Question Period – Leafs Edition
*Inspired by Eric Engelsâ€™ format over at HockeyBuzz. Great stuff.*
Ten questions as you soak in another disappointing overtime loss, this time against the Tampa Bay Lightning. If thereâ€™s anyone to blame, itâ€™s that bitch known as Lady Luck.
1)Â Â Is Jonas Gustavsson now in sole possession of the starting role in Toronto? How many games will he start this season?
2)Â Â Do you think Vesa Toskala will be shipped by the Trade Deadline? Will he have any value by then?
3)Â Â Do you think Phil Kessel should stay on a line with Matt Stajan and Jason Blake, or should Ron Wilson try to surround him with different players?
4)Â Â How many goals will Kessel pot this season?
5)Â Â Have you been impressed with Mike Komisarekâ€™s defensive game of late? Or do you think some improvement is still in order?
6) Â Which players need to step up in terms of overall performance?
8 ) What about Victor Stalberg? Is it time to recall the â€œSwedish Rocketâ€?
9)Â Â Do you think Brian Burke needs to make a trade to shake-up the team? Does the offence or defense need upgrading?
10) Will the Leafs make the playoffs?
11) On a scale of 1 to 10, how epic fail is the nickname â€œThe Gooseâ€ for Gustavsson?
You stay classy, MLHS.
