With him being locked up for a few more years, the LAST thing Toronto will do is move him to a divisional rival that you have to play 6 times a season. Simply not happening. Brian Burke does NOT often deal within his own division ever, look at his history of trades. During his time as GM of the Ducks, he made ONE mid-season move with a divisional rival, at the deadline in 2006 when he acquired Sean O'Donnell from Phoenix for Joel Perreault. Not exactly a high profile deal. If you look at EVERY other deal that Brian Burke has made throughout his career, with all different teams, he has NEVER sent a premier player to a team within his own division, and I highly expect he'll continue with what's worked for him so far.
Habs fans? KEEP DREAMING, that's all it will ever be, a DREAM.]]>
Remember, Staal went 2nd overall LESS than 3 years ago, and you want Pittsburgh to add an ADDITIONAL 1st Round pick, to get a guy like Kaberle? Pittsburgh could use a guy like Kabby, but not nearly at that price.]]>
