Trade Phaneuf & Kessel

Leafs can't make the playoffs with Phaneuf & Kessel being our top 2 players it's time to move these 2 in a trade for rebuilding blocks. Phaneuf is not a good captain look at last years epic collapse with this guy as the teams leader and now we are seeing signs of being the exact same team again folding in games whenever the opposition continually pressures our defense. In fact it is the same team. I also don't want to have a captain leading the team that turtles when challenged skates to the bench then chirps. Trade Phaneuf at the deadline for a pick or prospects get whatever we can to whatever team that will take his contract.

Contending teams will be interested in trading a pick or prospects for Kessel. Kessel would be a good addition piece to a contender he is not the 2 way centreman forward scorer that we need to rebuild. Trade Kessel now before he walks in FA and we get nothing in return for the enormous price paid for him by Burke.

Leafs need a proper rebuild and we have to start by stock piling picks and prospects. The draft is fairly deep this year we could also trade Phaneuf and Kessel for picks and position to draft a potential #1 goalie or #1 centerman.
