The Leafs don't do the 1st trade for a few reasons.
Hemsky is redundant on a team like the Leafs. I've said it before that he doesn't bring anything the Leafs need (for example, the Leafs don't need one-dimensional scorers).
Musil is just another D prospect being added to an already deep D prospect pool. The Leafs need forward prospects way, way more than more D prospects.
Also, trading Gardiner for the 7th overall pick has been discussed a lot recently. I wouldn't do it because trading Gardiner for an unproven player would be stupid when Gardiner has done what he has in his young career.
Scrivens could be available though. I'd guess it'd depend on Nonis getting a veteran backup and if he did, then I'd think Scrivens wouldn't cost much to acquire.
