Besides Defense the biggest issue with Toronto is that they have too many scoring star style players. That sounds weird I know. Just like when Edmonton has Hall, Nugent Hopkins, Eberle, Puls.
You have Taveres, Matthews, Nyalnder, Marner. Too much money wrapped up in 4 players. You need some mid range players with grit and character.
Crazy idea but if I were Toronto I would trade Tavares. And put a better supporting cast around Matthews. And sure up the team. You only need one line of superstars.
Marchand, Bergeron, Pastanak
Ranntinen, McKinnon, Landegskog
Nylander, Matthews, Marner
Then the 2nd line should be just below that skill level at a cheaper price.
Remember the year that the Rangers has Lindros, Messier, Bure, Holik, Nedved, Kovalev. Too many stars don’t work.
