Bozak went to Denver, and spends a lot, if not all, of his offseason there. He would re-sign in a heartbeat

I think Bozak and Franson is closer. Bozak's production isn't that far off of ROR's, and he's almost the same age. Franson is proving he's more than capable and has some offensive upside. Iffy on adding Colborne to the deal....maybe a guy like D'Amigo though.

All in all though, I don't think trading for ROR in any way, makes sense for the Leafs.

Bozak is very pro-Denver. Almost an ideal alternate place for him to sign, and he'll probably get an offer there in the off-season if he isn't re-signed.

Colborne is also former DU.

even though i think gardiner for ROR is fair, from a leafs pov a deal that doesn't involve phaneuf, jvr, grabo, lupul, kessel, rielly, gardiner, kadri, frattin would make sense from the leafs. all other parts are available.

IF this happens it's not a move for a #1 center IMO. It's a move to acquire a long term #2

Lupul ? Kessel,

JVR ROR Kulemin

Frattin Kadri Komarov

I disagree. O'Reilly is relentless worker on the ice, a defensive forward with playmaking skills. Great fit with Kessel as his strengths are Kessels weaknesses.

I'd love to keep Bozak. He'd be a fantastic third line center.

Lupul - ROR - Kessel
JVR - Kadri - Frattin
Komarov - Bozak - Kulemin

However, if we can fill that '?' I am more than certain that we could start to contend.

Lupul-Getz-Kessel
JvR-ROR-Perry
Kulemin-Kadri-Frattin
Komarov-Mcclement-McClaren/Brown/Orr


We don't need defense and goaltending.

What i'd actually like to see is Kulemin get moved in a package for ROR then a guy like Chris Stewart brought in.

Lupul ? Kessel,

JVR ROR Stewart

Frattin Kadri Komarov

that is a PERFECT 2nd line IMO

I have been wondering about a thing regarding our team and it´s players origin.
A good player is a good player, simple as that. But how much pressure, if any, is there on Nonis to give the Leafs a more Canadian or even Ontarian image. It got me thinking when I watched Coach´s corner and Don went on about how there where no players from Ontario on our roster and that it was made up of American college kids. As usual Don generalize a lot but as usual he also have a good point. This team is based in the area who produces the most hockey players in the NHL but it does not reflect it´s roster. Since that show was broadcasted Kadri have become a regular, McClement, Kostka and Fraser have also been added but none of the 3 last ones is really in the long term plans.

Some posters have suggested that the owners want Nonis to draft a Ontarian/Canadian kid with star potential that they can market. Is that just made up stuff or does it hold value?

For me personally I dont really care that much. I do like a home town touch on the roster with added players from the US and Europe to give it a good mix and think there is some value in it as well. I am sure Wild signing Parise meant more to them then if he had been from New York even do he would obviously be the same player.

Who would you trade to get ROR and Stewart?

Which assets would you give up to Colorado to get ROR and still keep Bozak?

Who really knows. Should not make an ounce of difference, but we all know that real life is not that simple. Would it shock anyone that media company owners would view image as important However, Nonis probably realizes (or he should) that ultimately he will be judged on his win/loss record and that means BPA in his judgement.
