Toronto Maple Leafs fire sale

There. I said it. I'm not one to ever make a trade proposal thread, but the suckage has gone on long enough. Let's say the entire team aside from Phil Kessel and Jake Gardiner was shopped. Offer away. Mind you we are looking for prospects and picks and not veterans or band-aid solutions to make another pathetic attempt at that final playoff spot.

Should mention prospects are not available. Only roster players.

Never heard of Matt Donovan. We're not trading Luke Schenn for a 2nd.

Add Phaneuf, Lupul, Kadri, and Colborne to untouchables list.

I hope we ship out Lombardi, and Komisarek.

Why would the Leafs be sellers? I thought they were going to be one of the best teams in the league after the all-star break. At least that's what Leafs fans told me.

A fire sale will not accomplish anything for the Leafs. The team needs some help up front, and some help in net. The foundation is there for the team to build on, the Leafs just need to add a few key pieces and perhaps a coaching change would help. This is one of the youngest teams in the NHL, there will be growing pains with the team. Next season should be the turning point to see what Burke and the management team does to bring in the key pieces needed for a push into the playoffs and beyond.

I don't consider Phaneuf or Lupul untouchable. We won't sell them unless the deal blows our socks out of the water though. There's no need to sell players like them. I agree that the veterans have to gtfo.

Kadri, Colborne, Blacker also.
Lupul-_ _ _-Kessel
_ _ _-_ _ _-_ _ _
_ _ _-Bozak-Frattin
Brown-Steckel-Crabb

Phaneuf-Gunnarson
Schenn-Gardiner
Liles-Franson

Option 1) Sell, but for young players ex: Grabovski for Wilson (NSH)
Option 2) Sell for DPs ex: Grabo for 1st, cond 3rd(CHI)
Option 3) Sell for DPs and Young players ex: Gustavsson for Cond 2nd(3rd if he does not resign) + Kulemin, 2nd, 3rd for D. Brown
Option 4) Be idiots and try to buy into playoffs

Don't really like that we have the set in 2nd line even when people are very underperforming, and all the crap players for 3m+ playing instead of younger, more skilled players.

finally a Leaf fan who has it right

why get 8th then get crushed? Doubt any move they make gets them in that spot anyway

I would offer up Kulemin and Gustavsson for Bernier.............get a freaking Franchise Goalie........The D core is not bad.........do anything possible to dump the Komisarek contract on someone else

move Grabovski for a pick and prospects

that's what they should do at the deadline

If Kessel was having a crappy season then this would be like a kick in the nuts, but as it stands now it doesn't bother me.

Typical 4th liner. He's a great player, heart and soul guy. I think we gave up a 4th or a 5th for him? We'd be reluctant to let him go though.

First of all, get the idea that Schenn is a top 5 pick caliber player out of your head. He's under-achieving and it's been long enough that he's playing in the NHL to know that he's not going to be as good as he should have been. Now, I'm not saying he's a total bust, but he's not at all a first pairing stud d-man like he was supposed to be...

As for Donovan, he's a very promising young defenseman that could honestly become a very steady pmd in the NHL as soon as next year (or at least the one after that easily). He's not known cause he plays for the Isles, but he's solid and has some good potential...

All in all, this helps the Leafs long term which is what they need right now
