What's really hilarious is how people are brushing off Kesler even though he'd be the Leafs' best centre since Sundin.

He had a 40 goal season recently and on this team? He'd easily be the number 1 center.

Indeed...we have Bozak and Connolly to fight it out at the one hole. Last thing we need is a presidents trophy winning Selke calibre guy like Kesler messing things up around here....

Ryan Kesler, when healthy and at his best, is what Galchenyuk's ceiling is.

He came back last year hurt. The year before he scored 40 goals. Depending which version shows up he's a potential #1..

he was a beast for USA in the olympics as well. when playing 100% healthy he can be a #1 without a doubt.

With the high price and extremely limited availability for a young(ish) centre good enough to be a significant upgrade over Bozak I tend to think we're gonna go into camp with Colborne and Kadri fighting for that #1 C spot with Colborne coming out on top.

The only trade that makes sense to me is moving Kadri + for a similar prospect who projects better as a centre then Kadri. But I have no idea who that could be. Maybe Colin Wilson?

Back to the world we actually live in, Gardiner is awesome, but (assuming Grabo doesn't go) having Grabo and Kesler gives us a hell of a 1-2.

I wonder if Henny was hinting at Schultz; with the tampering rumours being true...

Be one of the better ones in the East. Kesler would be filthy as our 1C. I can imagine what the price would be.

Lol, I'm aware of that. It's just that you made it sound like it's a defining quality of his.

The ONLY way i would take on Lu is if Kesler is in the deal....

TOR: Kesler + Luongo
VAN: Kadri + Franson + Colborne + Connolly + 2nd 2013

anything more i would say NO!

I'd do that, but add a cap dump instead of Connolly. Give em Komi, either way I don't see them trading Kesler, but who knows. He was pretty bad these playoffs.

No way we get Kesler for that... Although I could see Connolly going the other way. I think if (it Ain't happening but if) Kesler is involved, Gardiner is going the other way.

Yeah right. The guy is a defensive stud, who puts up point and is a massive pest.

He's one of those guys you love when he's on your team, but hate him when he's not.

When you think about it, you gotta look at the human element of a Luongo deal. Burke and Gillis don't like each other and neither one will want to look like the guy that got screwed with one guy getting the better of the other.

With that said, it actually makes more sense to make it a larger deal so that both guys can talk about how they got the best players in the deal and spin it however they want.

If Burke sends a 1st for Luongo, he looks stupid, but if Gillis ships out a top 10 goalie in the league without getting a 1st, then he looks stupid. Add a couple pieces to the deal to make it so determining true cost is up for debate.

Just a thought

Hopefully the nucks fans don't see this, they'd go berserk. Some of your evaluations are terrible.

Kesler + Lu for Kadri, Colborne, Franson, Connolly and a 2nd? Why on Earth would Vancouver do this?
