I was wondering when you would show up.

I actually have watched almost every Leaf game this year (Wife is a Leaf fan Son loves the Habs) and the last few seasons (mostly from the road) and I really like the way they are playing this season. They have changed a bunch and look better then they have in a long time.

That said I agree with your valuation on this proposal. MR is a special player who is in the prime of his career and has a very reasonable cap hit.

Gardiner looks like he is going to be very good and I can't see the Leafs moving him but Grabo and G just wouldn't get MR. Losing MR would be a huge hit to the Kings. If they would move him it would be due to their starting a complete rebuild and then for picks and NHL ready young assets. Gardiner would be a good start but again, the Leafs won't likely move him so there you go.
