think with 100 full years of players, they would not have to include a lot of 3rd and 4th liners and last pairing d-men....ha ha. I have no doubt Matthews and Marner will be in the top 10 when it's all said and done, barring trades or a short career due to injuries. They are just that good.
