Great pick, glad to hear Gardiner isn't going anywhere.

With this direction I can see Schenn being moved much sooner rather than later.
You forgot about Schultz That would be three pairings with fantastic speed.

This is the reasoning behind them actually being interested in Luongo as their long-term goaltender because they aren't sure if Markstrom will be able to stay healthy.

This was from McGuire the other day I believe.

Since Markstrom hasn't shown anything at the NHL level, there's no way I give up a quality NHL young defenseman for another unproven goaltender.

Unproven for unproven is a lot more fair.

I understand that.

But I think Reilly will be ready for prime Top 4 minutes when Liles is in his last year(s) with the Leafs and will be sliding down the depth chart simply because of the youth influx coming in.

He's a great lockeroom guy and wouldnt cause waves if his role was reduced.

Reilly - Phaneuf
Gardiner - _____
Liles - _____

Really mobile pieces on each pairing, its just a matter of finding that perfect fit for each player.

Never mind, I don't think I would.

Edit: I wasn't aware that Markstrom has had knee problems. That's obviously a huge concern for a goaltender, and completely changes my original answer.

Really like those pairings but there is lack of defensive presence in that d-corps. Certainly don't want to be on the pk with those defenders.

Do you have any info on Shultz?

I think Schultz would be a perfect fit with Gardiner.

If Markstrom hasn't already made the jump, then its not worth giving up Luke Schenn, who is still a very good player (despite the response you hear from this board). With any young goalie, he needs time unless your name is Carey Price or Martin Brodeur. If not, then you won't see any true value until the age of 25-26 when he starts to hit his prime. Until then you won't see anything much out of him. He might give you one or 2 good seasons.

If Schenn and Percy pan out:

Reilly - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Schenn
Liles - Percy

i say we just trade Phaneuf right now for the best C possible and tank it out next year to get Jones

Rielly-Jones
Gardiner-Schultz

would be an INSANE top 4 in a couple of years ...

just keep Liles/Gunnar/Schenn/Franson/etc as our d core next year

lol me too man. Ducks now have Hiller, Gibson and Frederik Andersen. Maybe we could snag one of them. Doubt it though .
Damn they picked up andersen? wow.

Do you have any info on Shultz?

Not any info on his decision.

Just the fact that Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver and Detroit all are going to make efforts in contacting him as soon as they're able. Im sure there are others, but those are just the ones I know of at this point.

For anyone thiking Schultz to Toronto is a lost cause because we have defensive depth, there should be no worries.

Schultz doesn't feel entitled, he just feels that he can play in the NHL this upcoming season and doesn't mind working for it. He's a confident young man and defensive depth wont make or break his decision. It will certainly be a factor, but it wont eliminate Toronto from the pack.
