The Leafs took five penalties during the season opener, but killed them all off.
Their penalty-killing unit was terrible last year, so the arrival of Philippe Dupuis and David Steckel should greatly help the PK.
Both are proven penalty killers, with Steckel also being an excellent faceoff man.
If memory serves, he won about 75 percent of his draws during the game.
The last time the Leafs got a "proven PK guy" in Fredrik Sjostrom, it didn't go quite as planned. This time, however, they've seen the two new guys in action already,
The Leafs' PK can't get much worse than it was last year, but surely it'll get better with Dupuis and Steckel, not to mention guys like Mike Brown and Tyler Bozak.
The big question is: how much will it improve?
