Let me break down the trade proposal a few pages back that a lot of people liked. I believe it was Luongo for:
Kadri - this is the most valuable asset coming to the Canucks in this deal. He is one of the Leafs top forward prospects, understandable, but the Leafs have one of the best odds of getting Mackinnon if we don't have a season this year. And really, I don't see much of a spot for Kadri on the Leafs. He isn't good enough (in my opinion) to be a #1C and Grabovski has the #2C spot locked down. I guess he could convert to wing, but I'm not sure how that would work.
Frattin - he is a decent player who throws the body around and I understand that Burke values him a fair bit. But how many 2nd/3rd line tweeners do the Leafs already have? Quite a few. On the Canucks he would probably be an excellent fourth line guy/decent 3rd line winger.
Finn - solid defense prospect that was recently drafted. But last time I checked, the Leafs were looking pretty good on D. Phaneuf, Gardiner, Gunnarsson, Rielly to name a few. Seems expandable to me.
Bozak - soon to be UFA
If we threw in a first it would be more realistic, 5 pieces for one unreal contract.
