How is that not a reasonable deal?
you may not want spooner for other reasons, if you are looking for a big center etc. but how is that not a reasonable trade? let alone calling it trolling.
The value isn't even close. I wouldn't consider it trolling, but you cant even consider Rielly or Gardiner will be apart of a deal for Spooner? seriously? Okay he is looking good in the AHL, and Gardiner is having a hard time finding a spot.
But both Gardiner and Rielly are young 1st round draft picks that if you were to ask anyone besides Leaf haters, they would tell you that they are worth there place in the draft still...and wouldn't consider moving them for a similar aged guy, drafted in the 2nd round, who is scoring in the AHL and may be NHL ready.
