My thoughts are a guy like Jay McClement as a 3rd/4th line C (not sure if its a need, I just like him) and a guy like Clemmensen to be a steady backup for Reimer (unless Burke trades for a vet goalie like a Theodore or Backstrom).
I expect the most exciting part of free agency for the Leafs to be the chase after Justin Schultz. Some veteran grit and goaltending are really all I could see being realistic targets. I'd love Parise or Suter but I don't see either signing in Toronto. Parise will likely stick around Jersey or *shudder*
( I really hope not) and Suter will stay in the U.S. apparently (Detroit?).
Trades seem like a more exciting venture from Burke's standpoint. I doubt this is the year Burke finds a #1 C because there don't seem to be any available so solidifying the goaltending and maybe some bottom six veteran leadership and I'll consider it a solid offseason.
