Before Lupul returned, this was the first, second and third biggest need for the Leafs.
Now it's just No. 1.
The Leafs currently sit at 112 goals, good for second in the NHL behind the Pittsburgh Penguins. Pretty good company you can say.
However, I believe the Leafs could still use some extra firepower up front for the playoff push.
All the Leaf centers are small by NHL center standards, and for the most part, the wingers are small for NHL standards as well, with only James Van Riemsdyk standing over 6'3" and tipping the scales at over 200 pounds.
That lack of size is apparent against bigger teams such as the Boston Bruins, whom the Leafs finally beat 3-2 last Saturday, and lost in a shootout to on the following Monday night.
Grabovski, for over $5 million a season, has been a bitter disappointment up front, and his linemates haven't really scored at a high pace either. Something has got to give.
Fact of the matter is, when push comes to shove, the Leafs' elite goal scorers just aren't big enough, just aren't strong enough to take the constant thrashing and constant pressure of playoff-caliber hockey.
Players to Target: Ryane Clowe, Nik Antropov, Brad Boyes, Mike Ribeiro, Derek Roy and yes, Jaromir Jagr would be a good addition too.
So there you have it. The Leafs cannot target all of these needs, but look for at least one or two of them to be addressed. Feel free to comment on which ones you'd like to see get addressed Wednesday.
