Assessing the Criticality of This Offseason



While this is Treliving's initial offseason with the Leafs, it is shaping up to be one of his most impactful with the franchise. He is tasked with guiding a team to the Stanley Cup, a team that has struggled to reach this pinnacle despite its considerable talent.

In his bid to find the perfect additions to the Leafs' roster, Treliving has chosen to say goodbye to notable players such as Ryan O'Reilly, Michael Bunting, and Luke Schenn. In their stead, he has welcomed Bertuzzi, Max Domi, Ryan Reaves, and John Klingberg to the fold.


With this reshuffling, the Leafs now boast more players who have the grit and determination for playoff-style hockey, increasing hopes for the team to claim their Cup victory.
