That is because they have no top end talent. I never advocated for a team made only of gudpro types. Doesn't mean they have no value on a hockey team. The Leafs are made up of a bunch of skilled soft players and are on pace to miss the playoffs. Maybe the best option is to have a mix of both?sens added a whole lotta gudpro this offseason.
they're on pace for 52pts.
He seems kinda soft to me. Not sure what's so gudpro about him. He's a gudpro in the same way that Kerfoot is a gudpro. Works hard, buzzes around, but not particularly a rugged puck possession/cycling beast. Quite the opposite really. He's soft and not all that skilled.Is Brown really a better gud pro than the guys we kept over him though? He's tougher and more physical than Hyman, Moore, MIkheyev, Goat?
That's the path. Brown giving them 8 minutes a game isn't going to suddenly make this team a tough, bruising gudpro team. In fact, it just makes their 4th line worse like he has done for the last 2 years. And softer.Maybe he could have beat out Tima/Spezza for 8 mins a game.
