There is no one (who isn't untouchable) on that Leafs team who is consistent enough to be a trade IMO. Poni, Hagman, et al. They're all streaky and unreliable. That's why the Leafs are where they are. They had a bunch of Antropovs, Ponis, etc who could play consistently enough to make that team competitive, let alone playoff worthy. No doubt Burke will change that and has already started to with guys like Kessel (and prospects like Kadri). But generally.. not many people on that team I'd care to bring over other than some of the high quality young talent (which as noted aren't likely to be traded).
(re: above - I wouldn't trade Kunitz as part of a Boyes deal... that would have to be early picks and prospects or something else, because Boyes isn't reliable either and is poor defensively. Losing Kunitz and adding Boyes would make our GA shoot up IMO, even if our Goals For shot up too).
