I don't think Yushkevich would be the best guy to get (though not bad). Hes not the same player he was a couple seasons ago, there was a reason he was moved 3 times last year.
The reason Yushevich played for three teams last year was because he was a pending UFA.

Florida aquired Yushki because they wanted a player of even skill in return for Svehla.

Florida then traded Yushki because they realized they weren't going to the playoffs. LA wanted Yushki for their playoff drive.

LA traded him when they realized they weren't going to make the playoffs.

Interest in him has been mild so far because he apparently has some sort of chronic knee injury.

I'd like to see the Leafs get him. Why not? He was arguably our #1 guy about 2 years ago. He played well against us in the Philly series.
