Beauchemin for Lupul + Gardiner

JVR for Schenn

Steckel for a 7th rd pick (best f/o and pk guy last year)

Phaneuf + Aulie for stajan +Sjostrom+ Mayers + White

27games of Kaberle for Colborne + 1st + 2nd

2nd for Liles

Lebda for Franson + Lombardi

Grabovski for 2nd rd pick
Trading Pavel Kubina for scraps was dumb. He was the Leafs best dman the year before.

Trading Kessel for two high picks was not wise. Not wise in thinking your team would finish middle of the pack.

Trading a second round pick used to draft Ross is still up in the air -- Jimmy Hayes is a 6'5" NHL'er. Not like the Leafs need size.

Trading Tlustly for Paradis was dumb.

Trading Stalberg, + for Versteeg is questionable.

Trading a pick for Olden was a bust.

Anton Stralman for a second rounder wasn't great.

2011 3rd and 2011 2nd for 2010 second so he could offer sheet Kessel. Which he didn't do was dumb.

Aulie for Aston I don't like.

Fletcher made the Grabo deal.

But yes MOST of his deals have been good -- not ALL.
