And so on and so forth. The leafs need ELITE talent. The supporting pieces aren't so important. Its those 2/3 building blocks that you need to worry most about. Reilly could be that...kadri may be that, maybe phaneuf... but imo guys like grabbo and kessel are great supplementary pieces, they cannot serve as building blocks.
I don't want to say get rid of them for nothing, but imo there's an order to things. Get the elite guys FIRST. Spend whatever it takes. Then take what's left to give them the best supporting cast you can.
I'd rather have Kessel over half the guys you listed. The best teams in the league have two - three superstars with elite talent. We're one 1st line C away from being a really good team imo.
