Mind you, with his contract at this moment in time, it's probably a non-starter.
In theory maybe, however it would depend on their perception of Ovie's decline. Why I believe it is stupid for Toronto is the possibility that first becomes a top five. Toronto would only be stacked on paper but on ice performance indicates otherwise. Now I do not see Ovie being traded any time soon, although that is more to do with his continued decline and what may become a horrid contract.
