|Leafs fans are ready to name a highway after some players|
Nine defencemen remain at the Maple Leafs camp. Dion Phaneuf, John-Michael Liles, Luke Schenn, Cody Franson, and Keith Aulie are all locks. Carl Gunnarsson has played well, Jake Gardiner has played great, Matt Lashoff plays guitar, and now we think Mike Komisarek may not have a No Movement Clause. The situation is interesting to say the least for the Leafs towering defence core.
For those that do crack the starting line-up, they will no doubt be looking over their shoulder as there will be someone waiting to jump in to replace them in a Jonas Gustavsson heartbeat. Realistically though, Jake Gardiner has shown the Leafs brass that he might be ready to join the big club later in the year if there are injuries or trades, but he should be starting the season with the Marlies
Who do you think will be patrolling the blueline on October 6th?
