Not with Rielly, Percy, Finn, Blacker, Holzner, Gardiner -- they have enough young D.

Trading a player that is NHL ready and fits in your lineup now and in the future for a prospect that you would then trade to get a player hopefully like the one you traded is dumb. You'd only make that deal if they overpaid.

Makes no sense for the Leafs unless it's Sutter or MAF coming back the other way. Of course if Pitts want to give some top young player and a couple good picks well...but overall this thread is going nowhere. The Leafs don't need/want nor will they accept an underpayment for Kuly.
And Pittsburgh shouldn't have to pay through the nose for a guy that dipped 23 goals in one year. He is a good player, but not at the expense you are thinking (Sutter, Fleury, Morrow). Agree ... this thread is going no where.
