Kessel + Kulemin + Phaneuf would likely be the starting point. They'll want our best forward in Kessel, they will likely want Kulemin so he can play with Malkin and they'll probably want a #2 defenseman to play with Letang. I'd imagine they would also want a center coming back who can play the third line because Sutter will move to the second so throw in Tyler Bozak as well. Just for *****, I'd imagine they'd want one of Rielly/Gardiner to top it off.

Oh, and they'd probably make us take Martin to relieve some cap space.

In other words, the Leafs would be ****ed even if they acquired Crosby.

Kulemin - Malkin - Kessel
Kunitz - Sutter - Neal
Kennedy - Bozak - Dupuis
Tangradi - Vitale - Adams

Letang - Phaneuf
Orpik - Niskanen
Gardiner - Depres

-mind explodes-

For laughs, this is what the Leafs would look like:

Lupul - Crosby - MacArthur
Van Riemsdyk - Grabovski - Kadri
Lombardi - Connolly - Frattin
McClement - Steckel - Brown

Gunnarsson - Martin
Komisarek - Liles
Fraser - Holzer

Dat defense...

The offense isn't actually as bad as I envisioned, still have solid center depth. The success of the Leafs would be largely hinged on our prospects developing into what they were drafted to be. The defense on the other hand is a disaster.
