Leafs shouldn't deal away their 1st. Especially for Bouwmeester. Remember when Calgary had Phaneuf-Bouwmeester and everyone lauded them for having the best defensive core in hockey (with Reghier as well). Is that the magic you're trying to create? Leafs are a rebuilding club which Burke seemed to finally accept by not overpaying mediocre players in free agency for once. Home grow your team then go after free agents like Getzlaf if you rise to be a playoff team next year or someone else down the line if not.
No way the Ducks do that trade for Bobby Ryan.
Luongo trade might be good and would probably be in Toronto's interest. However realize you're filling one hole to create another. You go back to having nobody to play with Kessel on the first line and that line's offense will slip a lot. Finally getting a Goalie is probably in Toronto's interest more than a top line Winger though.
