[QUOTE=Savage]I'd say Antropov is the biggest "what if" in the NHL and that's why the Leafs can simply not afford to trade him.

Because he is this "what if" Toronto can't trade him. No one really knows what kind of player he will become, so Toronto will get next to nothing for him as part of the risk premium.

He will be in Toronto for several years now and they will live with good or bad.

Personally, I think it is good.

These big guys - you just never know.

Bertuzzi to Vancouver
Leclair to Philadelphia
Pete Mahovlich to Montreal

or

Isbister to Edmonton
Gratton to Buffalo
Zubrus to Montreal

Not a risk I would be willing to take on either side of the deal.
