Leafs give up a core player, but a replaceable one, and can look to trade or FA for a replacement. Kadri and/or Colborne notwithstanding.
Rationale: IMHO, Gillis will want someone who genuinely fills a need.
And it just makes sense.
From Florida, something similar:
Goc + Robak (and a pick) + Theodore (makes sense cap-wise)
Maybe you haven't read all the replies...but I don't think proposing deals that make sense is part of the overall theme of these threads. I doubt Panthers give up that exact package, but as a ball park it's on the right track.
Deals mentioning Kadri/Colborne just make me laugh. They're a lot more valuable to TO than to Van. Toronto rightfully doesn't want to trade them. Vancouver doesn't (or at least shouldn't) want them.
Canucks...are not getting a blue chip prospect.
Leafs...are not dumping useless salary on Vancouver.
Panthers...are not in a do or die situation, and will not give up an elite prospect. They have Markstrom for **** sake.
Why can't fans (and GM's) just get this?
