The Leafs, on the other hand, are obviously building for the next few years so if there were any prospects that could come to the Leafs to help with that process, it would probably make parting with a Gunnar or Franson as part of a deal that much easier. Rielly will obviously have a spot in the next couple of years, one would think, but the kids are going to need a taste of playoff hockey, even if it is a round, to get them prepped. Is there a Schroeder? Gaunce, who I doubt) that could liven this deal up to make Burke think long and hard about tossing in one of the D prospects we have?
Rodin is probably the most expendable of Canucks prospects... IMO. EDIT: On D maybe Adam Polasek.
