I agree, I don't think they'll win a round if they have to play Florida or Tampa. But unless they were going to get someone like John Gibson or Semyon Varlomov, there weren't really any good goalies on the market so acquiring a defenseman made the most sense, and they got probably the best fit that was on the open market. And I know that you think they need a forward, but Toronto has one of the best offenses in the league, but a slightly below average defense/goaltending, so I'm not sure I agree.


TOR

That's the one argument I've never really gotten. Outside of being a bellow than average Rush defensive team (which yes Gio will help with that) this has been a goalie situation and not getting saves. Can they be better/harder in front of the net, yes, but that just takes 'will'. Which they have as they shown with their consecutive games of 30 plus hits a game, something they never do. It's just a mindset.

Scoring goals at 5v5 has been a REAL issue come playoff time, yes the can do it in the regular season but it always dries up come playoff time when teams just focus in on the top 4. I am cool to be on this island by myself, but IMO adding a true top 6 fwd was a must. I am tired of the experimenting in the top 6

Agreed, who knows what was out there and at what cost, just Kyle put a lot of faith in this group. Guess we will see

I always said his value was 2nd + 3rd, but I said Habs would only trade him for 1st + 3rd, and they got more.

I don't think any team wants to play Florida or Tampa or Boston. Dream scenario is Toronto drops to the 1st wild card spot and Florida/Tampa/Boston beat Carolina for 1st in the east. Then we go through the metro. Let the atlantic kill each other


Quoting: Saskleaf
Yes. It's funny, but Toronto is honestly better off being in a wildcard spot than 3rd. That's when you know the divisions are uneven.


Kind of want to play Florida
