He's only 22, the only reason we got Loktionov for a 5th is Lombardi was concerned that he was a flight risk.

Tedenby does not show signs of this. He's trying to stick on the NHL level very hard, just needs to build up strength so he can play the game he wants to. He's too weak on the boards and gets manhandled way too easily. His hockey sense isn't his strong point, but if he can upgrade his strength, he can get by creating offensive chances by actually winning puck battles.
Then what about just the 2nd for MacArthur? Would you think that would still get things done? I see some Leafs fans saying so but I can't help thinking there Toronto would ask for more as well.

Then again I'm only playing armchair GM here
