Stazz contract is not great but if a team can afford it , it is the Leafs.

Meanwhile in Denver, Greg Sherman just felt a shudder.

If he did even think about making this trade he should be fired on the spot and banned from Denver.
They aren't expendable pieces. They are all NHL players but the Leafs are graduating their younger players to take their spots. Tyler Bozak is a capable 2nd line C but after acquiring Stasny he'd be redundant with our C depth being Stasny, Kadri and Grabovski.

Carl Gunnarson is a top 4 defenseman who is young and isn't that an area of Colorado's need?

That's three NHL ready, young players and a 2nd round pick.

Colorado has a young enough team right now and for them to take that next step they have to plug holes with NHL ready talent. The players offered aren't old either.
