So we'd be trading some longterm assets to not win the Cup and for a guy we'd instantly be looking for an upgrade over? Seems silly to me.
Toronto needs to get into the playoffs 1st and Ribeiro would help with that and he's the top free agent C this summer so we'd get 1st crack at signing him.
Getting Ribiero would also allow us to trade Bozak right after.
It comes down to what is the difference between the cost of Ribiero minus what we'd acquiring by dealing Bozak.
