(25)

Leafs would probably want a good prospect with a good shot at the NHL. For all your ranting and raving about how Dubi is homegrown and a great player, Gunnar is also a homegrown player, who re-upped this summer, and is looking better and better. From a Leafs perspective there's zero reason to trade him to anyone unless we get a boom/bust prospect with very high upside or he goes along with another defensemen with a bloated contract to try and add some cap relief to our team when we gotta re-up Kulemin and Grabovski.

We don't even need Dubinsky why ask for him? We have Lupul and Kulemin on our LW and both play smart hockey and have heavy wristers. They're not great power forwards but they don't need to be.
lol it was partly a joke, I know that deal wouldn't be accepted. They really should just keep him.
