We give up White, Hollweg/Stajan, Cola, Hayes, possible top 10 pick and Antropov for 1 guy. He's good but we are REBUILDING, if he doesn't sign with us, we'd give them Hayes, Cola, top 10 pick and Antropov for nothing.
First off, if Stajan/Hollweg + White gets us a first, Fletch is epic. If we did manage to get every Leaf fan's dream come true with 2 first rounders, especially giving up what we did, why then would we trade it away? Especially if we want to sign Gabby, we could have a shot at him for free. No, the first part is unrealistic (but would be sweet if it happened), and the second part is dumb for the Leafs. Picks are gold for us right now.
'Grats to mattystajan who for once manages to put together a trade where the Leafs don't completely rip the other team off, (not the Phoenix one, that trade's just awful for the Coyotes). That said, there's no way we'd cough that up for Gaborik.
