Realistic Moves for The Leafs

Everytime a Maple Leaf story is up, people come up with these crazy trades about mutliple player trades to teams to get a good return. The real world does not operate like a NHL 2006 for your gaming system. With the Leafs using a lot of their salary cap on junk players, you have to look within the organization to make the right moves.
