They need a physical defenceman badly, or else they will get royally lit up.

Actually they have 3 Physical D's.

1.Bryan McCabe- Plus willing to drop the gloves once in a while.

2.Wade Belak- Always willing to drop the gloves.

3.Aki Berg- Plays the body well.

do the leafs have the oldest team in the league now?

Not even close.

They got rid of Francis (42), Leetch (37), Johansson (38), Nieuwendyk (38), Roberts (39), Fitzgerald (37), Reichel (34), Renberg (33), Marchment (36) - so far & Kidd (33).

Replaced them all with younger players: Alexander Steen (21), Jeff O'Neill (29), Eric Lindros (32), Jason Allison (30), Alex Khavanov (33), Mikael Tellqvist (25) (or J.S. Aubin, whoever wins the backup job) & Carlo Colaiacovo (22).

They have gotten much younger, and aren't nearly the oldest team in the league anymore.

Actually they have 3 Physical D's.

1.Bryan McCabe- Plus willing to drop the gloves once in a while.

2.Wade Belak- Always willing to drop the gloves.

Yes, McCabe is a physical defenceman, but he's their only one.

Belak? Defence? That's a scary combo for ol' cement feet Wade.

Berg is as soft as a down pillow. As ol Harold Ballard once said of Inge Hammarstrom, can be applied to Berg, "He could go into a corner with half a dozen eggs in his pocket, and not break any of them!"

Berg has size, and lots of it, but he rarely, if ever, uses it.

I was listening to Stumpy on MOJO and he said himself he was willing to play for the minimum salary, and that he would love to finish his career with the Leafs, but they have not made a formal offer to him. He has had contact with the Leafs management and expressed his interest to play for Toronto, but Ferguson will contact him prior to training camp if they decide to give him that opportunity.
