Toronto's collection of blueliners is every bit as good as Vancouver's minus Salo (who's yet to play a game anyways and puts Vancouver over the cap). The difference between the two teams -- forwards, goaltedning, and coaching.

Beauch has at least some talent, but claiming it's all the team that Beauchemin isn't preforming well doesn't fly.
Because they are rebuilding. Any team that tries to change over almost all 20 players will struggle, especially when they are one of the youngest in the league. You don't fire a GM 2 years in when he came here to rebuild a team and isn't done yet. Any Leaf fan should be pissed at the recent on-ice results, but any leaf fan on these boards has to objectively ask themsevles when talking about trades, does this make our team better?
