Brayden Schenn actually addresses zero needs for the Leafs. They've got plenty of 3rd line centres including one of Tyler Bozak/Tim Connolly, Matt Lombardi, and Jay McClement.

As for the right side / left side crap... most defencemen in the NHL are perfectly capable of playing both without any adverse affects on their game. Yeah, all other things being equal the Leafs would prefer a right shot, but not all other things are equal.
This is why Leafs fans get a bad rep around here. Schenn addresses zero Leaf needs? Well then, they must be the only team in the league that has no need for a potential top six center who's game has been compared to some of the great two way players in the game.
