Toronto sends:
D Morgan Rielly
D Carl Gunnarsson
3rd Round Pick


F Ryan O'Reilly
Shane O'Brien
5th Round Pick

This way if there is still a need at forward we can go all in for a Semin/Perry/Free Agent.
Healthy without a free agent is:

landy - stas - jones
mcginn - duchene - pap
palushaj - mitchell - downie
mcleod - olver - bord (sgarbossa could also challenge for a spot)

gunnar - EJ
barrie - hedja
Elliot - Zanon
In this deal we give the better pick, the better d-man and our top prospect for a hard to sign RFA ROR?

You crazy. Rielly is OFF THE TABLE. He was probably Canada's best d-man at the WJHC at 18, and would be leading the WHL in d scoring along with Seth Jones were it not for the couple weeks that had off for the tourney. He is probably the top drafted defensive prospect not in the NHL right now.

I don't mind Gardiner going the other way but Rielly is insta-nope
