#3 Trade decent draft pics for 3rd/4th liners with a career +/- of minus-78

#4 Trade even more decent draft picks to move up 2 spots to take a "stay at home D" with the upside of Hal Gill. "Quality over quantity" -Fletcher 2008 entry Draft

#5 Let any other tradable assets go without compensation. What good are draft picks?.. Oh wait.

And there you have it. 5 easy steps to rebuilding.
Ok I have to disagree with your assessment of the leafs draft. I bet you really love komisarek on that blueline? If i recall you guys spent a pretty high draft pick on him as well(7th overall). Trading up to acquire a physical presence/future captain material/ with underated offensive upside was a very good move. That is the type of player Toronto sorely lacks, a solid building block to build a franchise around.

And Hall Gill? For his size he is remarkably soft. Schenn is the complete opposite of soft. Choose a better comparable next time.
