Steve Simmons weighed in on how old the Leafs are.
It must be working, though. They’re leading Ottawa 2-1 in the series and have two shut-outs. That’s not bad.
Old players aren’t necessarily a liability in the playoffs. I’d rather have a thirty- or even forty-something defenseman on my team then a rookie. Well-conditioned defenseman only get better with age. But the Leafs are having a lot of success with older forwards. It’s really interesting stuff up in Toronto.
