Why would we trade Schenn for JVR?

What is the obsession of Leaf fans and top line talent? Lupul is top 5-6 in points, has great chemistry with Kessel AND he's makes about HALF of what Nash makes and has like 20 more points.

Nash is great, but he isn't 7.8M great, OR good enough for us to trade Gardiner+++.

We have seen how inconsistent our D can be, I think Gardiner is a top pairing defenseman by his 2nd year, at max his 3rd year.

I guess Ottawa should have traded EK for Nash because he will be great with Spezza?

Jake Gardiner is a young talented player with outstanding upside and it makes it even better that he wants to stay in Toronto. He is not untouchable, but for players like carter i would be very disappointed

Actually, we'd trade more than Gardiner. The base wouyld be Gardiner since he's so "great"
We're not in a position where we can give up good young assets as we are fighting for a playoff spot, not home ice advantage.

Jake Gardiner.

How do you know his upside? Where is potential shown? Talk about potential after a season.

well what did you mean by building around Kessel and wanting a better Lupul? how is the guy sitting 6th in the league in scoring a second line winger and someone who needs to be improved on for Kessel?

I'll take those words back if you can explain. seems pretty clear from what you said

He is fast, passes at a very high level already and can shoot like kabby never could.

Put him with a McCabe and 40 would be easy. Not to mention he already has 18 points this year, will end near 25, if not more.

Do you want to make the playoffs or not? If an offer comes Burkes way that involves Gardiner+ for a star he'd be dumb to not do it.

6th isn't first. I love how good Kessel and Lupul have been. But there are people who do what Lupul does better than Lupul. If you had the chance to get one of those people, would you not? Besides, do you not want scoring depth? Are you saying Lupul after one season has become so good he's a 1st liner forever?

Kaberle was great when he was paired with the right defenseman. In Gardiner's case, even as a 21 year old, he's sent out there in key situations.

I don't think he'll ever put up 67 points but he'll definitely be better defensively. Young Gardiner > young Kaberle, but less points.

He's EASILY the best defenseman some nights with the Leafs, and I put his puck moving skills above Liles already. Gardiner just needs to get more games under his belt and then he'll shine.

I've got no doubt he'll be a special player. It's not just the Leafs and their fans that think that. When it's all said and done, it won't be called the Beauchemin trade, it will be called the Gardiner trade.

We got a ****ing expressway named after this kid, no way we're trading him.

Blitz, when everyone disgrees with you it might tell you something.

Very rarely is the person going against the pack the correct one when it comes to things like this.

Obviously I want to make the playoffs, but bringing in Nash doesn't guarantee that, we have a better chance of making the playoffs more consistently if we develop our young assets vs trading them for one "star" destroying our future.

Again we're not in a position to go for big names right now, when have you ever seen a bubble playoff team trade their futures for a "star"?

Why not? If any of our young defenseman is traded, it's Schenn. Leafs identity is speed, he is the most immobile defenseman the Leafs have that can be moved and give us a positive return.

He's also playing 16 mins a game at the moment when Gunnarsson has become a top shutdown guy, Gardiner is becoming better.

If a defenseman is traded, it's Schenn, or Komisarek (can't see anyone taking him).

I don't think Lupul is any different from guys like Sharp, Lucic, Hartnell/Jagr, Horton etc that are on winning teams top line.

What? When did I ever say this, all I said is why would we trade Gardiner++ for Nash? He's not that good and we lose in the long term and take a huge risk short term.

Also, getting Rick Nash doesn't change the possibility of making the playoffs when the Leafs are a top 10 offensive team. On the contrary, if we have to gut our defenseman/goaltending/or top prospects to get Nash, I'd say we lose the trade and chances of making the playoffs decrease or stay the same.

Getting Rick Nash isn't like dating a girl, it's basically marrying her Leafs will have to pay 7.8M to Nash when he's 34 years old. Not sure I want that unless he doesn't cost much off the roster.

Well lets start with the basics. What has JVR shown that would make us want to trade Schenn for? #2 pick? He had one good series against the Bruins and all of a sudden everyone falls in love with him.

Where would be be on our team? 3rd line left wing? Isn't Kule the 3rd line left wing? He wouldn't get any powerplay time or SH time, so he'd get about 12 minutes a game.

You'd trade Schenn for someone who plays 12 minutes a game? What are you basing potential off of? JVR just like Schenn has had all the oppurtunites to succeed, but never did. D men take longer to develop than forwards as well.

lol. so Nash, with Kessel, would be leading the league in scoring?

you're digging a hole to big to get out of. good luck. I'm done with this stupid discussion. thankfully Burke agrees with me on this one, and JG will not be going anywhere.
