Would you do this (Draft)

I love everything about the draft …...
Toronto Maple Leafs in a rebuilding mode ..did not get any substantial Draft pick additions ….at the deadline ….
Would you accept to part with this years MTL First Round Pick for The Maple leafs first in 2009…….the trade would need some fine tuning
On maybe a late round Pick …..
Looks like a stock 2009 draft held in MTL...
Mtl would have in 2009

2 First and 2 seconds

Just a thought waiting for the playoffs

I would do that no question. If the Leafs were smart they wouldn't.

There is no way the Leafs would make that trade. They'd need to *REALLY* want someone who was still on the board at our pick to evn consider it, and even at that, next year's picks have substantial value right now because of even a *shot* at Tavares.

Something like our first this year and Anaheim's 2nd next year that we got from Washington for Toronto's first next year... I would do. Toronto still probably wouldn't, but we're getting a *little* closer.

Toronto does not do this trade.... their first next year could be Tavares.... There is no way they make the deal.

I can't see the Leafs doing this deal at all...

That said, I have the feeling that Gainey could be a major player at the draft.

I would prefer to see him wait until July 1st. Don't worry guys, I'm not talking about Hossa. We would need a solid veteran but we can't afford to give more than a two years contract.

Brian Rolston would be a good option but I would be surprised to see the Wild let him go. The guy I would like is Marcus Naslund. His era is over in Vancouver and even if he's not the player he once was, he's still a great leader and a valuable player. I think that he would look great on the 2nd line with Koivu.

OUT:
-Michael Ryder (2,9M$)
-Bryan Smolinski (2M$)
-Patrice Brisebois (0,7M$)

RE-SIGN:
-Mark Streit (3years/10M$)

IN:
-Marcus Naslund (2years/9-10M$)

What do you guys think?

I would take a chance on Naslund. His production may be dropping, but he doesn't have good linemates consistently in Vancouver. Their only other good offensive players are really the Sedins and he's often separated from them.

A. Kostitsyn - Plekanec - Kovalev
Naslund - Koivu - S. Kostitsyn
Higgins - Chipchura - Streit
Latendresse - Lapierre - Kostopolous

Looks decent to me. Then there's also Grabovski and others to consider.

If we could pick him up at a discount (maybe 4m for 1 year?) then i'd do it.. Otherwise, nah.

The reason I could see this trade being having a legit chance (or any team like the Leafs) is because it would give them two 1st rounders. They could throw those 2 first rounders to a team or something for a young player (like a Jeff Carter) OR they could move up in the draft. That would help them compete next year.. and there is no way that Toronto is in the running for Tavares. Sundin will be back.. and they will compete for a playoff spot in March again.

I would prefer to keep three offensive lines:

AKostitsyn-Plekanec-Kovalev
Naslund-Koivu-Latendresse
Higgins-Grabovski-SKostitsyn
Streit-Chipchura-Lapierre
*Kostopoulos, Bégin and D'Agostini

Naslund is falling. Bad linemates notwithstanding, he is not skating at the speed he used to. We can only think it'll get worse, and 5 millions is too much for such a gamble.

Marian Hossa, however... remember, he'll be UFA

Well, IMO Brian Rolston would be the ideal choice but like I said, I can't see why the Wild would let him go.

If we could get Naslund at 4,5M$, I would take a chance on him...

And if we sign Hossa for 6-8 years, how are we supposed to find the money to re-sign our young players in the years to come?

UFA its Rolston or bust for me

otherwise make some kind of trade, or promote more youth.

as for this thread, why would the leafs do that? it would be nice for gainey to get a couple more picks for next year though, but if they already have 2x 2nd rd next draft, they could try to move up to pick earlier too

Thats what id do for the top 2 lines. Your bottom 2 are pretty bad though. I expect Latendresse to have his best season next year as well.
And we're not gonna resign Streit to play on a 3rd line, he also said it himself, next year he wants to play D.

I'd take Fedorov to replace Smokes and for many reasons. He won't cost that much and would be an ideal center for the 3rd line and would be a nice fit for all the young Russian/Belorussian players, considering Valentenko might also be ready for next season. This would also leave much cap space in the upcomming two seasons to sign all our young RFAs and UFAs for long-term contracts.

I don't want Naslund. He's not better than Higgins right now. For me, it's Rolston too, or maybe Shanahan if he finally wants to come in MTL.

Imagine the huge drama bomb if TO ended up trading their 2009 pick and it ends up being good for Tavares.
