    Who will emerge from relative obscurity and have see a big jump in production?

    I always thought Panik had a lot of potential and wasn't thrilled when the Leafs basically dumped in. Marchessault was a prolific scorer in the AHL. These two didn't really come out of nowhere themselves... who will follow in their footsteps?

    My guess for Boston would be Vatrano. Kid can snipe, just needs to improve on a few areas of his game.

    You mean players that left Tampa and exploded offensively? I guess Drouin is the answer here.

    Really the answer is Yanni Gourde, but this time they held on to the young breakout player.

    Jordan Weal is a candidate. Only played 23 games last year after toiling away in the AHL but turned heads and may be in the Flyers top 6.

    For Ottawa, I'm very comfortable saying Dzingel.

    He is even under rated by Leaf fans. This is going to be the next Steen. By that I mean the Leafs will lose him to waivers or trade him for cheap, and hell become a solid first liner for whoever gets him.

    Almost PPG when he managed to get in covering for injuries. Babs has something against him, but he is better than JVR. I know it's a small sample size, but he's got a motor and is a hound on loose pucks, and has a good reservoir of offensive tools.

    He's got size, he's got skill, the only knock on him has been compete level but that was not an issue last year. I think he winds up gone by the end of camp, and it is a huge mistake.

    Good luck to whoever gets this kid...

    10 points in 13 games isnt the best sample size, but its defiantly a very good sign. Agree with u for sure.

    He definitely is not.

    JVR seems underrated to me on these boards. People talk about the guy like he's some second line chump who only gets points because of his linemates or something. I know he scores a lot of garbage goals (of course, those are just as valuable and teams NEED guys who can score them nowadays) and he's meh defensively, but 6'3 forwards who have hands and consistently put in 25+ goals aren't exactly common.

    I think Leivo can be a 20 goal scorer, but he's no van Riemsdyk.

    Lol you were doing so well and actually had an argument. Then you lost all credibility right there. Try watching more than just stats next time thanks.

    I can see it. Didn't he score 35 goals in 35 AHL games or something like that? His shot is wicked.

    My vote- Oscar Lindberg.

    Definetly agree with Leivo. He is very good and always very dangerous when he players. Too bad is very rarely. Better then brown and hyman

    Couldn't tell you how happy I was when he was protected in the expansion draft. Hope that means leafs have future plans for him

    Because he's soft as butter and is invisible a lot of the time. Not a guy you can rely on when the going gets tough.

    A few guesses for me (im assuming we're just talking about breakout players?)

    -Nic Petan
    -Calle Jarnkrok
    -Brett Ritchie
    -Ryan Strome could be a nice sleeper pick
