Ducks want Gardiner back from the Leafs, told that is a non-starter for the Leafs, who are offering Kadri or Colborne, plus others.
Early #BobbyRyan favorites: MIN, TOR, PHI, BUF, DET the Wings could dangle Brendan Smith, and Valteri Filppula with a 1st rd pick.
Better than fake Kyper
Do you trust this account for information? Obviously it's better than a fake account. Just wondering - if that rumor has any truth to it, what would our lineup would look like if Kadri/Colborne are traded + a pick + whatever. Wouldn't it make sense to trade one of our top 6?
Not saying this is the depth chart or how a hypothetical lineup would look, but just wanted to get the names down. There's a serious logjam for minutes with this lineup, someone would have to bite the bullet. It would make more sense on the Leafs end to add someone playing good minutes, unless Burke has really changed his ways from a top 6 bottom 6 style, and rolls 3 scoring lines with a 4th line that plays PK and next-to-nothing minutes. But still, there's Armstrong who will eventually play and Lombardi who has played good minutes when he's been healthy. Overall, in my opinion, it makes sense for a hypothetical trade for the Leafs to include someone that Ryan would assume the role of.
I could see him to NJ for Parise. Anaheim gets a star natural LW who can dish and score to go with Getz and Perry and NJ gets younger, RW power forward who can play with Kovi. ANA may wanna shed some $$$
