That isn't necessarily true.

The key pieces of a deal for PK, a pending UFA (one season left) for TO would be based around youth (the new GM's obvious direction). I am not saying it would or wouldn't Penner or Gagne as a vet returning but if TO were to be able to get a package where they received a vet on a cheap expiring contract who can play on their top six as well as addressing other needs through a few of our prospects it could help get them back to good sooner rather than later.

Of course we may not be able to offer up the best package but who knows?

If the Leafs deal PK it wouldn't be for another vet, not at this point or at least not one they want for the long haul. I think they will be dealing his expiring contract to get younger and cheaper.
