How Many Will The Leafs Win?

Get use to this look behind the bench…the next 20 could be very difficult for Wilson and his staff.

The unofficial (pre Olympic break) and official trade deadlines have come and gone.  While I would have expected Burke to have moved pending UFA’s like Primeau and Exelby…net, net, he did a pretty good job clearing the deck…In fact, moving non UFA’s like Blake and Hagman was an unexpected bonus.  I won’t comment further on the moves – TSM will be posting a deadline summary.  One thought did occur to me….did anyone else notice that the two defencemen that we picked up both played NCAA hockey?  I wonder if what I previously viewed as a creative strategy is really an obsession.  We may not have a ton of on ice talent right now but we certainly have the most educated one.

Anway…the question we pose tonight is; with the following line-up, how many wins do you think will get over the remaining 20?
