Phaneuf < 7th
Grabovski < Gagner
Komisarek = Horcoff (horcoff is more useful, but overpaid & has extra year remaining)
2nd > Eager/Peckham
move Phaneuf who might be ? to re-sign & UFA to be (not convinced he likes being in the toronto media spotlight), and Grabo whose deal is a bit risky given the term. Get back a top-pick, while adding a solid top-6 C with upside, an overpaid but decent 3rd line center, and two gritty depth players that will fit Carlyle's style of play.
Gamble on being able to re-sign Phaneuf (albera roots should help?), add a nice top-6 C to complement RNH (grabo is much better defensively than given credit for, while skilled enough to complement Yakupov well). Komisarek may be done, but may also be a "fresh start" away from being at least a solid bottom-pairing addition (knows Eakins well
). 2nd is what it is.
doubt most teams would value a 1-year Phaneuf enough to move the 7th overall... but MacT strikes me as the kind of GM that would. Nonis, on the other hand, I could see jumping at the chance to make an impact draft and set the stage for Gardiner/Gunnarson to become focal points on back end.
