Brian Burke set out this off-season to make the Toronto Maple Leafs a team that won't be just be good for half a season, but will play hard for the entire season and hopefully contend for a playoff spot. He knew what he needed to do and he went out and did it.
Going into free agency, the Leafs' biggest need was a No. 1 center. While not landing the big fish in free agency, Brad Richards, Burke did well to acquire two centermen that could compete for that job and one that will provide depth to the position. He also shored up a defense that was already pretty deep.
We will have to wait until October to see what the new additions will actually bring to the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey club. For now, we can only speculate on what could be a very exciting season for Leaf fans.
