He's not looking for it, he left it there because he, like everyone else, got the **** out of the armpit that is the city of Buffalo.

If he stays healthy for another year, then you trade him at next year's deadline, and you're probably looking at a great return. I don't see them getting that return this year.
We Leaf fans can get a little sensitive about are players sometimes but I completely agree with your assessment of Van Ryn.

Why? I hope we are. It's a rebuild and I really hope the plan isn't a one year rebuild. Good luck getting through the first round.

What type of player is Korostin?

Not a guy that cares about the defensive zone, and he's small. He's got alot of talent in the offensive zone, but if he can't play a Top 6 role in the NHL, he'll never make it.

That said, there's a decent chance at him being succssful because he is very fast and has great hands.

Sawada is the player Toronto would work. He's big and he loves to hit. He's smart as hell (Pre-med at Cornell/Wanted to be a doctor if hockey hadn't worked out). He has some offensive potential, but he'll probably just be an above average defensive forward and mainstay on Dallas' PK in the next year or 2.

I hope they don’t trade him, and then resign Sutherby. I’d love to see an Ott-Sutherby-Sawada line.

Go with this next year maybe:
Brenden Morrow-Mike Ribeiro-Jere Lehtinen
(Jamie Benn)-Brad Richards-Loui Eriksson
James Neal-Mike Modano-Fabian Brunnstrom
Steve Ott-Brian Sutherby-Raymond Sawada

Ott may have played his way onto one of the Top 3 scoring lines though. I could see him playing with Richards next year. I think he has 11 points in the last 7 games. Ever since he broke his hand, and has not been aloud to fight, Ott’s been scoring like he was back in juniors. I have a feeling this will just be a hot streak, but who knows.

I don't think I'd part with Korostin. He may be small but he has tremendous speed, great on the forecheck, and has a really good offensive skill. I think he played a checking role for Team Russia in the WJC, I can only hope that his defensive play got better during that time.

Looks like Ryno is hurt again. No way this guy gets traded this year unless Burke just wants him gone...which I would guess is not the case.

Dinged his knee up. Might not be serious, but he's out tonight and getting an MRI. The Leafs would be smart to keep him this year, get whatever you can get out of him on the ice, and then let him get healthy in the offseason. If he can stay healthy then he's a good guy to have, and might be of some value at next year's deadline.

I personally have no idea what MVR is worth. However, one comment is that expecting the Hal Gill deal to have set the market may not be realistic. Every deadline frenzy is different, with different parameters. True, GMs almost always overpay, but the overpayments are not identical and the type of guys teams want are not the same.

Gill, whatever his limitations, was seen as a warrior-type and the type of gritty vet that teams want in the playoffs. The exact player that teams have badly overpaid for in the past. There haven't been that many overpayments for guys like Van Ryn (more offensive oriented players).

But, as I said, every year is different. There could be teams that want to overpay for Van Ryn this Spring simply because offensively oriented dmen seem to be in demand right now.

It's always good to have trools kicking around these boards! & We want to be a basement team again, a few years picking in the top 5 with only help.

If he didn't have to play against the Canadiens he'd probably be able to get in 50 games a year.

Leafs should keep him and just build his value back up.

Did your master keep you on a leash for the entire ceremony or did you have to do tricks?
