You said 40+ ppg game. No doubt he can peak at 40 goals but improving 22 points from his best season is a stretch. Even with a more steady number one center I doubt he is much more than a 30-40 goals 60-70 point guy unless Toronto finds the next Adam Oates. It's not like he is doing everything himself as it is now; he has one of the best passers in the league Kaberle setting him up and a line built around him scoring goals.

His best season was 36 goals and 60 points; you can argue he only played 70 games that season, but if you look at this season even playing 82 games he barely hits 30 goals and doesn't his 60 points. I can see him improving somewhat, but he hasn't really improved his game in the past 2.5 seasons. He is a good first line winger, but too 1 dimensional to be the 40 - 50 goal scoring 80+ point guy Toronto wants him to be.

Schenn/Kessel/Kadri for Malkin/Lovejoy

As a Leafs fan, I'd do it. I'm not convinced Pittsburgh would, though.

This never benefits Toronto. Our second line will be missing 2 valualable assets who are doing better then Getzlaf themselves.

The Rangers had Marc Staal and Henrik Lundqvist in there, where's Kaberle huh?

Oh, and the Rangers have Derek Stepan participating in the rookie skills competition, where are the Leafs rookies? Seguin? Oh, wait he's a Bruin!

I'm ok with Marc Staal to be on the all-star game. He deserves that. Kaberle too, but they need to take just 12 defensmans.

Happy for Stepan too. I always like him. For the Leafs rookie, I'm happy with Kadri who is dominating the AHL. Good for Seguin too. But I'd rather have a player with 19 goals then one with 16 points. And I can say the same thing for the Bruins. Where are the Bruins forwards? Kessel? Oh, wait, he's a Leafs!

You're nuts. Getzlaf for Grabo, Kulemin, no name prospect would be a steal of epic proportion, and one Burke would do in an instant.

I really hope this is a typo and not just senseless Kessel bashing

Komisarek = Slow, one dimensional and off ice problems in Montreal and now Toronto
Beauchemin = Overpaid and only played well with Niedermeyer in Anaheim
Gustavsson = Over hyped goalie and might never be able to play like a solid number one in the NHL ever

Aside from that, no 1st round draft pick in 2010 and 2011
I love this!

How hard would be to really fill out the 2nd line - especially since I'm guessing Kadri will likely be there somewhere in the top six? IMHO, far easier to your current situation.

He's actually doing quite well. 24 pts in 23 games for someone who just turned 20 in October.

Of course they wouldn't. That trade sucks for Pittsburgh.

Here's a list of players Burke has traded since he took the Toronto Maple Leafs job in 2008:

Jason Blake
Niklas Hagman
Matt Stajan
Jamal Mayers
Nikolai Antropov
Alexei Ponikarovsky
Dominic Moore
Lee Stempniak
Pavel Kubina
Ian White
Jiri Tlusty
Anton Stralman
Justin Pogge

..and probably a couple others I left off the list, and you think speculation of trade talks between the Leafs and others are full of hot air?

I feel and believe Crosby should be playing for the Leafs. But that means nothing... Does Dreger have any proof? No.
