Yes, that's right. The Toronto Maple Leafs resemble that fat kid who can't jump the fence. Why? They try, but fail...miserably. Their defense is horrendous, it's like they don't even have a defensive game plan. We have the most expensive defense in the league and what do we have to show for it? Last in the league in the goals against department. This team is inept with the term c-o-n-s-i-s-t-e-n-t-c-y, they follow up two strong road games with a 7-1 score against the Capitals and once again, disappointed the fans at the ACC. This will not change either, a trade HAS to be done if we want to attain the playoffs. And it has to be on defense. How can you not see these gaffes? It's like watching a kid with boots trying to play defense against Sidney Crosby. It's sad, embarrassing, somewhat humorous, and certainly depressing.
But where to start? I'll tell you where. Pavel Kubina or Ian White. Firstly, I like Ian White, I truly do, but his defensive game is questionable at best and his offense is not needed for this team, especially considering he's behind a flock of others. Swap Ian White with a defensive d-man and it's a start, we'll still suck but I guarantee you we'd see better results, as would VeTo and Raycroft. And then there's Pavel Kubina, a player who just juggles my emotions night in, night out. He'll play a good game and then follow it up with an absolutely horrendous game, especially defensively. And on top of that, he's not needed... at all! His specialty is the PP, and guess what, he's getting numero deux PP time. If it's possible to trade his huge ass salary for any kind of defensive d-man, do it JFJ! For the love of god! If the Leafs can somehow manage trading both of them for two defensive defense-man that would be gold... pure gold.
Thanks for reading my vent, amigo's.
