Reasoning: Leafs receive a sure thing in Nikita Filatov to help jump start the offense, and more importantly the franchise. Columbus receives the 7th overall pick in this year's draft which could be one of Evander Kane, Brayden Schenn or Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson if Phoenix opts to go with a defenseman at 6. Also, Columbus gets a quality top six forward in Stajan or Poni, while also helping their power play with a right handed shot in Stralman. All of Stajan, Poni, and Stralman are relatively young and cheap and can contribute to the team immediately and down the road.

Might be the time of day that makes my thinking so ill-advised, but what are your thoughts on this trade. Don't take this too seriously I'm probably stuck in either NHL 09 or fantasy league mode, and it's my first trade proposal and I know how people hate Leaf trades. What would the Leafs have to add other than Schenn for Jackets fans to even consider this?
Forgot.

there is no way that the leafs would do this. i think that Kane, Schenn or Svennsson can just as good if nit better then Filatov

I just see a great prospect as someone like Thomas Hickey, not a top prospect like Filatov who is truly something special.
The point i was trying to make (which you obviously missed) was that NOONE was comparing Filatov and Stralman, AT ALL. This trade the way i see it is more Filatov for 1st + Stralman +.., and not Filatov for Stralman +1st +.. . No comparations between Stralman and Filatov were made in this thread at all, except you. We all know Filatov is much better prospect. Noone said they were close.

Stralman is a utility player? Thats like saying Max Pacioretty is a utility player.... or wait he's a Habs prospect, what was I thinking, he's blue chip.
