I don't see how it has to be a possibility. I don't see it at all.

Can you really picture Fletcher breaking Gainey's balls to the point where he refuses any one of Grabovski/Valentenko/D'Agostini/Maxwell/White in order to demand the guys we're most keen on?

All the aforementioned prospects are guys I'm really high on too, so it's not as if the Leafs are getting stiffed in any way, shape or form.
