Lets hope that times have changed no more "draft schmaft" and Nonis decides to keep his picks and use drafting and developing internally to fuel his rebuild methodology to making the Leafs into a contender.
With Dallas Eakins doing an excellent job of providing future talent this is certainly now a more viable option available to the GM to use as building block approach.
The Rask trade was bad, but let's not make it like having a 25 year old Kessel is a bad thing too. I'd rather have Kessel than those two.
And I doubt Rask is that much better or better at all than Reimer, who was drafted by JFJ -- so there's some redemption there. We really let Rask off the hook with our collapse, otherwise, that would be two series in game 7 where Rask would have collapsed. As good as he is, he is a benefactor of a great defensive team.
