Hey guys, i’m back with some more thoughts about my favourite sports team on planet earth, the Toronto Maple Leafs.
This article is just my dream wish list for the off season. Not saying this is even remotely possible, simply what my ideal off season would be for the Maple Leafs.
First and foremost I hope the Leafs win the draft lottery and select Auston Matthews. Second as has been well publicized I would love to see Steven Stamkos as the next Captain of the Maple Leafs.
After those additions I think the Leafs need to find a legit #1 goaltender. Perhaps a guy like Fredrik Anderson could be an upgrade on Jonathan Bernier and comes from a winning franchise In the Anaheim Ducks.
With the rumoured addition of Nikita Zaitsev from The KHL and his top 4 potential I think the D will be set next season.
My final addition is one that nobody has spoken about. That is adding a player who will possibly be a Unrestricted Free Agent in Milan Lucic. This is the type of player this young team could use. Big, strong, powerful and most importantly he is INTIMIDATING!
The young Leafs roster is filled with skill. Mitch Marner and William Nylander could benefit greatly from having some protection wearing the blue and white. Modern day enforcers virtually are non-existent. Lucic is arguably one of the toughest guys in the NHL and on top of that toughness and intimidation he can also score 25 goals a season.
Well that’s it for this edition, as I said this is very much wishful thinking and just posting my ideal off season for my favourite team.
