I'd say the 3rd pick (with agreement to not take Barkov) and a 5th rounder would do it. Both Toronto and Philly get what they need, with Toronto getting a little extra for helping.
I would agree, but that's what Leaf fan's said last year... something like "After the emergence of Gardiner, we don't need another defencemen... Burke will grab one of the forwards" or "We have an abundance of D prospects, we need one of the top forwards".

I feel if the leafs have the #2 overall and Burke has the rankings as: Mackinnon, Jones, Barkov, etc. he will either trade up for Mackinnon or not move and take Jones... Whether I disagree or agree, that seems like what Burke will do

I'm really starting to like what I've been hearing about Barkov though, kid seems like he might end up going #2 overall.

Any one of the top 6 and I'm a happy camper as a Leaf's fan (Mackinnon, Jones, Barkov, Lindholm, Drouin, Monahan)
