Leafs Would Like Toughness & Offense

from Steve Buffery of the Toronto Sun,

“We always have concerns, but to me team toughness is more important than anything,” Fletcher said. “Would we entertain getting a tough guy at some stage? Sure, but only if he could fit in and play some hockey too.

“But we’re not out there pounding the pavement or making telephone calls to see if anything’s available,” Fletcher added. “I think we can handle ourselves.”

Fletcher reiterated that it is quiet on the trade front but he is open to deal for some offence, likely giving up one of the club’s inactive defenceman, probably Ian White, who hasn’t played a regular season game as of yet, or Carlo Colaiacovo, who has been a healthy scratch for five games in a row.
