Question Period - Leafs Edition

**Inspired by Eric Engels' question blogs**

After a night of burning Montreal Canadiens jerseys in celebration of the Toronto Maple Leafs' 3-0 victory, here's a list of questions for you all to answer.

1) Jonas Gustavsson, who turned away eight shots in the first period en route to a combined shutout with Joey Macdonald, appears to be OK after experiencing an elevated heart level last night. Do you think he will play against the Columbus Blue Jackets, or has Macdonald's play warranted a start on Thursday?

2) Matt Stajan has 10 points in his last 10 games played. However, the majority of Leafs Nation are not impressed with his overall game and feel he's the beneficiary of a talented linemate (Phil Kessel). Do you think Brian Burke should trade Stajan before he's an unrestricted free agent this summer?

3) What are your thoughts on Christian Hanson thus far? Does he deserve a spot on this team?

4) Jason Blake (two goals) and Lee Stempniak (11 points) continue to struggle. Is it time Burke puts his foot down, or should he ride it out considering the Leafs have been improving of late?

5) The Leafs are now seven points back of a playoff spot. Do you think it's realistic to be back in the race for eight place before Christmas?

6) How much has Mike Komisarek improved?

7) On a related note, should the Leafs appoint a new team captain soon? Would would you pick between Komisarek, Tomas Kaberle and Francois Beauchemin?

8 ) What do the Leafs have to do to improve the powerplay, which went from being ranked first to 10th in a matter of weeks?

9) On a scale of 1 to 10, how epic was it to see the Habs get shutout in their own arena?

10) On the same scale, how badass is Colton Orr? Not only did he score the game-winning goal, folks, but he's sporting a porn 'stache. Yeah... enough said.
