The Leafs need to make a move towards the playoffs and the future. In that we need to go out and aquire Svatos at all costs!!!! He is 24 and one of the quickest wingers in the leaugue with a knack for creating odd man scoring opportunities. The Leafs are desperately lacking in the speed department. For right now he would look great on the top line with Sundin and Tucker once Tucker gets back from injury. For the future, how great would he look on a line with a gifted playmaking centre like Wellwood. It makes sense in all areas, and for once we'd be aquiring someone to help the team in the long run, rather then just another stretch drive vet!!!!!
I honestly think it will cost us, but we have to be willing to give, in order to recieve. Realistically in this market we're looking at giving up a first round pick, a conditional pick and a prospect, maybe Kronwall…..
