Huh? The Leafs don't have anything close to a first line C in their system. They have tons of D prospects though, including a recently drafted Morgan Rielly, among a plethora of other good defensemen. The hole left by Gardiner would be virtually non-existant next to the hole filled.

I'd assume Colborne is NHL ready, so couldn't he fill in as a 3C for Colorado(Or simply try out anywhere in the lineup if you're rolling 3 equal lines?)

Of course, there's always a chance you could try getting the untouchable Bozak involved as a replacement, but you might have to add.(Landeskog+, maybe)
