Roberto Luongo- roster player(willing to take on salary but not straight cap dump ie:useless player), prospect/young player, pick(depending on other assets).
Cory Schneider- young, impact player as part of any deal(top 4 d-man, top 6 foward)
David Booth- similarly priced right side defenseman? playmaking winger?
Keith Ballard- picks/prospects
Mason Raymond- picks/prospects
Ryan Kesler- not looking to move him, but will listen to offers. Only interested in impact player(s) in return.
Alex Edler- not looking to move him, but will listen to offers. Only interested in impact player(s) in return.

We'll have our roster and official trade block up tomorrow. Definitely looking for a #1 center and #1 winger. Several pieces are up for trade, including Cole, Schwartz, Stewart, Berglund, Elliot/Halak, draft picks, prospects (not Tarasenko). Oshie/Shattenkirk/Steen/Perron are going to be much harder for me to part with. And don't bother with Backes or Pietrangelo.
Deal with the Devils; Leafs send Lombardi to New Jersey
Toronto began moving forward with reshaping it's roster last night, agreeing to a late night trade that has sent speedy centre Matthew Lombardi to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for New Jersey's 3rd round selection in the upcoming entry draft, as well as the Leafs 4th round selection previously acquired for Dave Steckel.
"Matthew is a solid young player, but we wanted to get into the 3rd and 4th rounds in the upcoming draft and we feel we've done that now. We're happy with this move." Leafs GM TribalPhoenix stated in a release this morning.
"Given the moves we plan on making this off-season, this was a deal that needed to be made as Matthew will get a change to prove he's an impact player in the NHL. We wish him well in New Jersey."
