[TOR/PHX] - Grit for Scoring

To Toronto

C Martin Hanzal

To Phoenix

C Tyler Bozak
C Joe Colborne

- - - - - -

The leafs are in need of some bottom six grit and the coyotes would benefit from depth scoring. Joe Colborne is a higher end prospect and could boom or bust. He could end up as a legit 1st/2nd line scorer, a 3rd line defencive C, or just bust. With the odds being in favour of the 2nd option.

Phoenix gets much better depth down the middle.

Leafs get a clear 3rd line C.

Thoughts?

Hanzal - Kulemin would be a great 1-2 punch on our 3rd line.

Won't happen, unless I'm dreaming there it could happen.

Big no from me. Unless its for a #1c I just dont think its wise to ship out Bozak as right now he is our #1c because the others just dont mesh with Kessel. I'd maybe do Connolly and a mid round pick for Hanzal. Even then maybe not, with McClement, Steckel, and Lombardi to fill out our #3 & #4 c roles I think we are ok with centers.

There is no chance that Phoenix will accept this.

There is no chance the Maple Leafs would do this for the reasons just stated above, he is the #1C until we get one. He will be a great 3C when they can finally put him there.

Hanzal is a much better version of Bozak and Colborne doesn't make up the difference at all.

Hanzal would be the Leafs 1st Center, so talking about bottom-6 grit is kinda funny.

So Toronto gets a player that every Leafs fan wishes Bozak/Colborne will become? Okay then.

Don't know what's funnier: the proposal or other Leafs fans claiming they wouldn't do it.

Oh wow, you want the best 6'6 shutdown, defensive player in the west, for Tyler Bozak and Joe Colborne?

No

With Tyler Bozak and Colborne you could probably get Stasny, go ask Avs fans and leave us alone thanks !

No! Stastny is overrated and overpaid. What the Leafs really need is OEL.

I had that one coming, but OEL is overpaid and soft, you guys already have Morgan Reilly who will be even better in 6 months, what you guys need is a guy like Getzlaf he's home grown and the ducks need a 2C what ya say Leafs fans?

So the best player in the draft can't be better than the #2 defenseman on a bottom feeding team?

Wow, come on man Morgan Rielly will win about 5-6 Norris trophys, but the best player of the draft is Jankowski AINEC.

Why pay a ELC for a young player when, you have Mike Komisarek for 4.5mil?
