second--poni is one year away from UFA--so he would be a rentel player

Third--Poni stats are misleading IMO-- The only commen ground leaf fans and other fans have in common is that the leafs need to re-boot most of the roster. Did Poni get so much time becuase he earned or because the leafs had no one else that could play.

Kaberle is the most valuable assit to the deal right now-- but according to most scouting reports--Schenn is better then his brother and long term his is by far the best asset in the deal.

It will be a war all summer over just hoe valuable the leaf players are and what they are worth between leaf fans and fans of other teams.

I like white---but he looks like a career 3rd liner. to me atleast

Wrong. Poni averaged 15 minutes and 47 seconds ice time. Sounds like pretty standard 2nd line ice time. Definitely not enough to pad his stats.

i think DL should ask for Kadri instead of the future pick...then call up Murray and do a Kadri+ for Cowen.

Way too much to give up for Brayden Schenn. Even if this was true there is no way Burke would do that. He apparently wouldn't even move 7th + our two 2nds.

but here is the thing

all indication is that Burke never offered any team the number 7 or other picks

he is trying to move players. Who would I ratehr have Schenn or Kaberle--I pick Schenn--his upside is too much to ignore

so leafs want to rebuild through the kings...uhhh...no!
karble will go to a team that think their 1 or 2 players away from winning the cup.
kings needs are offense and defence.
only value is the 2010 pick, which i don't think they want to give up, because i could be 1st overall next year (T. Hall).

Isn't that what Dreger said on the first day of the draft? That the price to move for Toronto was their two 2nds?

I know what you're talking about though.

Kings ae building a good war chest of young studs

Imagine that! A player potential improving significantly after getting drafted by your favorite team?!?! I never would have imagined that!

Every single Leafs player is getting underrated, it seems.

Please look at this from LA's POV?

Poni: adequate 2nd line winger, UFA in a year
White: decent #4/5 d-man, and LA is a team that has a ton of d-man looking for playing time.

Who trades a blue-chip stud for spare parts, which is what White & Poni are, and that's not being overly critical of the Leafs players. Both guys are nice players, but no one is going to trade you a dollar for 3 quarters.

Well leading up to the draft there was talk that DL wanted Kadri but Schenn fills more needs.
I do not have a source but Tom Priesing for Luke Schenn sounds about right.
C'mon Leafs fan the kings got your guy move on!

Leafs fans need to let go......Schenn is an LA King and it's going to stay that way for a very long time.

Somehow, not only could 2 professional GM's not tell who was getting/giving the pick to even out the value, but DD was trying to sell us that Chia thought that he was getting the 7th overall. IMO, this was just a blatant CYA attempt after TSN reporting a deal was basically done. How in the hell does the 7th overall "mistakenly" get included in a trade? It doesn't IMO, and the press was just blatantly making stuff up before the draft. And somehow - the stuff that was being made up was very Pro-Leafs. I know the posters on the board only were repeating what was in the media - but it gets really old when some homeristic crap just gets made up out of thin air and then people run with it.

Actually Burke commented on the trade when he was miked during the draft. Sorry you had to write all of that

No spite whatsoever. Murray was infact offering a deal to Burke, but it appeared it was a no-brainer for Burke to select Kadri when he found out Murray's intentions.
Really?



This indicates otherwise

Leafs fans have found their new Jordan Staal. We'll be treated to about 2 million trade proposals over the next few years because of this.

I do like the Leafs, though. If I had to pull for a team other than Pittsburgh it would be the Leafs. I was hoping Brayden Schenn to the Leafs and then sign the Sedins and then trade for the 4 Staal brothers. It's all about family with Burke.

A few years? Someone needs to read the CBA.

Besides Brayden probably won't make the team this coming season, which means that Luke will be a UFA at least two seasons before Brayden, just in time for Luke to join the Kings for their cup runs.
