Team: 2020-21 Toronto Maple Leafs
Team Explanation
I'm really happy with him as a leaf (better than I expected), but he is a better winger than a c to me

Kerfoot also played well I'd like to see him get more of a scoring opportunity

Kerfoot as your 2nd line center?

If anything maybe move Nylander to center and leave Nick on the 2nd line

To be honest I thought it was good. Not as good as JT, not even close, but probably the best 2c option in the short term.

Foligno and Nylander rotated the position all night. Kinda depended on what side of the ice the face off was on. That said, it's pretty hard to adjust so quickly on a line with 3 natural wingers - Kevin Bieksa broke that down fairly well on the goal against last night.

But regardless, I love 5-1 so I'm not gonna but pick over 1 spot on the ice.

It worked though.

He’s the best option we’ve got for now.

Once they work out the kinks, I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Biggest problem with top heavy groups, not saying it’s bad having superstars but when all of them are on premium contracts it kills you with injuries.

2c in the place of injuries? Sure.

His even strength scoring is actually fine for a low end 2c (like 50th or so in the league). The only reason his scoring looks so low is he gets minimal pp time

There's no need to change anything after that game.
