I think Caputi is a good prospect, and I like Hanson too, but the problem with the Flyers trading Hartnell is that there are a couple teams (LA, Phoenix for example) who have been trying to get him for the last year. If we're going to ask him to waive, you'd have to knock out socks off - and hope he'd agree to waive.

This is the problem with your idea of us trading Hartnell to make room for Niemi - we don't need to trade Hartnell as a salary dump, as per the Gagne deal. Hartnell is signed for a couple more years, and would have some trade value.

In that sense, we could probably get better prospects from the Kings or Coyotes than the Leafs can offer - since the best Leaf prospects like Schenn and Kadri are deservedly off limits, but your pool of prospects isn't as deep.
