Toronto Maple Leafs Questions
(Eric Engels has a lot of fun with this at Hockeybuzz, so letâ€™s bring it down to the Hot Stove minus the lowly Habs of course)
The season is approaching and preseason hockey continues to serve as an indicator for what is to come from the many new faces that comprise the â€™08-09 Leafs.
Going into the season, many questions are circulating around the struggling franchise. While expectations are low, getting embarrassed is not in the blueprint. The team could surprise, but the nucleus must take a step forward in development.
With that said, letâ€™s get down to the nitty gritty. Here are some questions for you all:
1) Will Grabovski serve as the Leafsâ€™ No.1 center, and if not, where will he find his place on the team?
2) Will Steen finally break-out this season?
3) Will Schenn be a part of the â€˜08-09 Leafs?
4) Who will serve as the Leafsâ€™ captain?
5) Which defenseman will be the odd-man out, and will it result in a trade?
6) Who will be the Leafsâ€™ top scorer?
7) How many goals and points will newcomer Kulemin produce? Will he be used on the top line?
8 ) Will Colaicovo finally stay healthy(ish)?
9) Will the Leafs make the Stanley Cup Playoffs?
10) Will Mats Sundin play for the Leafs this season?
