been fun reading on the leafs board. Now that their dmen are going to arbitration (Franson, Gunnar, Fraser) it appears they will likely have to lose at least 1 in a trade, and lots of talk now about how Gunnar has been a bit over hyped on the leafs board (by their own admission) and is not as great as he was made out to be. Kinda funny, since he was the "quality" piece in many a Stastny proposal.
I think a Goalie prospect + Sgarbossa/Hishon could be the minimum or McGinn + Goalie prospect maximum that could do it.
I'd not mind offering Sgarbossa + Aittokallio + Hunwick/Sarich to start.
Still think a prospect who has top pairing potential and is NHL ready but may need a year to adjust to NHL hockey is the best route for the Avs to look for that top pairing player. Probably one from a LHD deep team or a win now team (Gormley, Gardiner, Pittsburgh has a few)
