Forum: NHLil y a 22 heures <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Alfie11</b></div><div>I’ll start by saying I do agree, the stars need to produce and injuries shouldn’t be an excuse, but not being able to play defense without Muzzin has been a repeated issue, and Muzzin is fairly injury prone (injured now, injured against the Habs, injured against Columbus). Bringing in a guy like Chiarot wouldn’t be the worst idea for the Leafs to stabilize their bottom pair (might even move one of Chiarot/Muzzin to the right side) and have a guy that can log top 4 minutes in case of an injury. I don’t think he’s worth Robertson+1st or anything crazy, but from a purely “would this be beneficial” standpoint I think that’s definitely something the Leafs should be looking into. That and a better 3C than Kampf, it would be nice if they had someone that doesn’t make you claw your eyes if they have to play in the top 6 and could get some consistent secondary scoring if the big 4 do dry up (Kase was a great pick up, and I love him and Spezza, but you do need another reliable scoring option in the bottom 6 that can be counted on to contribute a couple goals over the course of a 7-game series imo, and I don’t trust Kampf, Mikheyev, or Engvall to be that guy).</div></div>
I wholeheartedly agree with the vast majority of this. I just didn't take to the earlier notion that injuries, or more-so a lack of preparation for them, has been what's plagued the Leafs. Obviously losing good players is never ideal, but the guys who were still playing were more than capable of pulling through and they just didn't.
