Sure, you could start hyping up how some players may improve and how you're going to fix the problems, but every team is going to do that. At the end of the day you resort to the undisputable things.
Having a shoddy goaltender has a huge affect on the rest of the team. Dmen start to play 'safe' & second guess themselves, forwards tend to play deeper in their own zone. Playing in front of weak goaltending forces these guys to play less confidently, and that in itself puts the Leafs as a team at a major disadvantage.
IF Burke brought in a Luongo, Backstrom, Thomas, etc.. IMO you would see the Leafs players playing a lil more confidently just knowing they didnt have to constantly cover their goalies 'arse'.
Top-6 center (not neccesarily a #1 center, just a solid top-6 guy, ex.Weiss, Krejci, Roy, etc)
