Here's a proposal:

to TOR -- Modry, Rome
to LOS -- Jackman, Bell

Admittedly Modry is not great in his own end (though he is adequate and his lapses get overblown IMO) but he is a veteran who could give the Leafs 18-20 minutes a night, play some PP and give some much needed depth. (particularly if a guy like Kaberle went down) Rome is a very nice defensive prospect (who DT is playing hardball with) who is putting great numbers in the WHL and was a teammate (he was just traded) of Leaf propsect Ian White.

Jackman gives LA some depth for now. I personally like his game and think he could add some toughness on LA's defense in the 5/6 spot. Bell is a nice prospect who replaces Rome in LA's prospect chart and should become a solid depth defenseman in the NHL.

If you think Modry is not great in his own end, wait until you get Jackman

After saying that, Deal!
