what do the Leafs need?? Who has Burke always wanted??
a 1A centre.

What do the leafs have a surplus of?

so here we go....

Leafs acquire
and Nabokov if Islanders want a Leaf goalie.

Islanders acquire
Percy or Biggs
Reimer or Gustaffson if Nabokov is traded
AHL prospect along the lines of Frattin, D'amigo, or Blacker
2012 1st round pick

that's 3 recent first rounders, like 'em or hate 'em an all star d-man who is 6th in scoring, B-type prospect, and Connolly as a stop gap for losing their franchise player.

and before all the Islander fans get bent out of shape....
if Gretzky can be traded in his prime... then anyone can be traded.

personally i'd like to see NYI also include Moulson or Parenteau, but I would still do the above to secure JT in a leaf uniform.
I think JT would immediately give the leafs 3 lethal lines.
Seems like an awful lot for one guy

That may be the amount it takes to make nyi fans okay with it (I mean in quantity and my opinion quality, but I'm sure nyi fans don't agree) but in the real NHL nobody would give all that for one guy
