We are talking about Offensive D men right? As in Ability to produce offence?

While buff is arguably top 3, and unequivocally top 5. Suter is not an offensive D man. He may be a better Defencemen then Byfuglien, but he's not a better Offensive D man then byfuglien.

Subban has been, for one season. Since he's trending in the right directioun you could MAYBE make that argument, but until he does it again (ie next year) it could be considered a fluke.

What i would consider fair value for Buff? Pretty much what brent Burns got.

under 25 top six forward/top 4 d

top 30 prospect ( i believe coyle was ranked in the top 20 at the time of the trade)

first round pick.
Well Ill just make it clear that the leafs dont want/cant fit buff on the team in anyway, but are you telling me that franson and a 1st and colborne is significantly more valuable then franson and a 1st? I just think that value is too high imo
