2018 Top 25 Maple Leafs under 25: Community vote begins today

New, comments

There are 47 players up for nomination this year; who’s on your list?

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Every summer we here at Pension Plan Puppets kitten ranching and John Tavares statue manufacturing take time out between margaritas at our off-season company retreat and squabble among ourselves about who the top 25 Maple Leafs under the 25 are. Things can get heated, especially when I force people to choose between William Nylander and Mitch Marner. This year we want to share the burden with you and reward you for your efforts.

Our friends at the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum have sent us some limited edition Carlton the Bear bobbleheads to give away to our readers, and everyone who fills out their top 25 list gets a chance to win one of these beauties.

These are officially licensed from the Maple Leafs, so you know you’re not getting Carelton the Boar sitting on your desk for a few weeks before the head falls off. It’s the real deal, and it could be yours for free.*

To get started, right-click here and open in a new window to access the form. You’ll want the list of eligible players below available to you.

Now, yes the list can be a bit much but we’ve tried to make it as troll proof as possible to avoid a bunch of Islanders fans coming in and voting Frederik Gauthier #1 just because Tavares chose a team who only plays home games in one NHL arena over their group of vagabonds riding the rails all season.

Voting is open until July 20th, get going!

Here are the 46 players eligible for the 2018 Top 25 Under 25:

There’s your list to choose from. So mix up a margarita, call up your friends and yell at them why they’re wrong, and harass your mail carrier until they bring you your bobble head.

*Minus the time you put in filling out the form, nothing’s really free.
