Toronto Maple Leafs Christmas Present

Christmas is forthcoming and i am wondering what everybody would pick if they had once choice to choose as a present for the maple leafs come off season. Since we are on the verge of a lock out the off season is the only thing to look forward to.

For me it is to get a top 3 pick in the 2013 NHL draft and then to sign 2 Top end Free agents to add to the young pool of Kessel , Gardier , JVR and Riley

Would having a CFL style management of the league for 2017 be 1 single choice, since there will need to be a lot of trades?

My wish: 1st overall pick when the season is eventually cancelled.

However knowing our luck, I believe we will pick out of the top 15.

Yeah, I'd like to see the Bettman Hockey League go belly up.

Its pathetic how much the leafs have dissapointed us that our greatest wish is to just see a playoff team or even a good draft pick.

I'm not even close to being in a Stanley cup mindset. I would be pumped to see Leafs just get in, even if they got blown out in the first round.

Does it need to be reasonable? If not:
Malkin and Fleury for Komisarek and Lombardi

If so:
Draft Nate Mackinnon

The journey is half the fun.

How about wish for one great draft where they get 2 or 3 franchise players. Let the players do the rest on the way to a cup.

A draft where we pick a stud in every single round.

Have a wonderful draft.

Take MacKinnon at #1, trade for the rights to Getzlaf for cheap, have him sign with us and then sign Backstrom or Perry

Well the Cup is the obvious answer but realistically, getting a franchise center from the draft (depending on draft method they'll use if/when the season is cancelled and IF the union isn't dissolved) and a good Free Agency period (again, depending if the Union is dissolved and the repercussions of that) is the best we can hope for. REALISTICALLY.
