the question is macarthur for booth fair? I think the two are close but at 2012 pounds booth brings size we need
He's not that heavy, but no way we do this.

Booth is better than McArthur IMO and either way McArthur is a pending UFA is he not? As is Bozak so Kadri is the only one that brings significant value since we probably wouldn't be able to sign both McArthur and Bozak and hope to keep Edler with the cap falling, and Kadri for Luongo isn't enough IMO let alone Kadri for Luongo and Booth.

Not bad, and the 1st/2nd conditional pick idea is something I had thought of aswell, works out for the leafs because if Luongo doesn't take you to the playoffs for whatever reason the price is reduced (Since him making you a playoff team is the big sell on your end)

If you swap Franson to Finn you have a deal with me.
Wow that's rediculous, Gardiner isn't happening let alone the 5th ovr.

I'm in the same boat as you though, swap Franson for Finn since we need prospects and I'm on board.

Conditional 1st


We honestly don't even need Bozak in the deal IMO cause I don't know if we would be able to re-sign him or even want to with JS, ZK and then Kadri coming up but it would be a nice rental option, perhaps we could even add a tad more on our side (? signifies possible minor additions).

Now maybe he didn't want to trade Hodgson to Toronto, however if Gillis wanted Luke Schenn for Luongo why didn't he get him at the trade deadline when he had a chance?
I don't think MG ever wanted Schenn, i heard the report about Schenn too and was pretty certain you guys offered it to us.

And can you confirm that the mystery team that wanted Coho was indeed Toronto? Or is it just your speculation, cause I have always been interested to find out. Do you have a source?
