If the Leafs won the lottery, would you be willing to give it up for the 2nd. pick and Dipietro?
Someone should do a poll.
Dipietro and top 5 pick.
why would the leafs trade a franchise forward for a 1st round pick and a 1A goalie? especially with our power to purchace franchise UFA goaltenders BETTER than dipietro (aka. the guy whos not better than luongo)
the only way i see the leafs moving a guy like crosby would be for a proven all-star like Nash
If we mysteriously ended up with the top pick, I'd move it without a doubt for any of these three:
Kovalchuk, Ovechkin, Thornton along with a talented prospect or an early pick
That said.... the only reason the top pick would command that much is because of the hype that Crosby has received and I fully expect him to have less of an impact in the NHL than the aforementioned players.
