If the Leafs can do perhaps Schenn + prospect for the 1st OVR and then trade up for the 3rd, I believe that Burke could be able to pull off what he did with the Sedin twins, except with Yakupov and Galenchyuk. Thoughts?
Unless Burke holds a gun to the heads of the other GMS I do not see him being able to get the deals done. Oiler wont trade the number pick in a quantity for quality trade. Oilers have lots and lots of bodies running around--while they need the go to D-man--I do not see the leafs offering the oilers Schenn, Kadri and what ever other players the leafs would throw at the oilers to get a deal done. Some leaf fans may balk at the Schenn and kadri idea alone--but those two players don't get you number one
