Topic: With the offseason moves made, is Toronto a serious contender to win the cup?
-Last season Toronto struggled heavily in the defensive category having only one or two solid defensive players.
Did Toronto fix their defensive struggle with the moves they made this season?
Will Marner get resigned, get signed by another team, pull a Nylander, or play overseas?
Do you think Toronto should stop trading away draft picks (especially first and second-round picks)?
If you had to give Toronto's offseason a grade, what would it be? (A, B, C, D, F)

I do believe Toronto is a serious contender to win the cup. They were one big piece away and that piece was another top 4 defenseman. Their defence is pretty much league average now, if not better. The only question i have is the #6 spot, but i'm sure they'll find someone good enough. Holl, Harpur, whoever. But they'll need to get another guy to play at the start of the season with Dermott's injury. I think they're still a playoff team without Dermott, and if they make it, he'll be back for the playoffs, so i don't think that's a big problem, like Zach Hyman on forward. Their forward group is also still pretty good.
Yes, the defence is way better IMO. Barrie is a huge add for them. I also think Ceci is a bit underrated and i think he's a top-6 defenseman.
I think Marner signs with Toronto. I just can't see anything else happening.
Not sure about the picks. Depends how they're playing at the deadline.
Probably a B. They added Barrie which is huge, and moving out guys like Marleau, at least they got cap space doing that.
How do you leave a thumbs down? A dislike? Those don't exist. When you say "posts like this" if you mean questions like this about a team, i think you should keep making them, but it's up to you.
