Bryan Little to Toronto.

Assuming that Atlanta is looking to be competitive next year and gain a little depth, this is the offer that Burke should make for Bryan Little.

To Atlanta: Tomas Kaberle, Jiri Tlusty, and a 2011 1st round draft pick.
To Toronto: Bryan Little.

Atlanta gets a good veteran defenseman to pair with Bogosian (they'd make an awesome pair), a solid NHL-ready prospect in Tlusty (he excels at right wing, though he's a left handed shot), and a 1st round draft pick in 2011.

first off kaberle would be on the 2nd pairing with hainsey

2nd little is 21 years old and a 31 goal scorer in his first full season

little>tulsty and kaberle and some pick you can't even begin to predict doesn't make up the difference

It makes no sense for either team.

Atlanta is starved for young forwards. With the possibility of losing both Kovalchuk and Kozlov next off season we can't trade our only good young roster forward. I also believe that TO could find a more suitable package somewhere else.

Why would ATL trade Little...their only good forward not named Kovalchuk. IMO, they should be adding good forwards because they don't hae enough of them.

Why would Kaberle be on the 2nd pair? Him and Bogosian would be amazing together.

You guys are just being ridiculous here.

Little is a 31 goal scorer in his first full season. I'd put his trade value at the present time on par with nearly any player in his draft year (with the obvious exceptions of Toews and Backstrom). I'd easily see his trade value being at LEAST at the level of Kessel, Okposo, and Mueller (note I said AT LEAST because I think he is worth more). And Kaberle wouldn't get you the left skate of any of these young players.

About the only asset on Toronto that I see bring Little in return would be Schenn,and I'm guessing you'd have to add to him to get Atlanta to raise an eyebrow.

Kaberle will help out there offense immensely, and Tlusty is NHL-ready. Tlusty was also unbelievable in the second half of the AHL season, and will likely produce next year.

Fine, let's propose a deal in which Toronto gets a 31-YO dman with 2 years left on his deal, and a productive AHL'er for Schenn. Let's see how much you guys like that.

He would but with the possibilty of Kovalchuk leaving next season, they will need Little a lot. He scored 31 goals in his first full season as most stated here.

atltanta lacks forward depth, not good forwards

kovalchuk, kozlov, little, peverley, white

that's 5 top 6 forwards, they just need one more which they are hoping to add this offseason

atlanta was 9th in scoring last season, it's not like they are starved for offense

Please refresh my memory. I didn't realize Toronto was stocked with talented young centers who can score 30 goals.

Agreed . Little had two 50+ assist men feeding him the puck in Vyacheslav Kozlov and Todd White . Kovulchuk was also a player who got about 50 assists on that team

I don't think Atlanta needs any more offensemen on the team , probably more premier defensive defenseman or two way forwards (Jordan Staal perhaps or draft this type of player)

counter proposal

to toronto
hainsey
machacek

to atlanta
schenn

it's about the same tyhing really, maybe hainsey is a little less skilled than kaberel but he did score 35+ points with limited powerplay time and machacek is a skilled ahler that could be in the nhl next season

seems pretty damn stupid now doesn't it

Do you honeslty believe Tomas Kaberle (all-star defenseman) , Jiri Tlusty (point per game forward in the AHL same age as Little), a 2010 1st round pick (will most likely be a top 10 pick) a fair deal for Toronto ?

Furthermore adding Luke Schenn to the table ?
