Sharp or Bolland

Leafs fan coming in peace, I was just curious, what scenario would you guys rather see, given your teams cap issues and their salaries.

Trading Sharp who will bring a higher return but produces more points.

Or trading Bolland and moving Sharp from the wing to centre-ice though Bolland is a very strong shorthanded player, shutdown centre who can chip in pretty well offensively and is an energy dynamo.

It's a tough call but having to choose - I'ld keep Bolland.

Sharp - better offense, better speed, better trade return
Bolland - better defense, 5 years younger, better contract ($0.5M less and 2 more years)

The only thing that gives me pause about choosing Bolland is the back injury. If Hawk's management is convinced in will not be a problem moving forward, than Bolland should be the guy they keep.

Bolland's back worries me...But he played phenomenal in the playoffs and he is a great 2 way player

I love Sharp and everything he does for this team...

I'll give up Versteeg but only if the leafs take Huet

If I absolutely had to trade one I'd trade Sharp. That being said I don't think either one is going anywhere. I'd much rather dump Versteeg and Buff

Pretty much. I think Versteeg is good as gone, but if it were to come down to 2 guys to trade, I think it would be Sharp or Byfuglien, NOT Sharp or Bolland. We have far more depth at wing than center. If that's the case, Byfuglien should be the one traded. Sharp adds more intangibles to this team.

Yeah, but if we need it, Buff can play defenseman as well (not saying it is his ideal position, but he can).

I really don't want either of those two gone, as Buff has 250+ intangibles himself... tough decisions this off-season.
