Paul Postma?

Not sure makes sense for either team, though.

Fans are. Although Burke says he is an impatient man, he has been letting players take their time developing lately.

No thanks we are more than set for young Dmen. Postma would be behind Reiley, Blacker, Percey and Finn on our prospect D depth chart.

A dman prospect like Stuart Percy would be of more interest in case Enstrom leaves and they need a new baby sitter for Byfuglien.
This one makes the most sense ..

You forgot Cormier and Slater but obviously I agree, the Jets have plenty of centers. It's no knock on Colborne, but the Jets absolutely don't need him.

Funny thing I was just in the car listing to sports radio in Ottawa and they were talking about how soft Colborne plays for a big guy.

We're pretty set on the wing and on D long-term.

Our goaltending is rocky, but you're obviously not going to give up Pavelec for Colborne.
I just can't agree with you that the Leafs D is "set", sure they have nice prospects who may or may not be ready for the NHL, but the D was absolutely horrible for the past few seasons. I felt sorry for the goaltenders, no goaltender in the league is going to look good behind D like that.

What they really don't need is more scoring, that isn't their problem, keeping the puck out of their net is the problem and it is not only the fault of the goaltenders.
