IMO, this team is way better than record suggests. Brian Burke has done a B+ grade job on the roster he inherited. Coaching too is one of the best. Goalies are average but workable. Forwards are talented enough to score 230 goals a season. Defense and prospects in system are of a playoff team.

The biggest bummer on this team is lack of leadership. Not lack of talent. The team went wrong way and the team leadership couldn't step up to the occasion. Leafs need someone who is a true captain. On and off the ice. It's been 40+ years since Leafs stripped C of a player; but Phaneuf doesn't look like the guy who can lead this team to glory. May be, give it to Lupul after december next year? (if he performs on ice)
