We have good young talent from the draft: Jonas, DD, Andrea(not so young but still a draft pick), Ross etc..

There's a core in place for the raptors, the leafs don't have a core.
dude are you serious? Have you not watched the games this year? Two of the 4 players you mentioned are completely unproven (even thought i really like Val) and 95% of the fanbase is praying to have one of them traded.

I'm not saying the Leafs core is great or better or anything, but there is a collection of good players there. Kessel, Lupul (who i absolutely love and whose injury was the main reason the team collapsed), Gardiner, Grabovski. Those are some nice players man.

If you think the Raptors are in a significantly better position than the leafs than i think you are a massive homer.
