Toronto Maple Leafs’ Slide in Standings May Be Due to Lack of Toughness on Defense (Video)

Since jumping out to a hot start this season, the Leafs have fallen back to the pack and currently sit sixth in the Eastern Conference — just three points ahead of the ninth-place New York Rangers.

Check out the debate in the video above.
