    Well with Hemsky off the market now, Grabos the best forward available..

  2. 93killer93 says:

    On TSN they said Burke would strongly consider trading Grabo if they can get a 1st. I really hope that's not the case.  I would hope for much more if they're trading him.  

  3. TheLeafNation91 says:

    Depends…If they are trading that 1st away for someone else.

  4. TheLeafNation91 says:

    From history (except Kessel deal)…Burke likes to have atleast one first rounder in a draft.

    So, if he's trading Toronto…You bet he would take atleast a first for Grabo.

  5. mapleleafsfan says:

    Yea I'd want a first + a decent/good prospect for sure… A first round pick from Any team looking to get a 2nd line C will probably give us a 20+ overall pick, not worth it IMO. I'd rather have grabo and have a shot at playoffs.

  6. TheLeafNation91 says:

    That's stupid. Since it looks like this downward spiral will connue.

    If his demands don't change, your losing him for nothing.

    Would rather get the first, most likely be used for a top-end player.

  7. mapleleafsfan says:

    For all those top end players that are available? Because a 20-30 pick is a massive deal breaker?

    I think the team would be better off making the playoffs, shred the image of a loser team and move on from grabo if his demands are too high. Make us a more attractive place for FA's (Parise) if we actually show we can be competitive.  Also you never know what could happen with contract talks over the next few months. 
    If it's more than a first, I'm in though.
  8. TheLeafNation91 says:

    You got to MAKE the playoffs. At this rate, this team is heading for ninth or possibly 10th.

    A loss to Washington tommorow and Toronto is screwed…And you got to sell whatever you can.

    Bob Mckenzie said the Rangers could put Wolski on waivers as soon as tomorrow.  If they do I hope the Leafs claim him.  

  10. Steven_Leafs says:

    unless they have a deal to take on salary (Nash) there is not really any point to putting Wolski on waivers, but for a free rental I wouldn't mind the Leafs making a claim.

  11. 93killer93 says:

    Ya mckenzie said it's to free up salary so they can try to make a trade.

  12. 93killer93 says:

    Don't know if brown is available anymore but if we're going after him, i'd want to grab hickey too. I think he could be a reclamation project. Hasn't done anything yet, but i think he could do well with a change of scenery.

    deals i wouldnt mind seeing get done that make sense:

    To tor: dustin brown, jonathon bernier, dustin penner
    To La: kadri, franson, reimer, armstrong, d'amigo, 2nd
    To SJ: Macarthur, lombardi, aulie
    To Tor: joe pavelski
    To isles: bozak
    To Tor: nabokov, 3rd/4th
    To chi: grabovski, gustavson
    To Tor: andrew shaw, 1st 
    lupul-  pavelski –  kessel
    brown – connolly – kulimen
    penner- shaw- frattin/armstrong
    brown- steckel – armstrong/crabb
     phaneuf – liles
     schenn – gardiner (thought this pairing looked great ln, future top pairing)
     gunnarson- komisarek
    what do you think, provides good goaltending for now and the future, doesnt destroy our youth but does provide a huge makeover for our team but fills the wholes. Works out cap wise i believe and penner will be coming off the books next year and brown and penner will provide big tough bodys also. If we had to trade grabovski i think a perfect suiter would be chicago, need a good second line centre and will solidify there team for a cup run in my opinion with a good backup in gustavson incase crawford goes down. i would really try to get bernier and brown outta la with our surplus of defenceman. they need to fill the void of johnson leaving.

    I think in  a perfect world, lol, sure, but reality is all of those moves can't be made lol.

  15. MystifoLeafs says:

    You know it is funny. I started to look at teams who seem to always have amazing goaltending like Phoenix and it does not matter who is in net they seem to make the guy look like a god. I mean Bryz looked like a top 5 goalie in Phoenix. In Philly he just not playing well at all. Mike Smith last year on Tampa looked god awful suddenly on Phoenix the guy looks like he could challenge for a Vezina this or next year. My point is the system makes an average goalie great and it makes me wonder if Ronnies run and gun system could be at fault.  

  16. Kessel_Leafs48 says:

    I don't think the run and gun style is Ronnie's preferred style. As a coach you gotta look at what you have and think what the best style is for your team and with the fast smaller team we have you can't really play a defensive bored control game you gotta beat teams with the skill and speed game but u can't deny we'd be better with a better goalie because gus and Reimer haven't been cutting it so far although I though he played good against sj

  17. MystifoLeafs says:

    Wolski traded to the panthers. So that is off the table.

  18. toronto77 says:

    I think Hickey almost has bust status, and it's not worth acquiring him if we already have gardiner and percy. Although he would be a good investment if he can get a lot better playing with the leafs and marlies, and if he does not become better then gardener or percy than we can trade him for more then what we gave up for him.  

  19. Steven_Leafs says:

    yep that makes more sense than a waive, nice return for a guy they were trying to get rid of. (Vernace, 2013 3rd for Wolski)
