Leafs Still Looking to Deal
 
TSNBobMcKenzie Bob McKenzie
I am hearing Leafs will keep the 1st rounder but are trying to move the 3rd rounder for a tangible asset who can play now.

So, who do you think they would want and or target?

A center with size.

Boondock 02-14-2011 06:02 PM

Late 3rds tend to bring back huge returns! - Maybe packaged with another player it has some value, Kaberle and a 3rd for ??? - something like that

Arnott??????

3rd+...

Epictetus 02-14-2011 06:03 PM

So it's gonna have to be an overpaid, fairly old center i'm guessing.

MoreMogilny 02-14-2011 06:03 PM

What would we be able to get for a late 3rd?

This doesn't make much sense...

A tangible asset? What a joke!

Burke is such a bad GM. He's said he wants to win now, blah blah and now trades a young proven player for a late 1st and a late 3rd.

While your at it Burkie, why don't you rid yourself of Kessel. I'm sure an LA might be interested.

I honestly feel bad for you Leaf fans.

Robbler 02-14-2011 06:06 PM

Horcoff.

We have too many depth forwards and could do with trading one. Dunno what they think they're going to get with a 3rd though.

Rather have him come to his senses than continue to trade futures.

Powdered Toast Man 02-14-2011 06:07 PM

You can have Kovalev for that 3rd

Basically a 2nd and 3rd for Versteeg isn't overpayment. The Beauch deal is overpayment, but that's a team that feels a there a solid Dman away from getting into the playoffs this year.

Blaylock38 02-14-2011 06:13 PM

Is Atlanta still trying to move Bergfors??? Not saying the 3rd is enough, packaged with something maybe.

Or maybe Burke knows of a potential soft trade he could make, take on salary.

JeffMangum 02-14-2011 06:13 PM

Christensen + NY 4th for PHI 3rd.


.......please.

im thinking it may be the latter he moved versteeg for a good deal freeing up cap space for a deal where he brings on salary to get a good prospect?

TrollololBoyle 02-14-2011 06:22 PM

Three 3rd rounders could get Versteeg back!

WJG 02-14-2011 06:23 PM

3rd for Clarkson + Rolston

seanlinden 02-14-2011 06:24 PM

Something that I've learned in the past week -- trying to use logic to predict what Brian Burke is going to do is 100% useless, because there is no logic in anything he's done so far.

Makes sense. Any ideas of who might be looking to dump salary???

I am curious. Do you like the Steeg deal or no?
