When u look at it closely and take every thought into consideration, this is an excellent offer for JVR, and also quite an overpayment if it turns out to be a potential top 5 or 6 pick.

I would have a hard time declining this offer if any of one of Mackinon, Jones, Monahan, Barkov, Lindholm, or Drouin are on the table because I certainly think these guy would do much higher impact than JVR and quite easily possess higher potential than him.

But like this poster says, JVR is a pretty unique player that we haven't had in a long time. He is greatly needed here in Leafs nation because of his big size, frame, speed, skillset, and ability to go hard to the net.

The issue then is this - if this deal is only fair if the pick nets one of those guys, then why not just wait until the offseason?
