    2012 - Morgan Rielly. One of this best defenseman in the league today and looks to be a perennial Norris contender. Duncan Keith 2.0.

    2013 - Frédérik Gauthier. Top 4th line centre in the league and could fill in as a second line centre on a team like the Habs.

    2014 - William Nylander. Elite, dynamic, explosive and one of only less than 75 players in NHL history to have back to back 60 point seasons before the age of 22.

    2015 - Mitch Marner. Wow, just wow, best playmaker in the league behind McDavid.

    2016 - Auston Matthews. Looking like the best player in the league, best 5v5 scorer in the league by far and is a generational player.

    2017 - Timothy Liljegren. Consensus 1st overall pick of his draft class before developing mono and falling to the Leafs. On track towards becoming a top 2 offensive stud much like Erik Karlsson.

    2018 - Rasmus Sandin. Still early, but he has looked great in the pre-season and his floor seems to be that of a top 4 defenseman.

    Gauthier is a huge bust due to the position he was drafted. If he was drafted in the 4th or 5th he would be OK.

    Probably as good as Bobby Orr, too. Would also be 1C if playing for Montreal.

    How is Gauthier the top 4th line Center in the league? He didn’t even make the opening night line up.

    If he carves out a solid career as a 4th line centre, then I wouldn't consider him a bust but a disappointment given he was a 1st round pick.

    They are intentionally under-utilizing him in order to keep his cap his under $7M AAV.

    There's a lot of good ones I swear, just a few brainless ones create 90% of the nonsense.

    It’s going to be one fun day when the leafs get knocked out of the playoffs.

    Useless thread to make. Gauthier is a huge bust considering Theodore and Burakovsky were taken after him. The Leafs are great we get it, lets talk about our magnificent turnaround on our own board.
