I don't know how/if it would work. It probably won't happen. But we'd certainly need to add something like Jensen + our 1st to get the 5th. If Burke's willing to part with it. Otherwise it's Schenn/Kadri+ a bit.

They also discuss a point that Oakmoose was arguing for the longest time. If at any point during his contract Luongo retires, the cap is off the books, no penalties. Of course again, Luongo can't go to management and say hey, i'm retiring in 4 years to help you guys out, but that is the general consensus between the TSN Insiders
The bit on 4-5 years was quite interesting. If true, one would think the only way he stays longer is if he's having continued success -- in which case no one would have a problem with keeping him.

Edit: It's also exactly the sort of thing you leak. "Luongo can't say this, but those close to him believe..."

Fair enough. I disagree. We have lots of goal scorers. What we need is some people who can get to the net against the Kings, Blues, Preds etc. which are all huge teams. Our GM has already said that's a priority and hence the trade for Kassian. I don't see Mac being a player that would interest the Canuck sat all.

Ballard? That's a non-starter. Leafs can't afford two bad contracts.

Gillis has said he wants youth and size.

I don't think many people would argue that Schenn would be a very likely piece going Vancouvers way.

I think Ashton would be a prospect of serious interest to Gillis.

Kulemin brings size, and could be a replacement for Raymond.

Schenn + Kulemin + Ashton
for
Luongo + 2nd

I added some links and a description to the OP (courtesy of AndyPipkin)

I also decided to name all the old threads in the OP off of James Bond movies (we have to many threads to use any other notable series ).

I disagree. We need someone whose creativity and skill opens up the space for players like Higgins and Hansen to crash the net.

Good, we can't afford to lose our defensive depth.

Not a fan of Scroeder thus far. Kadri is over-hyped.

As one of my leaf fan friends once said(yes a canuck can be friends with a leaf):
Kadri will never be good on the leafs. But put him on almost any other team and he'll be great.

There's no logical reason to agree, but I tend to agree. On the Canucks especially I see him doing well as a playmaker for Kesler and Booth. He certainly has potential, but he won't reach it on the Leafs.

The leafs have also identified size, and youth as what they want to bring in.

Really? I would be. Biggs is awful. Decent size, almost non-existent offensive upside.

Ballard isn't that bad BTW. He's a solid 4/5 defender.

No. He's coming on nicely. I think the prospects the leafs would be open to trading are Colborne and Holzer. Maybe one or both and a second or third rounder and maybe Armstrong would be good.

Kadri has produced more at the NHL level than every member of his draft class taken outside the top 5 besides Matthieu Perrault. Just screams bust, guys.
