Elliotte Friedman reveals that the Leafs ‘really wanted’ Matt Dumba on July 1st: Leafs Morning Take

On a scale of 1 to 10, how do you feel about this Leafs team right now?
I’m at about a 4.
They cannot play a lick of defence. It’s borderline scary, and Halloween’s long gone.
At any rate, we kicked off the Thursday edition of Leafs Morning Take on a light note by discussing William Nylander’s method of transportation to Thursday night’s game. In case you missed it, he took the TTC, which is so William Nylander. It provided a good laugh. And good on him; he was very noticeable once again against Ottawa.
Presented by DoorDash, The Appetizer focused on the ugly 6-3 loss in this year’s first instalment of the Battle of Ontario. John Klingberg had another rough night. Speaking of which, it sounds like he could be a healthy scratch for Friday night’s game against Calgary. Additionally, we did cover a few positives: Nick Robertson potted his first of the season and Nylander extended his point streak to 13 games. But yeah, understandably so, we talked a lot about Toronto’s defensive issues. Sheldon Keefe’s post-game remarks were very telling —that’s for sure.
After that, brought to you by SOBER CARPENTER, we welcomed in Elliotte Friedman for an all-encompassing chat about the current state of the team. Over the course of the nearly 15-minute interview, we were able to touch on all the pertinent topics such as John Klingberg, Ryan Reaves, Sheldon Keefe, and if the Leafs are looking to make a trade. Hell, I even got a Patrick Kane question in there. As per usual, Friedge dropped a ton of Leafs related nuggets worthy of your viewing/listening time.
