This is at the very least a step in the right direction. The leafs scouting staff is pretty good, and will make good use of those picks.

This team may finish last, but its young enough to “get lucky”. What I mean is, young teams will struggle for a few years then take off. See Buffalo, Nashville, and recently Montreal. Keeping that success is another story, but for right now the leafs need to get the ball rolling.
