Would be a step back moving Kessel for picks but if they could get a good, young centre for him, it would be a wise move IMO. Especially if Lupul and Phaneuf are dealt for quality young assets as well. Those 3 moves would bring in the building blocks the Leafs lack and assure them a couple top 5 picks - which would cement their status as a rising young team, ala the Edmonton Oilers.

Nonis should strip the team down to nothing. There just aren't the pieces there necessary to compete for a Stanley cup, now or in the future IMO.

Re-signing Lupul right now would be akin to Burke locking up JM Liles last season when he did. No reason not to wait.
