My priority in a trade would be to get one player with size rather than a few pieces and picks. I'd like to get one guy with size who could help the team long term. Of course, I know that every team including the Leafs are probably looking for the same thing so this may be a pipe dream.
As much as I give credit to Kadri for improving his defensive game, his size will always be an issue IMO. He's 185 pounds..and he tends to get pushed around a bit along the boards.
