I also think the Leafs need to decide if they want to make a run for the playoffs/shot at the Cup this year or next year, or if you prefer to miss the playoffs but accumulate more high draft picks and draft potential future cornerstones of your organization. Either direction isn't a bad move, but would drastically alter your position when discussing trades.
One position, going for higher picks, completely negates the need for Lu.

The other means trading futures for proven players.

One or the other makes fine sense, but don't try to have your cake and eat it too. If you're asking about Lu, including second tier players from either category makes no sense.
