Pronger for Kaberle + Stajan ????????

Pronger is a UFA after next season, but Anaheim gets Kaberle with some term left on a deal and Stajan who has played pretty decent this season.

Is this what is has come to? Listening to the Leafs PA announcer? Frost is a bozo and is really annoying to listen to. I would like the Leafs to get a guy that has an ounce of hockey knowledge to run the Leafs post game talk show.

As for the rumour, Frost brought up, it just proves how dumb he is. So Anahiem who are closer to a playoff than we are, are going to trade one of their better players for a rental player and a mediocre young player. I thought it was made quite clear that if the Ducks do trade Pronger, that they will start to rebuild. Antropov and Stajan for a rebuild?

At is Frost calling the Leafs stupid or the Ducks stupid? My guess is he is calling the Leafs stupid for considering this deal but if the Ducks offer me Pronger for Stajan and Antro, I take it and run. This gives the Leafs the opportunity to move one of Kubina or Kaberle now and the Leafs have the option of dealing Pronger next deadline. Once again, this is how dumb Frost is.

Overpaid? To back it up you suggest that they can't skate (which shows your genius). Then you say there just plain average as best. If that were the case their salaries would be right. They are not exceptional hockey players but they are both very good at what they do. I think you'd have a lot of trouble finding anyone to back up your statements.

average players do not get traded for pronger like the proposal suggested and stajan kills penalties and gets the odd goal on a good team. antropov sucks listen to your GM he hates the guy cuz he plays lazy and cant skate. I hate people who think that just becuz it's a leaf guy that they are worth more. any leaf fan that actually know's hockey doesn't like antropov at all

Ducks would be getting hosed, so in that sence its not bad for the Leafs. But in the sence they should be getting draft pics i think this is completely false.

I was just listening to Ron Wilson on AM640 on the drive home, and he said the Leafs are not interested in Pronger. It is counterproductive to the re-build and we would have to give up assets for a short term player, and Wilson believes this trade will not happen.

It makes zero sense unless the leafs went ahead and flipped Pronger to another team for assets. Some say Pronger will get a bigger return than Kaberle, so flipping Kaberle for Pronger may get Toronto a better deal.

But honestly has something like this happened anyway? Making a trade than dealing that player just a few days later? Yeah, so this makes no sense really.

Burke said the same thing last week, but Wilson and Burke both lie to the media often. I'm not saying that this rumor is true at all, all I'm saying is it's been discussed everywhere and is even talked about by Ulmer on MapleLeafs.com.

Pronger is an ELITE defenseman and a top 5 blueliner in the NHL and Antropov would be a 2nd line player in the Ducks and Stajan would role on the 4th line. This deal could happen if the Leafs through in there 1st rounder this draft and another lower level prospect.

that would be a great move for the leafs if they can flip pronger in another trade to land some top notch prospects, other wise forget it
