Leafs to make a run at the Sedins this summer?

Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun is reporting on the possibility that Burke will make a run to land the Sedins this offseason. He notes that Burke is very loyal to his players and has made moves to bring players who he has worked with in the past into his organizations.

On the flip side, the Sedins are quite happy at present in Vancouver and there is a chance that they will take a hometown discount to remain with the organization that drafted them.

Another player who Burke may have his eye on is Mattais Ohlund who is also set to become unrestricted this summer. Years ago Leafs fans may remember that it was the Leafs who signed Ohlund to his first NHL contract which forced the Canucks to match.

HTR would like to know … Leaf fans … do you really feel that the Sedins would help the Leafs to make the playoffs? Would you be happy committing 12 or 13 million toward the cap on these two players.
