Kaberle 4.25,

Kessel - 2.2m/1yr
Schaefer*sp* 2.1m/2yr
1st rounder '09 top5 protected.

Yes. Schaefer is on waivers. But as every schnieder post had included there are reasons for taking a player who was on waivers. Namely the ability to move them at the deadline for some gain. Schaefer would get playing time in toronto. probobly 2nd line and 2nd line PP. but he would get playing time and if he did well may recoup something extra at the deadline. and also toronto would have no problem paying him to play in the minors or half his salary on recall.

Phil Kessel is the obvious target here. Everyone knows him. and what he brings to the table for toronto.

The top5 protected first rounder is there as value for toronto and is partially the reason they pull the trade. Toronto doesnt care about the protection its about extra assets and I just felt that a pure 09 first on a team that may flouder badly *although i think they make the playoffs* was a little much value.

The money works out beutifully and toronto would be glad to take any 1year contracts you need gone in exchange for picks.
Top 5 protected?? You kidding? No way Boston is going to suck that bad this year. Boston's blueline isn't THAT bad.

It would be a funny trade, though... because I'm not sold on Kessel and it would be funny to watch the Yank go to Toronto and then stink things up there.

pretty hard to trade him (he will say no) however if the Leafs miss the playoffs (good possibility) The NTC will be null for a period of time this summer and will kick in again next year. Trading a 4M 50-60 point all star dman will be crazy once the salary cap goes down next year. Canadian $ is currently 0.85 hit 0.82 this morning and will likely keep coming down. Hopefully Cdn teams had the foresight to hedge the next few years salaries
when the loonie was above par.
I don't think it will keep dropping but thats another topic for another board.
