Toronto doesn't have the right pieces to get Gaborik.

Unless you want to give up Kulemin, Gardiner, Blacker, and 2012 1st.

There is pretty much no package from Toronto I would be interested in.

Toronto really shouldn't be interested in Gaborik. They need a guy to compliment Kessel.

I'm not really in a position to check up on Toronto's cap situation next year... but I just don't see how such a deal is possible unless Toronto wants to sell away their future.

Gaborik wont fetch more than a second and a mid prospect - certainly not Kreid . . . err, Kadri.

Gaborik isn't going to be dealt. Certainly not this season.

All that was said was Sather was "willing to listen to offers"

So a 2nd plus prospect as Fox's expert objective analysis tells us, is probably not going to be enough to pull away the Ranger's 2nd leading scorer.

There is literally no combination of players on the Leafs roster that I would want for Gaborik.

Someone bitter Kaberle wasn't moved when he had some serious value?

There is no combination of players the Leafs can offer for Gaborik. None.

Add your '12 first to that and it still is lacking.

Gaborik is having a off-year offensively and I refuse to believe that the majority of fans believe that he's lost his touch... so

Marian Gaborik
Matt Gilroy

for

Tomas Kaberle
Nikolai Kulemin
Jesse Blacker
Philly 1st


That proposal is most likely missing a Kadri and something else.

I'm going to let this one off nice and easy with a simple "no."

I would be happy with:

Kadri + Schenn + Kulemin + 1st '12 for Gaborik

I happen to be very high on Schenn though

The Leafs are in limbo beyond belief. They don't have a good team, they don't have an overwhelming bunch of prospects like Florida or Edmonton, and they don't have a good draft pick coming up. It's going to be very, very hard to acquire any superstar given Toronto's assets. If you want Gaborik, you're likely going to have to include Schenn where many Leafs fans will stop reading here and rule that one out. I hate to break it to the surrealists it's going to be near impossible to acquire a superstar unless it's via free agency or draft.

you wouldnt take kaberle, kadri, kulemin, kessel, schenn, grabo, 2012 1st second and third, elisha cuthbert and a lifetime supply of waffles for gaborik drury, redden and say boogieman?

im sure if you went to extremes, theres plenty of ways the leafs could aquire gaborik, as much as you discredit any leafs players based on your hate for the fanbase.

The Leafs fans aren't going to be happy about this. No reason for them to strip half of their future for a one-way player who's having a very off year.

sounded to me he was quite definite about his opinion. "none."

hes clearly bitter because leafs fans want more for kaberle than most rangers fans are willing to offer. which is obvious for both sides thats how the case should be.
we want player x for a+b
we will give you player x for c+e!

arguing always ensues about player x being crap, player x being a god, if hes crap why do you want him? if hes god why trade him?

its very tiresome.

(this is not limited to rangers/ leafs deals of course, just ranting haha)

The main problem here is that, if the Rangers trade Gaborik, they would want high end prospects and picks. The Leafs do not have that combination. Schenn would be a possibility, but he is completely redundant with Staal. Kaberle would not have any appeal in a package because the Rangers would want to get younger and more talented, not older and less talented.

OV is having an off year too. He might not even score 30 goals. Does that mean he's lost it? No. Gaborik hasn't either, he's just had a bad year. His numbers are actually still fairly decent, but i fully expect him to bounce back next year. He is one year removed from his best season ever, 42 goals and 80+ points is nothing that is going to be moved for cheap.

Leafs fans must be joking when they think Sather would even listen to a 2nd and prospect. This isn't kaberle were talking about. This is an elite goal scorer.

thats exactly what it was. he was making a snide remark based on how rangers fans blow up everytime theres a kaberle proposal worth more than b prospect + 2nd rounder, so he made a joke that thats all that gaborik could fetch.

edit: and it made me laugh, because it was a good joke.
