Mock Draft if Leafs Picked #1 Overall

I think it would be pretty interesting to see what everyone would think about this possible scenario for the upcoming draft.

Leafs Trade.
#5 overall pick
Nazem Kadri

To Columbus for
#2 Overall

then..

Toronto trades.
#2 overall
Cody Franson

To Edmonton for
1st Overall
later round pick

Mock Draft (Top 5)
Toronto - Nail Yakupov
Edmonton - Ryan Murray
Montreal - Mikhail Grigorenko
New York - Filip Forsberg
Columbus - Alex Galchenyuk

This would be the only possible scenario where the Leafs could keep Jake Gardiner while obtaining the first overall pick. Columbus gets two young forwards in Kadri and Galchenyuk to build towards the future, Oilers get much needed help in the back end in Franson and Murray and the leafs get a potential franchise player in Nail Yakupov.

Cody Franson and Murray for Yakupov... good luck with that...

more like Jake Gardiner + 5th for 1st and that still might not get it done.

Neither trade really works. The first trade would need to add atleast a third rounder or another prospect. The second trade...... you're going to need more then Franson to take Yakupov from the Oilers. Going from second to first you enter a new "tier" of talent in this draft.

The first trade the Leafs would not do and the second trade the Oilers would not do.

Nothing? Really? You are going to make that call? I guess you wouldn't want Kessel, or Gardiner? Think before writing. However on one front I agree with you. Horrible idea. Keep our 5th and be happy.

This is brutal for EDM. Lol at Franson being the only piece added to move from #2 to #1. Try Gardiner instead.

If Anaheim won the lottery

Anaheim: Yakupov
Columbus: Murray
Edmonton: Grigorenko
Montreal: Galchenyuk
New York: Dumba
Toronto: Galchenyuk...wait..no my mistake. Forsberg lol.

OP's post in a nutshell. Useful.

EDIT: Totally avoided reading the proposal

lol wow you guys need to relax you take this a little to seriously. I started this thread for people to elaborate, not trash a fan base. The point was a way the leafs wouldn't have to give up Gardiner. Calm down take a breather people its just an online forum its not actually going to happen it all just for fun here.

It's not fun when you actually think franson is the difference between #5 and #1.

This. You actually thought that was enough? You didn't even add a second or third asset going to edmonton. You downgraded from one star to one fringe player in the hopes that the fringe would be enough for a potential superstar. It's a bad proposal. I'm not sorry.

That's not enough. And what it WOULD cost Toronto to move to #1 isn't worth the price. So let it go.

Where in the world is Frankie Beauchemin?? Even if you say Lupul isn't a star, Gardiner will be.
Selanne was traded for Kilger and Tverdovsky, so there goes your philosophy. The ironic part is that both of your teams brokered that deal.

Selanne was traded because when the Jets moves to Phoenix they could not afford both him and Tkachuk and Kilger was a 19 yr old 4th overall pick and Tverdavosky a 20 yr old 2nd overal pick at the time

And Gardiner was a mid first round not expected to be a star along with Lupul who was not a favorite of Carlyle and was coming off his second back surgery and a blood infection for Beauchmin who was a pretty solid defenseman for Anaheim

I don't really care about the reasoning that went behind the trade of Selanne, the point was that you can't trade slop for silver. And that point was the one I was debating
at the expense of this comparision.
BTW what did the Jets really give up to acquire Wheeler? Remember Stuart as the "throw in"

You can't trade stars for scraps unless there are circumstances your examples were terrible because both players in the Selanne trade had a bunch of value but turned into scraps + circumstances and Lupul had little value and Gardiner had some and Beauchamin was not a scrap and Atlanta gave up Peverly and Valabik for Wheeler and Stuart none of the players in that deal are or in all probability will ever be stars
