Insight: Perhaps this victory will allow the Maple Leafs to forget about Phil Kessel ranting to the media and TSN posting a fan tweet joking about Joffrey Lupul sleeping with Dion Phaneuf's wife. Unlikely, though, as it's been a rough season in Toronto. The Maple Leafs scored two goals in the final period to erase a one-goal deficit versus the Panthers. Holland had 10 goals and 10 assists in 54 games this season.

Insight: Winnik is an immediate upgrade for a Penguins team that was looking for depth. Winnik had seven goals and 18 assists with a plus-15 rating in 58 games in Toronto. He will already have the second-best plus/minus on the Penguins. Toronto will pay half of Winnik's salary, and he will be an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Description: Toronto right wing Daniel Winnik notched two points on Saturday night.

Insight: Franson's Toronto teammate Mike Santorelli will join him in Nashville as the Predators send the Maple Leafs Olli Jokinen, Brandan Leipsic and a 2015 first-round pick. This is a good trade for both sides, and it should benefit Franson's fantasy value.

Cody Franson, D10/7/2014 11:53:00 AM
Description: Toronto defenseman Cody Franson (knee) is unlikely to be ready for Wednesday's opener.
Insight: The 27-year-old injured a knee and couldn't get through a full practice, according to head coach Randy Carlyle. He's a 30-point defenseman, but a -20 rating doesn't help his fantasy value.
David Clarkson, RW9/29/2014 5:05:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs right wing David Clarkson should not be drafted in fantasy leagues.
Insight: While he provides penalty minutes, Clarkson is an irrelevant fantasy player. His career-high in points is 46, but will most likely be around the 20-point plateau in 2014-15.
Nazem Kadri, C9/29/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Toronto center Nazem Kadri could be in line for a breakout year.
Insight: He had a career-high 50 points (20 goals, 30 assists) last season. And playing at 24-years-old this year, will look to increase those numbers. Kadri is a sleeper pick, that owners should target atthe end of drafts.

Description: Toronto winger Joffrey Lupul is looking to bounce back this season.
Insight: He still had 22 goals and 22 assists last year, but also had a -15 rating. If Lupul is able to stay healthy, he will have the opportunity to produce 60 points. Target him, staring around the 12th round.
Phil Kessel, RW9/29/2014 4:53:00 PM
Description: Toronto right wing Phil Kessel should be targeted early in fantasy drafts.
Insight: Kessel is a machine and should have no issue duplicating his 80-point mark from a season ago. Look to draft him in the second round, while targeting him at the end of the first, is not a ridiculous move as well.
Tyler Bozak, C9/29/2014 4:49:00 PM
Description: Maple Leafs center Tyler Bozak is coming off a career year.
Insight: While playing only 58 games, Bozak produced a career-high in numbers all across the board (19 goals, 30 assists, +2 rating). Heading into drafts, Bozak should be considered a sleeper, with potential to hit the 60-point mark, if he can stay healthy.
James van Riemsdyk, LW9/29/2014 4:37:00 PM
Description: Toronto left wing James van Riemsdyk should be targeted in the middle rounds of drafts heading into the 2014-15 season.
Insight: Coming off a career-high 61 points (30 goals, 31 assists), van Riemsdyk is really starting to come into his own. Still only 25-years-old, his numbers should still continue to trend up.
