Question Period - Leafs Edition
The Toronto Maple Leafs continue its descent to the Eastern Conference basement. Now one loss shy from matching its eight-game losing steak of last season, which resulted in a 29th place finish, the Leafs are a carcass for the hockey world to tear apart.
Fire this guy, trade this guy, call-up this guy, demote this guy or put this guy on a different line... we've heard it all from the analysts. Now I want to hear what the Leafs' faithful have to say about their team's free-fall in the standings.
So, without further ado, here's 10 questions for you all:
1) Should Ron Wilson get fired? Explain.
2) Is it time for Nazem Kadri to play for the Leafs? Or should he remain in the American Hockey League and continue to develop?
3) If the Leafs are to trade one of its defensemen, who would you choose between Mike Komisarek, Francois Beauchemin and Tomas Kaberle? Why?
4) Who should Brian Burke target to help end the Leafs' dismal scoring-drought?
5) Is a trade even necessary right now? If not, why?
6) Do you think Dion Phaneuf and Tomas Kaberle would benefit offensively from an upgraded top-six unit?
7) Will the line combinations of Kulemin-Grabovski-Kessel and MacArthur-Bozak-Versteeg help light a fire under the Leafs?
8 ) If Burke waits until the off-season to bolster the forward ranks, are the playoffs still attainable?
9) Do you think Kris Versteeg will develop into a 60-point player in Toronto? Or has Burke already lost the trade?
10) By the end of the 2010-11 season, who will no longer don the Blue and White, in your opinion?
