The Leafs would surely be interested without a doubt but we don't have the win-now pieces that the Sharks require. Kadri,Percy,Colborne,picks etc are nice and everything but won't contribute much next season for you(minus Kadri). The only players we have that are expendable and can help someone out now are MacArthur,Kulemin, and Gunnar and even then I'd hate to see the last two go simply because I believe they'd come back to haunt us. I doubt Wilson would wanna deal Marleau to this market, see him flourish and do some damage with the Leafs. With him in our lineup we've got a pretty damn good top 6. Still though, we don't have the parts to realistically make a deal for pretty much any first line center.
