Well the first two are in the books, and if you are a Toronto Maple Leafs fan you may not like what you see.

The two big pick-ups of the offseason, Francois Beauchemin, and Mike Komisarek, have been mediocre at best.

To start off the season Komisarek has managed to stay even, but has been caught on several occasions making stupid plays, and really not reading and reacting as well as he was in Montreal.

Francois Beauchemin has been downright awful thus far, and frankly I don't know why he hasn't been benched yet. In the Montreal game he was on the ice for all four goals against, being a major contributor in the overtime loss for the Buds. As an encore performance Francois decided to play just as bad against the Caps. Of the six goals against he was on the ice for at least three, including scoring one on his own net in the second.

Now I know it's just two games into the season, but the Leafs haven't looked as sharp as they probably should be, and this should cause a little concern from the Leafs faithful.
