refuse to trade guys like Jake Gardiner, Nazem Kadri, Morgan Rielly, JVR or anything
of that ilk. It just makes no sense for the Maple Leafs.

However, considering the potential of the new CBA I would upgrade the offer to include
a conditional 1st round pick, a young roster player (Frattin, Franson, Bozak, MacArthur)
and a mid-level prospect.
I don't think the cap will increase significantly, The Nucks will be under more pressure to deal Luongo after the new CBA. Too many teams just trying to stay afloat, 8 teams are haves, the rest are even or have nots. Players better realize this, or there will be no hockey for a long, long time.
