The Toronto Maple Leafs ventured into this offseason with two glaring holes on the roster, or so we are told.
The first issue that the Leafs need to address is goaltending. I personally do not think so, but that is a topic for a whole other article that I will start on immediately after I finish this one.
The second issue facing the Leafs is the need for a No. 1 center.
Here is the problem when talking about No. 1 centers. When you think of one, you think of Ryan Getzlaf, Sidney Crosby, Nicklas Backstrom, Pavel Datsyuk and so on. These players are all elite and would be nice to have, but the Leafs are not a contender. Getzlaf, Crosby and Datsyuk all have won Stanley Cups and play for contenders.
