What really impresses me about the Leafs is their forward depth. They have a bunch of lines that can score on any given shift and their checking forwards are top notch. Leo Komarov is such a good pest.
Agreed, they have a lot of forward depth, but I still think they are a bad or much below average defensive team. They play such a wide open game.

And Burke, for all the flak he gets for Kessel trade, look at what he's done with that franchise. I'd take his good (Phaneuf, Gardiner, Lupul, Kadri) over his bad (Kessel trade, Tyler Biggs) any day.
