With the NHL Draft literally just around the corner, I think it’s time we take a look at some of the Toronto Maple Leafs' options for their first pick.

That first pick won’t actually occur until the third round, where general manager Brian Burke will have the joy of drafting 62nd overall with his first choice. Like I said, in this article, it’s not all bad, so I won’t get into any Leafs-bashing on the side of draft picks.

Barrels of teams build through late draft picks, including the San Jose Sharks and Detroit Red Wings. If you have a good GM, which I think the Leafs do, there’s no reason that every draft pick shouldn’t count.

Burke will attempt to make all six of his picks count in some way or another next month. Barring any surprise trades to grab a firstst or second rounder, No. 62 will be where the Leafs finally get in to the mix.

Here is a list of the Central Scouting ranked North American prospects from Nos. 55 to 65, that could give you a little insight as to what may be available for Toronto at No. 62 and beyond.

Bored? Google a few of these names if you haven’t seen them ...
