The big day has come and gone.
July 1st was a fairly uneventful day for Toronto Maple Leafs fans around the world. Like many of you, I was glued to TSN's three hour coverage of "the event".
We all watched together as many of the names who we envisioned Brian Burke wooing to play in Toronto this coming season were snatched up by more active teams.
Hell, we even saw Colby Armstrong be the first to announce on his Twitter feed that he had signed a deal with his boyhood team, the Montreal Canadiens.
Leaf fans were left to debate the signings of Jay McClement and Mike Kostka. As I have said in the past, Burke certainly went in a direction that few people expected with those two signings.
However, I'm not here to argue for or against Burke's moves on July 1st just yet. It is far too early for that.
Instead, this article will examine the options that remain available to the Leafs' GM as the summer rolls on and who I feel can fill a need on the current roster. This, of course, does not take into consideration the different moves Burke might have to make to squeeze any one of these players in.
Lazy, I know. Give me a break - it's a holiday today.
