    I predict a huge blockbuster trade between now and mid July.

    Love that Kadri gets no respect, he still has a high offensive ceiling.

    Kadri + (not 8th though) for Kesler would help both teams but Vancouver will settle for a late first round pick and a warm body instead.

    Kadri for Berglund?

    Wow, make a trade with the Blues worst than the Stempniak deal. Iditots.

    The only way they move Kadri is if they know they are getting a ready replacement at the centre position.

    Even bringing back Bolland wouldnt be enough for that. They’d have to know they’d get say, Spezza, or Mike Richards or Stastny or O’Reilly.

    I think keeping Kadri is more than fine. As is keeping Bolland. Bozak, Kadri, Bolland at centre, it could be worse.

    Yes, it isnt Kopitar and Carter, but what team has that to be honest?

    I think at the end of the day, you have to draft those big strong centres. Carter is the anomaly of the one being traded, twice in fact. However, up until this year with LA, he was mostly a winger, just as he was used in Philly or Columbus.

    I think, to be harder to play against, filling the top 9 spots with 2 big, strong wingers that are much like JVR in a sense in terms of sheer size and skill. They need guys who can lean on their opponents. We’ve seen JVR be a complete handful for teams to stop around the net. The Leafs need more of that.

      I’d like to bring in a new centre, re-sign Bolland and flip Kadri over to wing. He’s too soft in his end for a centre.

      Say we could land M.Richards, along with Bozak and Bolland that would be pretty solid down the middle, much better from a defensive stand point. Wingers would be JVR, Phil, Lupul, Naz, and Clarkson. Not bad.

        In an ideal world I would love a top 6 next season of;

        JVR – Bozak – Kessel
        Lupul – Thornton – Kadri

        I know offence isn’t a top priority but they need to take some of the heat off the Kessel line badly.

        Probably not willing to pay the price for Joe either, so yeah.

    I heard the Leafs are getting offers for Franson, but wanna resign him. In my view, Franson is worth another look despite a tough season. I’m probably the only one?
