Still need major surgery on that core. 

Definitely, I thought that at the start of the season, they need to rip it apart and put it back together. 

 

They have the pieces and assets to build a Cup team, but they need a major overhaul on how everything fits together.

That’s uh, quite steep. Just turned 31, average offensively, skating already slowing down. 
 

I get he a good defenseman but that’s a lot of money per year for a LHD when you have no RH options 

To be fair they only have one legit LD option. Signing any d-man that can actually play is a win for Toronto, regardless of them being LD. I like Muzzin and 5.6 isn't too bad. He's a better Tanev and Toronto desperately needs players like Muzzin. Leader, good for 21ish minutes a game, decent-good offensive production. Hard to complain about this deal.

If they are deciding to run a top pair of Reilly - Muzzin then they should be fine. However, if they are planning to have Muzzin play on the 2nd pair then they are still missing a top 2 right side Defenseman. 
 

on top of that, reilly expires at the end of next season. They will be right back in this same situation next TDL
