Absolutely. Sell high. That includes everyone on offense that doesn't have upside left (until we're ready for the Cup).

Face it. MacArthur is never getting better. He'll be solid at $3M. However, what happens if he gets worse? He was humiliated last season by Atlanta and now it's another contract year--the dude is a prime candidate for a one-season wonder.

I would consider dealing MacArthur for a 1st + 2nd (if a team has proposed such an offer in the first place). You have to wonder whether or not Clarke will be producing next season the way he has been producing as a Leaf this year. I am always wary of guys in their contract years having breakout seasons.

At the same time, I wouldn't mind keeping MacArthur, especially if he ends up proving to all of us that he is a legitimate 20-25 goal, 60 point player, at a ~$3 million price tag.

It depends.. from the looks of it, If Burke can't get a deal done by Sunday, Im sure he's looking to deal him.. And if it's getting in return a First and a Second I'd do it.. allthough it would depend on the team, if the team is in a spot like bottom 15.. It's a pretty good move..

Burke said he would trade MacArthur if they couldn't agree on a new contract. He's not going to trade him just because some team gives him a decent offer.

I'm calling BS. I'd be quite impressed if we got any 1st rounder straight up.

Maybe there's a reason teams are dumping first round picks this year.

None have been traded for scrubs yet though I'd say. People aren't just giving them away. I'll retract this statement though if Mac garners us another.

I imagine it not only depends on the potential return (really high return must be tempting), but also how the contract extension talks are going. If Mac's agent is looking for the moon from Burke, he's as good as gone.

If this is true and we do trade him, I would like to see Burke trade something like Bozak, Gunnar, two 1sts, and a 3rd for Stastny, Liles, and maybe a pick

Well he's an RFA, if some team signed hin to a 2.6 miil deal, which everyone here seems to think is his bare minimum pay. We'd get a 1st and 3rd.

ooops, meant to quote the guy who said he'd take any 1st

If we draft well, it has that chance. Just because we have the most picks doesn't make us top 5 in the league. On player in the top 1-5 very likely ends up being better then any combination of players between 20-30 and thats where our 3 picks end up.

C-Mac has been a very pleasant surprise but if he wants more than 1 year and over 2.5 million on his contract I just don`t see him being in the Leafs plans.

Looking towards making the Leafs a contender they need to address there forward needs. The two biggest being a big net presence who can play on the top 2 lines winger and a top 2 line center (preferably number 1 center).

For addressing the big net presence C-Mac will probably be the odd man out because Kessel and Kulemin are far more valuable than him. Lupul is unmovable with his contract and actually has higher upside.

Even if we can`t get that big net presence by next season C-Mac may also not fit into the plans because Colborne and Kadri could be challenging him for that spot.
So there is a good chance C-Mac becomes a third line option. Except he really isn`t built to be a checker and would also be very expensive in that role.

Plus there is UFA options to replace him with that will get around 3 million like Ryder, Williams, Cole, Leino. You can make a case that C-Mac is more valuable than any of these guys but not a 1st and 2nd rounder much better if that is available in a trade.

We would be selling C-Mac at probably the highest value he will ever have and gaining draft picks which will only increase in value after the deadline which Burke can use to draft players or most likely trade with teams that will help have to dump salaries over the summer like San Jose, Philly, Boston (much like Chicago this past year).

I'd think long and hard about that one. For a free wallet thats a lot to get. But on the other hand, Macarthur has played very good. This season could be a fluke.

In my opinion, the best asset management would be to deal him for the 1st and the 2nd. Having three 1st round picks, and two 2nd round picks would put us in an excellent position to acquire the type of player we really need.

LA Kings own Leafs 3rd. round pick in 2012.

To make an offer sheet you need your 1st., 2nd., 3rd. round picks for player below 6.2 million.

So Leafs should try and get back their 3rd. in 2012.

MacArthur to Kings for a 1st. and their 3rd. in 2012.

If we think Kadri can fill his shoes on that line, I say you make the trade if you can get a first and a 2nd. Then use the 2nd for John Michael Liles. We'd be setup better in the draft and still have a decent team for the rest of the year.

If we do get picks for MacArthur, here's hoping one of them ever turns out to be as good as ....MacArthur.
Makes sense to me.
