I'd also tend to see Syndergaard as the equivalent of Jesse Blacker, not Reilly. He was not our top pitching prospect (Aaron Sanchez is almost unanimously viewed as a better prospect, and even Roberto Osuna might be higher on some lists), but he's definitely a really good prospect.
D'Arnaud would be Yakupov then just based on his position. The point is, the Leafs don't have the prospects or the farm team to make a big splash like this.
