we give up nothing off the roster, we get better immediately, our late 1st rd drafting is marginal....the leafs second could end up being 7 or picks behind one of our 1st...

gotta give to get....I think Phil would be a stud for us
When Toronto sent two 1sts and two 2nds for Kessel, that trade looked bad for Brian Burke. ESPECIALLY when Boston went to draft Seguin with one of their picks. I have no interest and giving BB and "undo" on that one. Your package sounds like too much. I guess I don't have enough confidence in his consistency and all-around play to give up so much. Not TWO 1sts. One for sure. A 1st, Thomas, + a roster player - or - A 1st, Thomas, 2nd, another prospect.
