Quote from: Frycer14 on January 23, 2020, 08:08:51 PMI just checked out the standings. The Leafs are in serious trouble trying to make back ground on teams like Carolina and Florida with an already poor defence pretty much decimated... Reilly was having a bad year, but despite that he was probably still their best overall defenceman. Muzzin isn't going to be at full speed for weeks. If I was a leafs fan, I'd hope that by the trade deadline, if they aren't in a playoff position, at the very least they trade Barrie to recoup a first round pick. For them to miss and have given up all of those picks is a disaster; I wonder if pride won't get in the way of cutting bait.

This is not an either/or situation. It's a both/and. Andersen hasn't been as good as he has been in the past, which is concerning, but his stretch of weaker play has really just meant the Leafs are paying for their defensive issues more. They give up a lot of high danger scoring chances (8th most in the league, per Natural Stat Trick), and, with Freddie not playing at as high a level as we've become accustomed to, more of them are finding their way into the net.
