Some people might say why would Hamhuis accept a reasonable offer from the Leafs, but maybe he's thirsty to play somewhere that hockey is number one. He's spent his entire career in Nashville. Now that he's got his choice, he'd be a fool to not consider Toronto.

Burke has a great reputation as a hockey man, so when he talks to Hamhuis and his agent about his plans for the team they'll take him seriously. I'm sure if he plans on signing Hamhuis its because there's a deal on the table reasonable enough to accept for Kaberle that would boost our team further. That along with whatever other free agents or trades he's cooking up he can help paint a rosy enough picture to warrant his consideration.

burke will need to overpay big time.

why toronto? he could go to van where he's from and chance to win, why would he choose the 29th team in the league.

No offense to the Leafs but I don't think quick fix signings/trades are going to lead to them being anything more than a team that flirts with the playoffs every season.
So far his plan is exactly what JF Jr.'s plan ended up being despite the best intentions:

Year 1-2: "We will build through prospects and the draft"

Years 2-3: board pressure (and the pressure of having dealt #1 picks that are turning into HIGH number one picks) to get into the playoffs now before Richard Peddie gets lynched. This is where we are now.

Years 3-5: spending up to the cap on free agents who are overpaid compared to their equivalent counterparts because of supply and demand and the limited talent available to plug holes in the lineup.

Year 6: back to square one.

His saving grace so far is that he is seeming to only bring in players who are 25 or less (with the exception of Giggy but he is a goalie and I think he will rebound) and he has more clout in his contract than JF Jr. had to resist board pressure.

He still has the ability to avoid the mistakes of Years 3-6 if he can stay patient.

Vancouver is also hockey-first and is actually a cup contender.

Pretty much. Van has a real top six, all under contract for the next 4 years, theyre only adding bottom forwards.

Van can offer likely more money than TO could if they needed to. He's not in the discussion.

And Burke will lose. Hamhuis has gone off the deep end with his demands.

Makes sense. Sign Hamhuis, then trade Schenn and Kaberle for Savard. WOrks well for everyone involved.

Hamhuis basically = Beauchemin....so you've gotta assume that Beauchemin would be on his way out.

That being said, maybe the Leafs do something like flip Beauchemin along with Gunnarsson for James Neal and a couple prospects for James Neal. Keep Kaberle, top 4 is just as good, but you now have a very solid group of top 6 wingers with the oldest one being 24 years old...

If Leaf fans think Kadri is just going to step in and be their #2 center, then I feel very sorry for them.

That's a good idea from the Stars POV. How can they refuse an idea like that?

beauch + gunnarson for neal....wow i would honestly make that deal in 2 seconds flat if i could. im not sure if the stars would be down with it though. if possible i would love to add something to try and get niskanen out of dallas. i think he would make a good bottom pairing guy for us if we traded beauch and gunnarson.


neal bozak kessel
kulemin grabs/kadri versteeg
sjostrom hanson xxxxxx
brown mitchell orr

phaneuf schenn
hamhuis komi
niskanen anything

monster/giggy

make it happen...pleaaaaaaaaaaase

Hamhuis is overrated. I would rather keep Kaberle and sign the "top 6 forward" via free agency.

As for Toronto, I suspect Burke had planned to make a big run at Patrick Marleau to shore that team up down the middle and is now scrambling to figure out where he should spend his cash, same as last year when the Sedins didn't reach the UFA market.
dude... is this honestly all you Canucks fans have to ***** about?

honestly... move on!

What's EDM's real big plan? trading O'Sullivan for Big ol Vandemeer?? like Kyper said it's Walmart shopping at it's best, if you call what Tambo is doing, by sucking for years while picking up high picks (being a real GM) than go ahead. But don't talk crap about Burke when he's actually going out and making moves. Your GM is just sitting back and reaping the benefits from a garbage team. Sure you got Hall, but Tambo didn't do anything for it, your team just sucks!!
