With Burke, it's honestly hard to tell what he would be looking for because he has a knack for making trades that come out of left field. I think Burke looks at Aulie has a future player for the Leafs and in the meantime, his play is important in keeping the Marlies competitive. Burke has said numerous times that he's not only looking to build a competitive Leafs team, but a competitive Marlies team as well. To trade Aulie would be trading away a great prospect in our system who can have immediate impact with the Marlies success. I think Burke will only consider if the return is an overpayment (at least by HF standards).

Vanek, roy, that miller bum (is he even an nhl goalie?) + a 1st round pick.

That package will just get things started, Burke might be looking for more who knows.

We already have one monster in the division to deal with(Chara), why would the Leafs want to give the division a two-headed Monster(Aulie-Myers)? Smart money is to keep Aulie for ourselves.

This thread confused me. Too much "Blitz" for one board.

Kassian. No doubt in my mind Burke would move Aulie to get Kassian, one big kid for another. People would be worried about Myers and Aulie? Ummm we'd have Kassian, kids a bull.

Zack Kassian or Tyler Ennis. Maybe add Schenn for Myers.

Anything but Ville Leino

Try thinking about the trade from both team's perspectives.

If Leino wasn't such a high paid player I would be all for acquiring him. He is always playing on playoff-contending hockey clubs but his contract is definately not worth it. I remember Ken Holland or Mike Babcock say in his rookie season with the Red Wings that Leino was their hardest working player out of training camp. The only way we would be able to acquire Leino without mortgaging our future is to trade a few of our highly overpaid contracts like Finger and Komisarek.

I'd also like to think that if the Leafs were to get Tyler Myers he would be pairing with his old Kelowna Rocket linemate Luke Schenn, so I really do not see the Leafs moving one for the other.

Anyone been watching Aulie this season?

I haven't been keeping up with the Marlies much lately but I see he is whopping -10 in 14 games with no points. Are these number indicative of his play?

Leino is an impact player. Ask any Flyers fan, and they'll tell you he was always a clutch performer. Regular season, he is an overpaid MacArthur. Maybe trade Lombardi for him when Lombo comes back? Even then, I highly doubt it considering Terry Pegula went after Leino and Ehrhoff because he is serious about building a winning team, so I'd think that he'd be hesitant to let go of one of his "key" signings in Leino.

Kassian, straight up. Nothing more, nothing less. It would hurt to have to face 13'2" of mean defense in one pairing 6 times a year for 15 years. We need a tough winger to do it.

Thoughts? Needs?
I'm curious, why are you interested in Aulie and not Schenn, I know Schenn played with Myers in junior. An Aulie/Schenn-Myers tandem would be a very interesting pairing.

I would say Kassian is the guy Buffalo needs to part with if it's Aulie, you guys probably need some NHL toughness so I would include Rosehill in the package, he's an underrated player IMO since I don't think Aulie would be enough for Darcy to move Kassian. From what I have read on Kassian he's been inconsistent this year, not really using his size to full advantage, and he's been floating.

Not a great time for the Leafs to be moving Aulie anywhere. He hasn't played particularly well lately but he is clearly capable of more. In terms of a buy low/sell high philosophy if the Leafs were to move him now it would probably equate to selling low.

Not shopping him, as with most Leafs fans I like him very much, it will take a sweet deal to get him out of Toronto.

Aulie + for Kassian.

However, Burke was on record saying that he's only made one deal with Darcy Regeir (Dominic Moore for a 2nd), because of personality conflicts. They like each other but never seem to come to an accord.

Sabres are in great need for toughness, the Miller hit, the lack of response, Gaustaud was forced to fight Lucic, not in the same weight class. The Leafs obviously have 2 NHL enforcers on their roster. Now when Burke first took over the team, I remember he was disgusted Schenn had to fight the other team's tough guys as a 18 year old rookie. Vowed it would never happen again with him as GM, unlike other posters I am perfectly happy we carry 2 fighters that can also play 4th line roles. But if the Sabres came asking, I would listen to offers. Foligno and Kassian are the 2 players I would mull over.

I think we have enough prospects like Foligno in the system. Aulie + for Kassian is the way to go if we were to trade him, though I hope we don't.
