explain how the leafs have more and or better assets on their team and in their system.
Senators top six forwards > leafs top six forwards
ill do a quick breakdown on how im grading it(doesnt mean im right jy my two cents)
wilson seems to have the upper hand by a large margin. Toronto has less talent, more points,and i love the system they are playing
management - well now who the hell knows wtf burke will do but fletcher was running a good ship, shows he isnt afraid of making deals where the sens never make that deal to put them over the top
players obviously with heatley, spezza, alfi they have a ton of talent... but talent doesn't always mean wins. This core has never played to their potential besides when they made to to the finals which they rode a goalie they decided to throw under the bus eventually. Their secondary scoring is horrible and nothing is ever done to address it(minor fixes but about it)
They wont move a guy like alfi or spezza for a ton of prospects or players or anything so they arent touchable assets.
cap room toronto has much more
youth toronto has a ton of youth playing, and still winning games
so basically since toronto has accepted to go the route of youth, with the youth, coaching and so on i just think toronto is in a better situation
as ive stated before. If
Ottawa would be willing to trade alfredson, spezza, phillips, build around heatley, volchenkov, lee and so on then they would be in a hell of a much better situation... they could get the world for some of these players....
i just dont see them ever be willing to do that
