hahaha. Asking other GMs about their players and finding out who is potentially available, what it would take to get so and so, etc, is just the daily job of an NHL GM.

If these guys would actually read my posts, I've never once said the CBJ are good or Scott Howson is great, I am just pointing out after 4-5 years of being terrible, a franchise should at least have a bunch of young talent on the roster. Which the Leafs do not. Which is why I find it hard to make the case for Brian Burke being a great GM.

Last year, the Blue Jackets traded Antoine Vermette for two 2nd round picks. The Leafs traded away their second round pick for a 32 year old defensmen.

If you're a GM and you've built a terrible team, the least you can do is trade away your older players for picks. You don't trade your picks for guys in their 30's.
