not interested in Brett Lindros ...on the 'non-Leafs' boards JVR=Schenn +2nd
however, rumors had Burke expecting JVR+ for Schenn
...so call JRV for Schenn a wash.
now you have 5th pick overall, where the top 5 are all potential franchise players, and you offer a backup goalie, and some picks from next year
would you trade Couturier for a 2,3rd, and 4th if we toss in Gustavson? ...NO, i didnt think so. ...so, why would you expect the Leafs to do it, especially when the Leafs are a non-contender and have desperate need for top end talent.
if you offered
JVR + Couturier
Schenn and the 5th overall
...at least that would open a dialogue, and Personally I'd turn it down, though, i'm sure many other Leafs fans value Couturier more than I do, and would jump at it.
I believe all 4 of the forwards available in the top 5 will be better than Couturier, and that is why i wouldnt make the deal. ...if they were all gone at 4, then Yea, I'd make it in a heartbeat. even though JVR's health, and ability is a HUGE question mark (a few good playoff games doesnt make you a great player, else Lieno would be starring for Buffalo in the playoffs right now)
