I love as a Leafs fan that the Leafs drafted Leivo and it has been exciting to watch him dominate this year in Sudbury. Any team buying at the deadline will be lucky to add a player like Leivo. He makes everyone around him better and can carry a line. He should and will be at a premium as the trade deadline approaches. Look to last year when Spooner was dealt straight up for Kujawinski... Leivo for Petti straight up could work I was impressed with Petti when Belleville played in Sudbury.
IMO, Leivo is easily a top 20 player in the league. If he moves his feet and skates consistently instead of coasting, I'd argue he's in the leagues top 5 of forwards.

The kid has hands that would make a lot of NHLers jealous.
