Of course you do. Why am I not surprised that you'd be satisfied with the Leafs getting bent over here?

Thankfully the Leafs have Brian Burke running the show. His past track record shows he would never include that amount of youth and potential for an aging talent.

Any deal involving the Leafs and Vancouver regarding Roberto will more than likely include short-term salary relief going the other way and maybe a mid-range prospect and mid-round pick. Nothing more, nothing less. Check out GMBB's previous deals as a GM of the Maple Leafs: when he was giving up draft picks or young players, he was getting back young established talent / potential in return. Shipping out prospects for older veterans that could decline in the near future is not in Brian's playbook.
