I like the idea of shifting to a more offensive up tempo style myself, but the Leafs take it to far. I know their goaltending sucks but it's easy for mediocre goaltending to look even worse without help. Look at the Flyers for another example of goalies being made to look worse by what is in front of them. You need guys who can protect the net.

Despite all the doom talk I think our D is on the right track, whatever money we have this summer needs to be used to find a stay at home Gill replacement who can actually play a bit of hockey.
