Could be. I wouldn't be surprised as Toronto could use another top 6 winger and Edmonton needs defense. However, at the same time it could be something around Grabovski for Horcoff +. If Toronto is actually targeting Weiss and with Kadri as our second line center, Grabovski doesn't fit into Carlyle's system as a third liner. Horcoff's contract is terrible, but he could be a good third line center for the Leafs.

The crux of these discussions in my mind from a Nonis/Leaf point of view (I am an oiler fan). Is that they must just love a certain player they feel will be there at 7. Thus they are not saying, 'we will give up gardner for the 7th pick in the draft. They are saying we will give up gardner only if Elias Lindholm happens to be there and we feel that lindholm (or nurse or monahan, take your pick) is going to be a tremendous player.

As Leaf fans have said however, the Leafs did well enough last year that they are not in rebuild mode. The talks between the GM's could easily be about any one of a number of players from each team.

Sasha Barkov will not fall to #7. That's the one player the Leafs need the most.

I'll be very disappointed if the Leafs trade for the 7th pick because it will likely cost Gardiner and we'll have to wait 2-3 years for whoever we pick to make it to the NHL. None of our top picks really get a chance to break into the NHL in the first year.

The 7th pick in the draft holds a lot of value, but I'm just hoping that there is either nothing brewing between the Leafs/Oilers or it is a player transaction.

if reimers is "only" able to achieve a 924 save percentage and a 2.46 goals against and its still not good enough for you then you have impossible expectations of what a goalie should provide. im not calling reimer elite by any stretch but at the very least he is a serviceable average to slightly above average starting goalie who is young and cheap and highly likeable.

bottom line, i cant see reimer being moved unless a significant upgrade is brought in to replace him.
Yep Reimer has been great. I would say his is a top 15 goalie in the league. You know who is better than him? Price, Lundquist, Rask, Anderson, Miller. Do you see a problem with this? If we don't get Bernier than Philly or the Isles will and that will add one more team to the list.

The problems with Reimer stem from his natural underlying athletic ability and are not going to get better. Positionally, mentally he is A+ and at the top of his game. We need better.

Leafs are not going to get better without taking some risks.

Haha good luck with that, not getting Kule for a 2nd rounder.

Question for a Marlies fan.

Other then Hamilton. Who did Eakins 'go to' a lot on the Marlies?

Could see a minor deal involving a player Dallas thinks is NHL ready.

Have a feeling Dallas is involved in EDM signing Hamilton to a 2-way in the offseason.

There'd have to be somebody they really liked still available in the draft. That does sound like a 10 minute conversation, preparations if someone slips through so if it comes up on the draft floor a deal can be finalized pretty quick.

Who though? What players other than Seth Jones (who Im admittedly not very high on) could come in and impact the leafs right away? IT makes zero sense to trade a top 4 dman for a player who may not be ready for another year or two despite the fact that the team is in win now mode.

ChuckWoods has already debunked that whole thing. If Ranger plays in the NHL next year, it's going to be in Toronto.

no thanks from the Oilers POV

if Monahan or Lindholm is at #7....I'd be tough to trade it to TO for Gardiner or whoever, I think think the Oilers lack size down the middle (Monahan) and two-way ability (Lindholm)

passing on these guys would hurt

I can almost guarantee one thing.

There will be a player that played for the Marlies last year, that suits up for the Oilers next year.

dude, i'm not in anyway saying that colborne is better than gagner, but in actuality he's (gagner) way better. gagner >> colborne. no question about it.

but if you add our first rounder it changes. colborne + 21st > gagner.

that's how i see it. our first rounder has value despite what edm fans say...

Please don't trade Gardiner for the 7th overall pick. It'll be a mistake

At #7 there will be very good centres still available. And while I think we can get a good potential #1 centre I don't think it's wise trading a developed player like Gards for a player that will take a few years to develop.

We would have to take the hit for another year or two, possibly missing the playoffs again, to wait for the younger guys to come up:

-Rielly, Percy, Biggs, etc and if we pick Monahan.

It just doesn't work for me.. Unless if EDM sends something else to entice me we have no deal.

Would not be surprised to see Zigomanis replacing Horcoff's role after he gets bought out

Living in Alberta I get to watch A LOT of Edmonton.
You NEED D fact, Leafs need top 6 RW also a fact. Not saying it happens but it makes sense.

Why do we need a top 6 RW? Kessel and Lupul seem to be two top 6 RW to me...

Yeah nice bold moves upgrading the oilers bottom 6 by picking up other teams AHLers. What you say is probably correct. I just don't think it's smart.

Really? Lupul plays mostly with Kessel when healthy and when he does he plays LW JVR is also LW so yes this team needs a top 6 RW
