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.
Maybe you're right about Toronto looking for more youth, but I just don't think we have the youth to get a deal like that done anymore.
