It has been a long time since fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs have seen their team skate around the rink as winners of the Stanley Cup.

As a matter of fact, many Leafs fans have not even seen it in their lifetime since the last time it happened was the 1966-67 NHL season.

Even getting to the NHL playoffs has been rare for Toronto. The last time they made it was the 2012-13 season when they lost in the Conference Quarterfinals to the Boston Bruins in seven games.

Marner and The Leafs:

But brighter days could be ahead for the Leafs and one of the key reasons is that 13 of the 25 players on their current roster are 25 years of age or younger.

One of them being young 19 year-old winger Mitch Marner.

Even though the Maple Leafs are listed with 45/1 odds to win the 2016-17 Stanley Cup, online bookies may want to make note of this team and their young core.

They also brought in long-time Detroit Red Wings Head Coach Mike Babcock last year. Babcock is a proven winner and knows how to turn things around

For those taking part in hockey betting it would be wise to keep an eye on the Leafs and the progress of the young Marner. He was drafted as the 4th overall selection by Toronto in the 2015 NHL Draft.

In the two previous seasons before joining the Leafs this year, he proved to be a dynamic scorer with a total of 83 goals and 159 assists combined for the OHL London Knights.

So far in the 2016-17 season, Marner is tied for the team lead with 15 points which includes 6 goals. He clearly has a ton of skill and playmaking ability and could the Leafs the boost they need to get back to the playoffs and take a run at the Stanley Cup.

Some worry about how Marner will take the pounding of a long NHL season with his slim frame but so far he is continuing to excel through the early part of the year.

What Online Bookies Should Do?

Online bookies would be wise to keep an eye on the Maple Leafs as the season moves along to see if the odds change for this team.

Online bookies and per head agents need to be ready with their layoff accounts should Toronto’s Marner continues his streak.

He may not be The Leafs’ ticket into the playoffs, but as of now, he is a player to watch.
