All of which avoids the fact that he's probably worth a hell of a lot more than DSP and Beleskey a the trade deadline.
So, we just need to find a dirt cheap option as a 2nd line center. No one is going to give us that discount. Maybe we just might have to take a risk to get the player we need, and we're probably going to have to pay that person to play here.

Obviously, the Leafs won't consider doing this. They need him if they're going to have a shot at the playoffs.
