This^^^^^. The leafs are a "one and done" type team, their only real weapon is their speed in the offensive zone, if they're given room to skate they are a very dangerous team to play against. However, when teams take away their space by either clogging up the NZ or by laying the body on, the leafs come undone and have no way of fighting back. The leafs aren't big and they lack heart which means they can't dish it back, not to mention they are very weak along the wall which leads to turnovers and them being in their own end which leads to the REAL problem which is lack of defense.
