If he test the market then the Leafs have a better shot at him to sign then in a trade.
Actually the Leafs have the assets but Burke's not going to pull the trigger and move Schenn or Kadri. This will be the same issue come the off-season if Richards is retained by Dallas. If Toronto seriously wants to be a top contender then they are going to have to eventually move some pieces to get a an elite player. I have no clue what players are going to fit that label that will be UFA's beside Richards after the season. Fans have to be tired of seeing this **** year after year. A trade needs to be made so that players who are going to be on the block in the future will see that Toronto is serious about contending. IMO acquiring Kessel who is hot/cold and Phaneuf who is an avg. D man is not enough. Toronto is my fav. team other than the Rangers and Dallas and i want to see them succeed but this year after year of missing the playoffs or getting knocked out in the 1st round is getting old.
