But something like this seems to be the common ground.
For a goaltender with lou's resume that is more then fair to ask for especially if the team offering the package needs lou to win the cup. The leafs aren't that team but, if I was burke and gillis called me and said bozak, colborne, and a 2014 1st gets you lou then I think long and hard about it. Now a lot of leaf fans will say I'm crazy but bozak is a decent top 6 player/tweener, big joe is a mid level prospect, and the 1st is a 1st. All of these pieces at some point have a replacement through the marlies or in junior, and what we gain is an elite goaltender with a questionable term on his contract. The aquisition of lou at this price would also help to attract higher end free agents in the next few years as well adding to his potential value to the leafs.
