After they returned to the playoffs last season, the Toronto Maple Leafs are team ripe for regression due to inflated percentages that typically dont carry over from one year to the next. As such, the appeal of some Leafs is likely lower than expected. Top Picks: In the last two seasons, RW Phil Kessel has 134 points, ranking fifth, and over the last five seasons his 155 goals ranks ninth. Even with plus-minus issues (minus-47 over the last four seasons), hes worth a spot among the top handful of fantasy right wingers. D Dion Phaneuf, the Leafs captain, has plenty of critics, but hes productive. In the last three years, hes one of three defencemen to have at least 100 points and 200 penalty minutes (Zdeno Chara and P.K. Subban are the others). If not PIMs, Phaneuf is also a hitter, with 725 over the last four seasons. There are constant questions about whether Phaneuf is worthy of being designated as a number one defenceman for the Maple Leafs, but his numbers indicate hes just fine as a No. 1 defenceman for fantasy owners. Value Plays: The popular notion, when it comes to C Nazem Kadri, is that hes a young player who scored 44 points in 48 games last season, so he should be on the rise, but its not quite as simple as that. For one thing, Kadri scored on 16.8% of his shots last season, an inordinately high percentage and, more importantly, those on the ice with him at even-strength scored on 14.44% of their shots, the highest rate for any forward in the league. Its also a clear indication that regression ought to be coming and even if Kadri plays more than the 16 minutes per game he played last season, the odds are in favour of the regression having stronger effect. This doesnt mean Kadri is a bad player; it means hes not necessarily a point-per-game player yet. While were beating that regression drum, LW Joffrey Lupul has 85 points in 82 games over the last two seasons, scoring on 15.5% of his shots, which is well above his career mark of 11.5%. As an example of what kind of effect that would have, knocking Lupuls shooting percentage down from 15.5% to 11.5% over the last two seasons, it would give him 28 goals instead of 36. We can also see that, even in his small sample of 17 games last season, Lupul had an absurdly high on-ice shooting percentage that is bound to come down. With regression and injuries both factors in his projection, Lupul likely comes in lower than expected in my projections. LW James van Riemsdyk had a nice first season in Toronto, his 0.67 points per game representing a career-high, while playing 19:12 per game, four minutes more than he had played the year before in Philadelphia. Its reasonable to expect further development from van Riemsdyk, whose career highs to this point are 21 goals and 40 points. The signing of RW David Clarkson came with much fanfare, and much concern regarding the length of his contract, but in the last two seasons, only Clarkson and Scott Hartnell have scored at least 40 goals while recording at least 200 penalty minutes. His limited scoring upside makes Clarkson a No. 4 fantasy winger, though he would move up a notch in leagues that include penalty minutes. Still trying to negotiate a new contract, restricted free agent D Cody Franson had a breakthrough season for the Leafs in 2013, tying a career-high with 29 points, even though he played in only 45 games. If hes healthy and signed, Franson has a chance to be a No. 3 fantasy defenceman, but until he signs, its tough to place too much stock in his production. Centering Phil Kessel is a factor that makes C Tyler Bozak worth keeping an eye on, but he hasnt been productive enough to have fantasy value in most leagues. He was one of six forward to play more than 900 minutes last season and finish with fewer than 30 points. Sleepers/Breakthrough: Stuck in the minors or the press box too often last season, D Jake Gardiner is a tremendous skater who should play a top-four role. He had 30 points in 75 games as a rookie in 2011-2012 and should be able to get back to that level provided he stays healthy. By going out to acquire G Jonathan Bernier, and then signing him to a new contract that isnt for backup money, the Maple Leafs have indicated their intention coming into the season. While there are many reports from those that think Bernier is due the opportunity to be a starting goalie in the league, he has a .912 save percentage in 62 career games, which only seems okay. If you really want to dig deep, check out D Paul Ranger, making his return to the NHL for the first time since October, 2009. Ranger scored a career-high 31 points, while playing a career-high 25:13, in 2007-2008 Rookies: He may end up back in junior for another season, but 19-year-old Morgan Rielly could put pressure on the Leafs to make a decision. When he reaches the league for keeps, hes going to produce points, but even if Rielly does manage to stay in the NHL as a teen.

Anderson will make his Toronto debut Saturday night when the Argonauts (1-1) host a short-handed Calgary squad at Rogers Centre. The Stampeders will be minus running back Cornish — the CFLs outstanding player last year — and receivers Nik Lewis (both concussion symptoms) and Maurice Price (broken hand). Catch the game live on TSN as part of a doubleheader starting at 6:30pm et/3:30pm pt. But Anderson, who helped Calgary (1-0) win the 2008 Grey Cup, isnt feeling sorry for his former team. "Not at all," Anderson said. "You cant feel sorry for nobody in this league because at the end of the day nobody is going to feel sorry for you. "Theyre going to line up and come after you so youve got to be prepared for whatever they throw at you." Canadian Matt Walter and American Jock Sanders will split running back duties against Toronto while Joe West comes off the injured list to line up at receiver. The offensive line also receives a boost with the return of tackle Dan Federkeil. "Over the years if you look at Calgary theyve had a lot of injuries and a lot of guys have stepped in and done well," Anderson said. "Cornish is down but (Walter and Sanders) are going to share the load. "Nik went down, Joe West stepped in. Theyre not leaving too much firepower out, theyre bringing in firepower so youve got to be on your toes. Thats what Ive told these guys here, theyre a vertical team. Bo (starter Bo Levi Mitchell) has a strong arm and can scramble." Anderson, 33, will start at halfback with just one week of practice under his belt. Toronto acquired the eight-year veteran Monday from the Saskatchewan Roughriders, just two days after defeating the defending Grey Cup champions 48-15 at Rogers Centre. To add insult to injury, Anderson endured the lopsided loss on his 33rd birthday. But Anderson said his transition in Toronto has been seamless because the Argos defence is very similar to the one he played in while with the Montreal Alouettes (2011-12). Toronto defensive co-ordinator Tim Burke held the same post with Montreal from 2008-10 and although hed left La Belle Province by the time Anderson arrived, the Alouettes still used many of Burkes defensive principles when Anderson was with them. "Its been busy, a lot of running around (since trade) but as far as the playbook goes it pretty much came back to me from the Montreal days," Anderson said. "I think the coaches were kind of surprised I picked it up so quickly but (when) youve been in this game long enough nothing is too difficult." Argos head coach Scott Milanovich is hoping the vocal Anderson, whos regarded as the CFLs top trash talker, can be a positive contributor to Torontos young, inexperienced defence. "Dwights an intelligent player," Milanovich said. &quuot;I expect Dwight to be what hes always been, and thats a playmaker, aggressive, emotional.dddddddddddd. "I think our defence could use a little of that. Dwights somebody you have to account for and always know where hes at because he can change the game. You make one mistake, he can take it the other way." Milanovich said the Argos cant afford take Calgary for granted. "If we think the fact Jon isnt playing can give us an opportunity to relax, thats going to burn us," Milanovich said. "Calgary has proven over the years their depth is as good as anybodys. "Theyve always been able to slip guys in, even at quarterback, and still have success and not miss a beat. They (Argos players) know how much I respect this team and this coaching staff and anybody who has been in the league long enough should have the same respect for them." Toronto is also hurting offensively as receivers Andre Durie (clavicle) and Jason Barnes (knee) wont play. Rookies Anthony Coombs — the Argos 14 first-round draft pick — and Darvin Adams will step in at slotback and wide receiver, respectively. Defensively, Matt Ware returns at cornerback from the injured list while safety Jermaine Gabriel gets a second straight start with incumbent Matt Black injured. Milanovich said, like Calgary, the Argos have always managed to get solid play from their backups and hes expecting the same Saturday. "Its become the expectation here with the players in the locker-room," Milanovich said. "It doesnt necessarily make you feel all that warm and fuzzy but Ive got to the point where I trust that the next guy is going to step up and do his job and I think a large part of that is how our team handles it. "They dont blink, they have faith in the guys next to them. I expect those guys to play well." Both starting quarterbacks are coming off solid performances. Torontos Ricky Ray threw for 407 yards and three touchdowns against Saskatchewan last weekend. Mitchell finished 16-of-25 passing for 313 yards and two TDs in a season-opening 29-8 win over Montreal on June 28. The Stamps had a bye last week. Mitchell is 4-0 as a starter but Anderson said the Calgary quarterback is a dual threat. "Bo is a scrambler," he said. "If things break down he can get out on the edge . . . stay with your guy and lock on because what hes looking for once he starts scrambling is that open receiver when they go to their scramble offence. "But if you lock on and let the front do their work then everything will be all right." Mitchell will make his third career start on the road and said he relishes playing away from McMahon Stadium. "Its harder to win on the road and I think thats why I take such a challenge to it," he said. "I think theres nothing better in football than silencing a stadium . . . its a great feeling."
