Its not all about skill in this league. The leaf grinders like Rosehill are useless and not even close to what guys like Cooke or Avery should i say offer to a team. Armstrong started the first couple games of the seasonw well and with injuries became quite useless, and he is the only guy that when he want playing at a higher level can be thrown in the mix of toughness, character and skill. Its funny this is what Burke MO is but yet they have the most mellow team on planet earth.
You are right, the Leafs have a lack of character right now. That said, character is the primary attribute they drafted in the past 3 years. You really have to take a future outlook on stuff like that because the only thing you can change quickly is how you approach the future through the draft. Most character guys in the NHL today are held on tight by their respective hockey clubs.
