Because JVR+Frattin=Okposo+Bailey

In fact, I could even edge towards the NYI two on this

No, I don't. JVR is easily the best of the four, in fact the best of the six.

The Leafs trio have been slower to develop, but today they're certainly better(factual, yet based on what's been a short season thus far) and have a higher overall ceiling (in my personal opinion).

Van Riemsdyk is better than all of them, so him.

Bailey>Frattin
Okposo<JVR

Too close to make the call, so therefore...

Grabner>>>Kadri=NYI

Which line has been carrying their team? Ok. TML trio win hands down:

- Younger
- More Offensive potential
- About same defensively
- Way better building block.

Toronto.

Nazem Kadri >> Josh Bailey
JVR >> Okoposa
Frattin << Grabner

From a Toronto POV I wouldn't trade JVR for any of them. I wouldn't trade Kadri for anything of them. I would be hesitant to trade Frattin for any of them - but as of now that's only because of chemistry.

Bailey is not better then Frattin.

Toronto without even thinking twice and I'm the furthest thing from a homer.

Last year the older Isles trio received much more ice time than the Leafs' trio, and was slightly more productive, but significantly less physical.

This year - still with significantly less minutes - the younger Leafs trio is crushing the Isles' trio in production, and continuing their significant edge in physical play.

Hard not to see Kadri and JVR as the only 2 of the 6 players here with true topline potential anymore, as well.


Not sure why anyone would choose the Isles' trio, to be honest.

I have it this way. This coming from a NYI fan.
So what will Toronto give us for Bailey?
