List Rules Vote for the players you think were the best Maple Leafs based on their time on the ice for Toronto, not necessarily their popularity.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have rocked Canada and beyond with their decades-long span of success on the ice. One of the “Original Six” members of the NHL, the Toronto Maple Leafs were founded in 1917. Thirteen Stanley Cups later, some of the greatest Maple Leafs in team history are also some of the most recognizable faces in the league. Many Maple Leafs have taken home individual honors, even when the team has faltered. If you want hall of fame players, the Maple Leafs have them. Does the name Phil Kesser ring a bell? In addition to Kesser, players like Reginald “Red” Horner, Jack Adams, and George Armstrong are further proof of the great players in history who have scored for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The list includes newbies who have shown their skill on the ice, from Nazem Kadri to James van Riemsdyk.

Who are some of the greatest Toronto Maple Leafs of all time? That's not an easy question, especially when you consider who has played for the team. But it's up to you to decide who are the best players to play for the Maple Leafs. Are these guys the greatest hockey players of all time or even the best players today? That's up to you to decide but for now, take a look and vote up and down your favorite Maple Leafs of all time.
