I wouldn't do that trade from a Leafs perspective at this point.

It is the fact that we would also get Winnipeg's 1st round pick in a deep draft where we would also get another great prospect. And we would open up salary cap space to get a good free agent.

Scheifele, Trouba, 1st round pick and Good Free agent (Clarkson, Horton etc) is better than Kadri and Gardiner. Bottom line!

If you asked anyone in hockey, who knows hockey what they would you want

Nazem Kadri
Jake Gardiner


David Clarkson
Mark Scheifele (7th overall 2011)
Jacob Trouba (9th overall 2012)
13th overall pick in a DEEP DRAFT

What do you think they would pick???????
Clarkson isn't even part of the deal and I personally wouldn't spend the money on what is rumoured. We have prospects to fight for the third line position.

I don't care where players are drafted after the draft. Its up to the players and development systems for them to hit their projected potentials. So throw out the draft positions.

So now we are left with three I hopes for two young promising NHLers.

I keep Kadri and Gardiner.
