Actually, there are many teams with no need for a potential top 6 centre... Toronto's one of them. They have Grabovski signed long term, Bozak, Colborne, and McKegg. Nice to have Schenn? Sure, need? not at all.

Furthermore, what a team like Toronto needs is to eradicate the culture of losing. When you've got as much depth as the Leafs have, you don't eradicate the culture of losing by adding a guy who scored less than 20 points in over 50 games last year.... no matter where he was drafted. In the case of Toronto, you do so by converting some of that depth into a top line centre, or transitioning middle-of-the-lineup depth on the wing (strong point) to middle-of-the-lineup depth on the blueline (weak point), or acquiring an upgrade in goal. You don't trade for another depth forward.
