Aulie i'd be happy to see swapped for a similar forward prospect. He wouldn't have to be equally enormous but big and physical with a legitimate shot at an NHL job.

Considering Aulie has potential to be a top4 Defenseman with great shutdown abilities (not to mention hes 6'6) the leafs should hang onto him as his value is pretty low right now due to the fact that hes not playing. IMO the 4 most important defenseman for the leafs moving forward are Franson-Gardiner-Aulie-Gunnarson.

He is a shutdown dman, hes bottom pairing, at 22 yrs old, coz he doesnt have the offensive skills to play in front of liles gardiner franson and gunnarson. But the guy played top2 minutes with phaneuf in last years playoff push and was very good. Notmany good def dman of that size and age already performing in the nhl. Comparing him to a junior prospect is unfair.

Both Joey Leach and Chris Breen fill a similar role to Keith Aulie.

They are obviously behind Aulie in development at this time, but as I said it would not be worth the cost of acquiring him in the first place.
It sounds like he is being run out of town by the Leafs, so maybe he'd be cheap to acquire...
