A deal with Boston that doesn't include TO's 1st or Colborne is a non-starter.
Really? What other team with a top 5-10 pick would realistically be interested?

Just because Boston has it, doesn't mean it will have to be the key piece to any deal which is the way some people treat it. A top 5 pick is just as important to a competitive "going for it" team as it is a rebuilding team imo. Any cheap high end talent you can add extends that window to win, and gives you more flexibility on your roster.

Starting with Colborne makes sense imo, but why you wouldn't ask for Krejci in his stead I don't know. He makes far more sense for your team, is a far surer bet, and steps in right away to become your number 1 center, at a cost effective salary. Colborne is very much a work in progress.
