Burke has said repeatedly, that while he considered the possibilty of this years first being a lottery pick, he didn't think it probable........at the time of the trade the Leafs were 6-2 in preseason and sailing along.....

It's possible that he and Chiarelli are just working out that part of the deal, not as a favour but as part of the original agreement...........who knows?
I thought the exact same thing...

Chiarelli can only negotiate with 2 teams. Burke reminds him about the shots Chiarelli took at him in the media over the Kessel deal and tells him to get stuffed.

Now Ottawa has no space or interest.

In the meantime Savard talks to Kovalchuk about hooking up in Toronto ...
Way to go there ULF....stay tuned for more "Kovi to Toronto" threads.

I had the same dream last night about Kovy after I heard the Savard rumours....then I had to clean the mess I made on the floor.

Stalberg is not a top 6 forward just because he plays top 6. He has speed and potential but we will have to wait to see.
When are you guys going to realize that the fans don't run the show, the GM does. PC is also the one shopping Savard and the only realistic team that he can deal Savard to is the Leafs, makes it kind of hard to try and drive up a price for him.

So there's closure to this miserable season and I can get a general idea of what this team will be icing next season.

Don't be surprised if Burke is trying to reacquire HIS OWN 2011 first round draft pick in this deal for Savard and PC may do it. I think a lot of hockey people... including Chiarelli are realizing that the Leafs will probably not be a 29th place team next year in a weaker draft year. The Leafs improved immensely after the Calgary and Anaheim trades last season and with the emergence of younger players like Bozak, Gunnarsson, Gustavsson, and possibly Kadri things can only get better. Add in the rebuilding of teams like Nashville and Florida and we could end up in the 8-14 draft slot quickly. Wouldn't surprise me at all if we get it back.

That's a quick way to decimate the team and everything we've been building the past couple years. Thats alot of bodies and talent on the way out. Not even Bobby Ryan can play two wings and defense at the same time.

I think there are some nice pieces here already and shipping out three or four players for one does not make sense. I don't see Bobby Ryan ever being traded, we would have a better chance at Corey Perry and in my opinion-a better all around player.

I don't think for one minute that it will take much of anything to get Savard. To move guys like Kullemin to get him I would not understand that. I heard today that his cap hit is 4mill but his actual pay this year is 7mill, don't know if that is true. If that is the case, the number of teams lining up to take that salary are small. All TO should be sending are second tier prospects from the AHL. Boston has too many bodies down the middle and you guys know this as well, by mid season players will begin to grow unhappy with their roles and ice time. Especially if the team is not rolling. I don't think our first is coming back. That is gone boys.

IMO. I think Savard for a soft trade makes great sense for how TO is managed now. PITT seems to be high on Kabs and I would not be surprised if Burke targets Staal. He would look great at #2 for us. Then we have other assets to move to bring in another winger.

Chia pet is in a tough spot right now and it is up to Burke to make him sweat this one out.
