Now that Nikolai Zherdev is a UFA, we'll get tons of speculation that Burke is going to sign him. Personally, I believe that the only way he does this is if he's able to move a salary like Lee Stempniak. On the right side, the Leafs have Blake who is better and Kulemin who is younger and a better fit. Plus, the team really needs to have at least one true grinder on the right side (whether it be Orr, Mayers, or whoever).
What Stempniak brings: about 44 points at the age of 26 with a 27 goal season under his belt.
Simple question: What would your team give up for him in terms of picks/prospects? Do not bother posting if it includes salary dumps of the Leafs treating him as negative value. Also note that under this scenario the Leafs would not be looking for NHL players in return.
