The other option mentioned is that the Leafs will take on a teams bad contract to amnesty in exchange for tangible assets that fit into the teams core age.
so the probability of Gards be dealt for a pick is low, it will be for either a young center coming back to the Leafs in any Gardiner trade.....
or we take Horcoff/other bad contract + good asset (e.g Paajarvi) in exchange for mid round pick or mid level prospect, with the intent to amnesty Horcoff/other bad contract
Why would we do that when we could just amnesty Horcoff ourselves?
