Kadri alone would make no sense.

This is obviously completely untrue, or a very old one.

Lol Waters. I like the guy but his trade rumours are ALWAYS wrong. Probably fishing for followers.

Also, maybe it's just me but I find most of his tweets to be gibberish. Like he's dictating to a 4 year old kid who is tweeting for him.

Trade a no Brainer

If it was talked about before the start of this season, Yandle is considered a Stud D that can do it all. I'm sure Phoenix turned it down if presented over the last two years. It's only the last two month's that it would be considered a bad deal for the Leafs.

Certainly could have been the case even this summer.
I highly doubt that Burke had really high expectations for Kadri and Frattin. I think he considered them both NHL worthy but not to the caliber of Yandle. Not a shocker.
There's no way that this trade could happen now; nonis would be lynched.
Also: remember how Gillis was at a couple Marlies games and and how luongo tweeted about Kadri after his hattrick. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Kadri was offered to the Canucks in 2012 as well. Gillis was at a Marlies game in Ontario shortly before Burke was fired.

And to add with Yandle along with Gardiner and Rielly it would allow Leafs to replace the players traded and then some. What could you get for Rielly and Gardiner, or Phaneuf on the open market.

With the way Kadri is playing, I don't think anyone would trade him straight up for Yandle let alone adding all the other stuff.

Watters has lost his mind. Though admittedly it's been gone for quite some time now.

Kadri alone is overpayment.

Frattin + 1st is also overpayment.

Combined, that is just an LOL at how ridiculous this rumor is. Obvious lie is obvious.

It's really funny to think that someone might be pretending to be Bill Watters, I wish I thought of that...

Why in the name of all that is holy would Toronto offer Kadri as part of a package for Yandle?

Unless this is last year? If this is a deadline rumour its bogus IMO.

We've been waiting too long for a top center and while Kadri could easily cool off, you don't trade a guy playing like he is right now.


Should have gone after Morris or Klesla though IMO...

Based on the Giroux/Ranger tweet after it, I have to imagine this was a while back, not yesterday.

Well, a date attached to that rumour would make a lot of sense.

I think Watters needs to get a grip on who offered and who rejected this.

If you switch Phoneix offered Yandle and Nonis rejected it makes a lot more sense.

Kadri was once thought of as an organizational outsider. A bubble prospect at best, and Wilson clearly didn't like him.

Frattin could play, was an up and comer and had some mojo but not scoring.

The 1st would have ended up being Morgan Rielly or someone selected right after him.

In many respects, Phoenix could have made itself a lot better. But, maybe not initially, hence the nixing on the deal.

Maybe I'm alone on this, but I could see this deal proposal being floated.

If there's one thing about the Leafs we've been able to learn, especially within the last two years, it's that they never seem satisfied or feel they have the right mix of skill and depth on D. And they will certainly be doing more tweaking, in the next 2-3 years. Once Finn, Percy, Riellly, Blacker, MacWilliam, Nilsson start coming online.

Lol. Is Watters huffing paint thinner?

There is no way Nonis offered anything close to that.

Fwiw, the Leafs have also seemed to have been interested in Phoenix players for a while. They have also expressed previous interest in Winnik, and Doan(IIRC).
