[Thursday's FTB] Deadline Dust Settles

John Grieshop

Things could have been worse.

I think most of us are on the same page: the Leafs do not need goaltending, and it's a very good thing that the team didn't give up any kind of assets to acquire one. The team does however, need defensive help, and it's just a little unfortunate that Ryan O'Byrne was the only defender acquired by the team. Could have been worse.
