Pretty clear that this is a "go for it" move from Colorado. Obviously our offense needs help and the rotating cast of characters at right mid of Solignac, Hairston, Badji, and Pappa wasn't getting it done. I think this is a clear sign that Pappa has turned into (at best) a super sub while the other three have been stop-gap measures.
Le Toux gives immediate quality that can be plugged in there. 55 assists and 56 goals in 191 starts/236 appearances all time is significant. In comparison Pappa is at 37/31 in 150/175 and Sarvas is at 11/21 in 120/132. The downside is that I doubt we want to pay for him after this season so this will bee a 3+ month rental and then we'll need to fill that spot again.
I expect that the Rapids midfield/attack will line up something like this now (assuming everyone is healthy and available):
Gashi - Jones - Le Toux
Cronin - Azira
With Pappa coming off the bench as our primary offensive sub.
I'm not convinced we have enough offense but we're a lot better off than we were to start the day. Its good to see the FO seeing a need and giving us a shot this year by filling it.
