I don't see how they're any more competitive than they were. They've gotten worse.

I won't pretend that Murray's done an outstanding job, but I don't think his trades are all that bad. His biggest problem for the longest time was picking **** coaches.
Since the Phanuef trade Toronto is 8-5-2. I think they're headed in the right direction.
