Best Backchecker

In a time when the defensemen seem to need help and robert svehla didnt feel like coming back, the forwards should have an added responsibility to help out the blueline

vote for your best backchecker(s) on the Leafs:

you can vote for more than 1

This one's easier to vote for. I chose Reichel although Fitzgerald does an excellent job too.

Robert Reichel is my choise.... Been the best backchecker for the leafs the past 2 seasons IMO.

Fitzgerald, Stajan, Reichel, Nieuwendyk and Tucker stand out for me.

However, Antropov and Nolan are right up there too. They are both very underrated defensively in my opinion.

The Leafs forwards corpse isn't exactly strong defensively, either or Reichel, Fitzgerald would take the crown IMHO though.

Tucker is following them in third.

I know the Leafs are an older team, but come on man. That's getting a little carried away.

i wanted reichel gone, but he's doing pretty good, gotta admit

I'd agree that it's partially due to Quinn's free wheeling offensive style, but even setting that aside few Leafs fowards make much effort defensively which only serves to exacerbate a the problem of below average defensive skills.
