They arent tough to play against either really, Phaneuf throws big hits and thats about it, the forward group is pretty soft too. I'm just surprised this hasnt been addressed because it seems like Orr's time with the leafs is done. Burkie left them with arguably the softest line up in the league
They aren't that soft, nor were they. Brown, Orr, Rosehill, Schenn, Komisarek, Phaneuf all there last year. Schenn and Rosehill are out this year but they aren't pushovers. The real issue is their top 6 is softer than warm butter.
