It would be if Bergeron wasn't a skating concussion.

But taking on Bergeron is like taking on a high risk mutual fund. One big hit and you lose everything, but if he's head heals to 100% he could score 80 points per season.

Even so, Toronto might have to add Stralman to that offer.

Like I said above,,,Bergeron is either a 'strike-out' or 'homerun'

Toronto has the cap room and cheaper players to make a deal happen.

And Boston has major cap issues....Bergeron might not be coming to Toronto, but i doubt he's back in Boston...they need his salary room for Krejci and/or Kessel.

Bergeron is only signed for 2 more years at 4.75. It's not that bad of a contract and not a huge risk for the Leafs.
I don't really think Stajan is in Burke's future plans.

His interview last week on the FAN590 he said:

"We are loaded at Centre next year, but that won't stop me from drafthing another. We already have: Garbovski, J. Mitchell, and Bozak in the top three positions moving forward into next year"

No word on Stajan...i'd say he's a goner this summer.

Having said that, retaining Lucic, Wheeler, Bergeron, Kessel, Krejci, Wideman makes a lot of sense, but its not clear thats what Chiarelli will do. Savard is your best player up front, and I think he'll be retained.

Going with all youth isnt an indication Chiarreli has given thus far. Not that I wont agree with Chiarreli, but without Savard Boston wont nearly be as dangerous a team they are at the moment.
Peter Chiarelli probably felt as if Tim Thomas was a must sign for the B's to be considered legitimate contenders next season. There's just no way they could walk away from the likely Vezina winner and team MVP and call themselves a better team for it. He's all but assured Rask will get his chance as a backup/platoon next season.

Letting Marc Savard walk after next season doesn't necessarily mean Chiarelli is going with an all youth movement. Like I said, because of the shrinking cap, his age, UFA status, and likely salary demands, he seems destined to be the odd man out. Bergeron and Krejci will also have plenty of experience by that point (Bergeron 6 years, Krejci 3). Assuming Bergeron stays healthy and Krejci becomes the player we all expect, I think it's a no brainer as to who the better 1-2 combo will be for the next 5 years.
