Toronto has basically pushed forward without having a #1 Center, or a #1 Goalie. It's also debatable whether or not Phaneuf is a #1 Defenseman as well.
Fair enough. I think we'll see a more competitive roster next year, in the sense that it's hard to get worse than 29th. I don't see a couple of FA moves pushing us into the playoffs, however.
