Its more laughable LL because all the fanbase does is say how much they NEED a number one center. You're one of the more reasonable Leaf fans, so I'll ask you, what/who is that elusive "number one center" youre looking for? I've now seen proposals for both Staals, Lecavalier, Krejci, Stasny all turned down (a lot were horrible for the Leafs, but a lot were also good value too), and I'm just at a loss of what the fanbase expects to get..

Everyone is too old, cap hit is too much, arent a "true number one center." Number one centers dont grow on trees, you know how many centers went 80+ points? SIX in the entire league. What are you looking for? A 25 year old PPG center with great hands, world class speed, great playmaker, a great contract and snipe for a shot? I'm sorry, everyone else in the league is too.

This is a great deal for the Leafs, hed be your best offensive center immediately.
