I'm expecting an overpayment but

Turning Kaberle into Liles + Colborne + 2nd looks good to me

The speculation might be but the possibility of Burke having the deal in place (or done) is not.

That's insane, call me a homer but I wouldn't move Aulie alone for Liles(cheap contracts are valuable). The Leafs can't afford to move any more roster D-men anyways after moving Beauch and Kabs.

Avs could use forward and goalie prospects. Don't really need more picks. May have to take near equal salary back.

Liles would be a roster d-man for you guys if you traded for him. So you wouldn't lose one. Unless you don't have the cap space available for him.

Wouldn't Liles value be comparable to Kaberle? Not sure why you think the market would have changed signficantly over the last week when a guy like Liles would be in high demand at the trade deadline.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't the Avs have to take salary back to meet the floor?

This one shouldn't be pick dominated, I think players will be coming back. Kadri? To replace Stastny, who will DEFINITELY be traded?

Possibly, problem is Leafs like Aulie, he's young, big, hits a ton, great defensively and has huge upside. plus, he is solidly in our top 6 so trading him for liles is a lateral move. And having to throw in a 1st is a joke.

He is a roster D-man coming back, but the whole point of getting him would be to ADD another one, not have one leaving and one come back. Brett Lebda needs to be pushed off of this roster.

Sorry but LOL to you. If you don't think that THAT is the value, then you are kidding yourself and the Avs can just shop him to another team.

By seeing the god-awful garbage Stastny proposals I've seen on here, it's no surprise that you guys have overvalued your prospects. Oh and your pseudo 1st rounders that are certain to be ALMOST 2nd rounders have TONS of appeal. Gimme a break.

You may not agree with what the Avs would be asking for but they are certainly not giving you Liles for a garbage prospect and a frikkin' 3rd round pick as much as I realize you want to believe that's going to happen.

it would be a short conversation.

1. the leafs are looking to add another roster defenseman not exchange one.

2. leafs are pretty high on aulie. he is a rookie defenseman who is already playing top 4 minutes. he is good, he is cheap, he is relatively reliable in his own end. i wouldnt say he is untouchable but in a deal for liles he would not be available.

considering kaberle got a late 1st, a top prospect, and a conditional second i can see the argument that liles should be worth close to what kaberle got but considering where the leafs are in comparison to boston toronto is not in a position to give up similar.

based on burkes personality i also cant see him overpaying for liles. im curious to see how this unfolds...

Why not? I would think its close. They have put up about the same amount of points this year with basically the same contract (except Liles isn't an upcoming UFA). Liles is also two years younger. Obviously Kaberle is more proven and known as a premier PMD, but I think they would have to have a similar value.
