10:01 AM ET 07.21 | The defence can wait. Faced with the choice of acquiring a much needed "bossman" on the backline or a striker to replace injured leading scorer Danny Koevermans, Toronto FC has opted to focus on the offensive side of things. The Major League Soccer club announced Friday night it has acquired French striker Eric Hassli from the Vancouver Whitecaps in exchange for a first-round draft pick in 2014 and an international roster spot. In a conference call discussing the Julian de Guzman trade that day, Mariner described the addition or one or even a pair of veterans to his defence corps as "imminently pending." Canadian national team captain Kevin McKenna and Swedish international Olof Mellberg, were seen as potential additions.
