Pronman's Top 50, midseason edition

Leafs have #13 Liljegren, #15 Kapanen, and #49 Bracco. Dermott was exempted due to 'graduating' (i.e. in the NHL at the time of assessment).

Korshkov won't be crossing the pond for at least one more season.

Oh no. Now I'm worried that pick will end up being a bad one.

FWIW since the coaching change on Korshkov's team he has been one of the leading forwards in ice-time and his production really ramped up.

He could have a really big year playing in an excellent league next season, that's probably more valuable than him being a depth piece on the Marlies.

I'm not ready to write him off just yet.

What's going on with Liljegren? Is he going to make the team next season?

I wouldn't count on it. Another year, or maybe half year like Dermott, of AHL seasoning is probably for the best.

I'll take your word for it, but his numbers still don't look very encouraging:

Yeah, I'd definitely avoid rushing him just because on a surface level he sort of fits what the Leafs are looking for right now. He'll only be 19 going into camp and I think the Leafs should want to see him really dominate the AHL before they look at him as a solution to their issues.
