From the Leafs point of view, tempting. Gagner would probably become our #1/#2C quite easily, we would get the 7th ovr and the chance to draft a Nichuskin, Monahan, Horvat etc. Marincin can decently replace Gardiner and has more of a shutdown upside, which is what the Leafs need.
Only problem is we have Grabovski, who is a similar player to Gagner but has proven he produce more points.
Still, I think this deal is worth it, it won't leave us in a worse situation (we can move Gagner to the wing easily), Marincin is at a point in his career that is similar to Gardiner's, and the 7th will allow us to draft a very good prospect.
I think we pull this deal, would suck to lose two of our big assets, but what is coming back is pretty good.
Of course, don't expect others to agree with me.
