As a Leafs fan I don't see a Kaberle for Brown deal going down unless Kadri or Schenn is added to sweeten the pot.

Brown is a young warrior with an outstanding contract going forward.

You think Berger is a Leafs fan?

I don't see why this doesn't belong here compared to all the other links to blogs and rumours.

Do Burke and Berger have mutual dreams or something?

Berger's dreams are the Leafs finishing 30th overall every year.

I cant see the Kings deal Brown. If there are discussions with the Kings I could see something along the lines of their 1st round pick, another average roster guy and maybe a lower prospect.

I wouldn't mind Simmonds but he may be another untouchable for the Kings.

This always happends: Whenever a Leaf player is rumoured to go somewhere, the player on the opposite team is vastly overrated. Dustin Brown is no "Untouchable Young Star" as most of you are painting him as. He's not that good.

Moller and a 2nd rounder for Kaberle sounds good to me.

The reason some of our fans think that that is because they are bombarded by **** from tools like Berger, Cox, Simmons, Watters, etc, etc,

i.e. most "Leaf writers" are just as bad as the worst fans but somehow duped some poor sap to pay them.

It seems to me that Leafs fans have continously come on here and over rated what the Leafs should recieve from another team in return for Kaberle. Some say a 1st round, top 10 pick in this draft. Some say a top prospect like Schenn. Some believe it should be a top young player.

Maybe not. But fact is, he is our captain. As well as a solid top 6 forward, and is signed to the the most cap-friendly deal in the league.

It has nothing to do with "untouchable"

Brown's the Captain and has a great relationship with the other young players in the locker room as well as with the older veterans. He's got a good contract, plays big and can chip in 20-30 goals a year. Sure he's overrated on these boards, but he's a great fit with the Kings especially as the Kings are going to be very cap conscious over the next few years in which he's locked up at good value. He may be "overrated" and may not be "untouchable" by your definition, but the Kings have zero reason to trade him. The Kings have expendable forwards in Stoll and Williams who have bigger contracts and contribute less. The Kings also don't have a dire need for anything that is available from the leafs. Dean Lombardi has a plan that he's been following for the last few years and will continue following until the Kings are solid contenders, and that plan does not include trading Dustin Brown.

Leaf fans should stop getting ******** because Kings fans don't want to trade pieces of their team, pieces that they have been waiting very patiently to come together, for Kaberle.

Very well said. When trade rumors/proposals/speculation/whatever are thought up, very rarely are the reasons for making said trade considered.
As in, "Why do the Kings trade Dustin Brown for Kaberle? Does it make them a better team?" (FYI, no, it does not.)
