So any recent first round picks are off the table in any deal for Roberto. That includes Tyler Biggs, Stuart Percy, Morgan Rielly or second round picks that have been performing exceptionally thus far like Matt Finn.
Older prospects like Joe Colborne, Nazem Kadri, and Matt Frattin won't be moved either. Needless to say, Jake Gardiner won't be involved in any trade.
That leaves the likes of Nik Kulemin, Clarke MacArthur, Cody Franson, etc., and any pick not in the first round up for trade.
If it's Kulemin, it'll most likely be him straight up for Roberto. If it's MacArthur, the Leafs will likely add a second round pick.
Keep going with that logic a little further. Maybe just guarantee that nobody in Toronto will be involved in a Luongo deal. I give you better than a 50% chance of being right. The rest of the predictions....
