Around and around we go LL... Did not mention Gardiner or Reilly. The 1st is definitely there. Kadri is definitely there. If some combination with those two assets as the main pieces is not offered by Burke, he is a fool. Bar none.
You can talk about astonishing price this or premium that, but those are the assets, high or low, that will be key. That is not an astonishing return despite what leafs fans want to bandy about, nor is it gutting the leafs of all their futures.
As for the right time to make a move: It's when you suck and an opposing GM is gifting you an asset that is seldom if ever available. That's the right time. Or, you can wait for a mythical contention window that has a very good chance of never materializing... Burke's call there.
