You're problably right, Tampa doesn't value Kaberle enough to make the deal. They are looking for the world and aren't going to get it. Simply put, if Tampa doesn't lower thier asking price, they can draft Tavares or Hedman at #2 and see how that works out for them. The Leafs aren't overflowing with talent to the point where we can start trading 2 first liners for 1.

Cowen is better than or at worst equal to Hedman if it wasnt for the injury.
Brayden Schenn has nowhere near the high end offensive potential that Tavares does; but he is by far the most complete prospect in the draft. Plus, if his offensive skills are good enough to translate to an NHL top line; he'll easily be a player very similar to Getzlaf.
