It's not that he's not great. It's that he's not great enough to warrant being swapped for a 22 year old C who just scored at a 77 point pace over 48 games. It'd be foolish for Toronto much more than it would be for Winnipeg.

Either way, neither player is ever getting traded. This is all speculation and why wouldn't you want to boost your player up?
This post is bang on. Under what pretense is Bogosian so valued? I don't get it. Bouwmester would have made sense for the leafs at the deadline but Bogosian?

And for people bringing up Kadri's SH%, keep in mind his ATOI is 16 minutes a night, with limited special teams time. Normalize that, and this "aberration" is more than mitigated.

Leafs can do better if they ever dangle Kadri, and that won't happen anytime soon.
