Leafs overpay to get their #1 centre and a local boy to be the face of the franchise.
Leafs use compliance buyout on Dipietro in the summer (~$24 million actual money).
Isles get depth everywhere. Kessel and Bozak would play with Moulson on Isles top line. Grabo takes #2 centre spot. A premium young offensive defenceman in either Gardiner or Reilly and a shutdown defender in Gunnarson would help out on the Isles blueline.
Because Toronto is never going to get one otherwise?
adorable, ignorance at its finest. To the OP, do you seriously believe Wang would make a trade to benefit his team? Taking on cap scares that man to death. I'll just play the season out and see how the guys do rather than make any kind of trade. We will stick to being the team that will "never get a number one center"
