I still think if the Leafs and Flames were to do a swap it would make more sense:

G. Nemisz


J. Blacker

Leafs get a hometown guy who should step right into the nhl at any forward position and would do great with a guy like Colbourne. He has size, hands, good sense. Flames take the #4 defensive prospect for the leafs who would probably be the #2 d-prospect in our system, a ways from the NHL but could potentially be a solid 2nd pairing guy.
I would probably do this. Blacker is a good prospect, but already sits behind Gardiner and Holzer on the depth chart, and will soon likely be passed by Reilly, Percy & Finn.

This deal uses an area of strength (prospect D) to address an area with more need (prospect C/FW).
