I didn't see that part of the offer.

throwing in an extra NHL capable forward and then giving away a big slice of our future in the 2014 pick is just insane. Helm doesn't bridge the difference for us either.

But yeah, Leafs are garbage yada yada yada...
Zetterberg was 8th in scoring in 2010-11. He was 2nd in scoring from Christmas 2011 to the end of 2011-12.

He's a Selke caliber forward. He is a high caliber scoring forward. He would be moving to the more offensive conference and playing with more talented linemates. What kind of numbers do you think he'd put up?
