Buffalo - Toronto

I usually don't make trade proposal threads but this idea popped up into my mind:

Buffalo:

Matt Frattin
4th round pick

Toronto:

Paul Gaustad



Yes? No? Terrible?

No.

Frattin is a RW, a position Buffalo is very deep at. If they move a center, they want a center back. Hell, if they move a RW, they want a center back.

def not terrible, I would imagine that buffalo would get offered a second rounder for gaustad, I would imagine nearly every playoff team will try to get gaustad

No from Leafs PoV.
Why give up a good prospect in Frattin for a bottom 6 UFA?

I wouldn't mind the Leafs going after Gaustad, but I'd offer a 3rd rounder at the most.

Wow, lets trade futures for the great pending UFA Gaustad...

Leafs aren't a contender, and adding Gaustad isn't going to change that. I don't at all see the point of this proposal. The Leafs can just signed some of that calibre, or Gaustad himself, July 1st without giving up anything.

If you're not a contending team, then trading for rental UFAs is a really bad idea. Trading for signed guys is another thing, or pending RFAs.

No thanks from the Leafs. Gaustad is good, but not a that price.

No from Leafs, Frattin is projected to be a 50+ point two way forward and were not trading him for... THAT

Why trade a potential top 6 for someone best suited as a 4th line C? Gaustad is David Steckel with some grit.. I wouldn't mind him instead of Steckel, but there's no need for both of them, and especially at the expense of Matt Frattin.
