Via Craig Morgan and TSN.

Also mentioned Yandle MAY be available, but straight from the horses mouth, ONLY for a bona fide top line player, not picks or prospects.

Derek Morris for Mike Kostka and a 3rd round pick.

EDIT: I thought Morris was a UFA at the end of the year. Not a bad cap hit for a veteran I suppose... but I don't think the Leafs would have a ton of interest.

It's up on TSN.ca

"We're right at the cliff as far as I'm concerned," GM Don Maloney told reporter Craig Morgan. "If we slide much further, all bets are off. We're going to go out and find assets. This is reality."

If the Yotes do go into sell-mode, I'd like to see the Leafs get in on Gordon and/or Klesla.

What would the Yotes be looking for? The quote makes it seems like picks, prospects, or young players to move forward with.

Penguins are scouting the Coyotes, right? There is also a rumor that Shero wants to add a top 6 forward and a 4th line player for depth.

I know Pens fans want Iginla, but if Shero doesn't want to pay that price, he can go after a cheaper top 6 depth player like Steve Sullivan and a 4th line guy like Torres or Gordon.

Could pick up Torres as an insurance for playing the hawks in the finals.

Gorden would be a serviceable player to get.

Boyd Gordon to the Leafs please. I'd offer up a significant prospect to get it done.

Pick one of Tyler Biggs, Stuart Percy, or Matt Finn and add a second round pick. If that's not enough, I'd be willing to add another, later round pick as well.

Acquiring Boyd Gordon would be perfect for the Leafs.

Lupul - Bozak - Kessel --- Scoring line
JVR - Kadri - Frattin / MacArthur --- Scoring line
Grabovski - Gordon - Kulemin --- Great defensive, shut-down type line
McLaren - McClement - Orr --- Grinding line.

I think the Leafs would end up firing 2 GMs in one season if this were the case

Blues would be very much interested in Klesla or Yandle.

Would love to get Yandle. Perron+?

How so? Gordon is very good defensively and Randy Carlyle has been saying all year that he hopes someone will step up to be that defensively dependable third line centre he could use in tight situations.

Tyler Bozak would be that player if the Leafs could find a top line C but everyone knows that isn't happening. Boyd Gordon would be the next best thing on the third line, IMO.

Because Boyd Gordon is a pending UFA, approaching 30 years of age, who tops out as a solid 3rd line C.

The Leafs aren't going to win the Cup just by adding Gordon.

To throw away those assets would be foolish, to put it lightly.

I think 'Yotes fans would be more than happy with just the 2nd rounder

Are you out your mind? Total overpayment.

Do want Derek Morris though.

Torres on the Blackhawks? I know they're professionals, but wouldn't there be some bad blood there.
