2) Things need to be shaken up to improve all of our positions. Another elite winger, #1 centre, a #1 goaltender...

3) You need to trade valuable players to get valuable players. No, you can't just offer Gunner for Backes like you laughably did in the other topic
The Leafs main needs are a #1 center, starting goalie, and a defensive defensemen certainly wouldn't hurt. The Leafs do not need another elite winger, Lupul/Kessel was the best duo in the entire NHL before Lupul went down, and the Leafs have plenty of wingers (JVR, Kulemin, Macarthur, Kadri, Frattin will all probably be fighting for spots on the wing on the 2nd line). Realistically, if the Leafs are trading Grabovski it has to be for an upgrade at center. The Leafs simply cannot roll with Bozak-Connolly/Lombardi/McClement as their top 6 centers. Even if Kadri is ready to play in the NHL as a center, I wouldn't want to trade Grabovski unless it was for an upgrade down the middle.
