Goalie vs Centre...

What do you think's our greatest need?

If we had a shot at picking up a legitimate 1st line centre, or a starting goalie which would you choose?

It seems we're in the same position with both, its hard to see where a top centre or goalie will come from without giving up a fortune to get one.

Every year we hang onto the hope of a big name UFA that ends up going elsewhere, Getzlaf will be this years.

Realistically, do you think we have a genuine shot a getting either a top centre or goalie in the next few years.. if so, where from?

Magic Unicorn via the draft. Monahan would look great in between Kessel and Lupul

Both if we plan on becoming a contender some time soon. I know the answer seems like an easy out but Leafs desperately need another Sundin and Cujo/Belfour to really catapult them into a playoff spot and really make some noise.

goalie...

you can have a horrible team if you have solid goaltending your going to compete. Look at Calgary, with a horrible roster Kipper stands on his head and keeps them competitive... that team should have been last place the last 2 seasons.

If the leafs trade for luongo (and i'm not even interested in that discussion anymore) than this team is almost a lock for the playoffs. If you look at the top 10 goalies in the NHL - all their teams are in the playoffs other than Montreal/Calgary

A goalie plays 60 minutes a night. A #1 centre plays 20.

Who has more effect on the game?

Goalie>Centre. Kessel is fine with Lupul and whoever in the middle, they'll always produce and get chances.
