I can't speak for most of our fans, and heck most of them are crazy anyway, but I do believe Burke would do this . The money works out pretty well too.
You are already without a 1C and you want to trade away your 2C as well? If your goal is to win anything in the next 5 years you will need Grabovski. In about a dozen games that I saw the Leafs play last year, Connolly was terrible. Aside from that you have Lombardi, who was completely useless and then Bozak who did a serviceable job.

Value maybe fair from both sides but you would then have next to nonexistent center depth.
