Occasionally I will waste an afternoon making lists, and I had a great time listing out every Maple Leafs draft pick in team history. Why do I do things like this? No one knows, but with the 2020 NHL draft coming up in less than a month, I thought I would bust out that list and see what I can do with it.

We’ve had a lot of great draft pick profiles come out this year, as well as other pre-draft content and I gathered some of it here for you: many Zach Hymans are we going to draft?

It’s no secret I’m bad at analysis but kinda okay at picking through Leafs history and finding some randomness in all the items and over the next few weeks I’m going to use that list I made to gather things up into collections of silliness. A few years ago I looked at the Leafs draft round by round, which you can see here:

Since filler content is my passion in life, we’ll look at the Leafs favorite teams to draft from, which GM’s favoured college kids of major junior and any other piece of random trivia that has no use existing in the world. It’s going to be fun!

If you were nursing a long weekend hangover yesterday, here’s what you missed:

Did you know the playoffs are still going on? I know! I forgot too!

No, the Leafs are not on this list because their goal song is perfect.

Lots of players/prospects are heading to Europe:

Even more chances to make the Canucks play at 4PM local time? I love it!

Could Letang be part of the Leafs future?

Alright folks, that’s it for me. Have a great day and keep an eye out for my first piece of pre-draft filler content. It will go up as soon as I stop working doubles.

So, like, never.
