i'd rather them go on about right handed defenseman for a while longer. if they'd gotten a rhd, suddenly it wouldn't have mattered anymore.
I’m sure it would’ve continued though. Toronto media (and Montreal media for that matter) always finds something to nitpick or complain about. I remember in 2018-19 the habs media was constantly complaining about the 4th line for a good chunk of the season.
How is this NOT a win for Toronto? They got a RHD man who gets 35-40 plus points a season. Doesn't miss many games at all and is 30 years old and they gave him a slight increase from his prior contract salary at only 5 million per for 4 years which is the PRIME timeframe for the Maple Leafs to make a run at the Cup which they haven't won since 1967. In addition, he doesn't replace Morgan Reilly on the top pairing and now he can be the right hand man (literally) for Miiko Lehtonen who they recently signed from the KHL. And they have VERY promising Young Ready to play Left and Right D man who are cheap for the 3rd pairing. I'd say this is a very good signing by the Maple Leafs and little man Dubas.
