Would be a huge mistake. Mac is not only better than all those guys, but also younger

Macs severely underrated around here

Agree that CMac shouldn't be traded for any of those listed players as they're just more win-now type secondary players who will help us win nothing until we address the goaltending and 1st line center issues.

However, CMac is generally vastly over-rated on these boards. Lots of people like to call him a 60 point player but he did it only once with lots of power play and both of his linemates also having incredible season. Fact is he is a tweener. Can put up 2nd line numbers given the opportunity but brings very little else to the table.

The way I see our lineup right now is like this

Lupul - Bozak / Connolly - Kessel
JVR - Grabo - Kulemin

I would rather trade Mac for someone like Korpi on a third line with McClement. Would make a fantastic PK unit

No to Macarthur for Raymond. Macarthur > Raymond.

Should it just be a universal truth that:

"__________ is severly underrated around here" when talking about a leafs player?

I'm not saying their not, I'm not saying they are. I'm just commenting on the high correlation between talking about a leafs player and also having a leafs fan stating his undervaluation around HF.

Well it's true when considering Kessel, Phaneuf and Gunnarsson. MacArthur I feel is overrated by some leaf fans while slightly underrated by the leauge but not enough to make a case about it. The rest are valued fair most of the time.
