Tor - Tbay - Nash

I'm well aware that quantity doesn't always equal quality ... so save that comment, but being that they're RFA's, if it came to a point at the draft where Tampa and Nashville knew with absolute certainty that they weren't going to resign, do you think they would consider the following offer on draft day?

TO TORONTO:
Steven Stamkos
Shae Weber


TO TAMPA BAY:
Mikhail Grabovski
Joe Colborne
Jake Gardiner
2011 1st - TBD (from Bos)

TO NASHVILLE:
Carl Gunnarsson
Nazem Kadri
2011 1st - 24th overall (from Phi)
2011 3rd - 85th overall (from Phi)
2012 Conditional 2nd if Gunnarsson doesn't resign


Again, this is from the perspective that both tampa and nashville KNOW that they are going to be unable to resign their players at the draft.

I know it is a lot to give up from a Leafs perspective, but worst case the Leafs get compensation from offer sheets or match whatever they sign elsewhere, so basically guaranteed to keep two elite players

Just in case this needs to be said to clear things up... I do NOT actually expect this to occur!

This is a terrible proposal, save it for the shower. How many players would the Leafs have next year?

Edit -- I just noticed that you are only moving 3 roster players. Fantasy trading can be fun..... until the backlash begins. Leafs fans take it pretty hard around here even without these proposals which feature elite all-stars coming to Toronto for alot of O.K.

I saw the teams involved via the title and thought, "Somehow Stamkos and Weber go to Toronto."

Aside from the fact that neither Tampa or Nashville does this out of insanity, the Leafs would be getting a no 1 center, whose defensively lacking, while giving up their all around no 2. Tey would be giving up our closest things to PMD prospects in exchange for Phaneuf 2.0

I think it already has.


This is the most horrific thing I've seen in a long time, and I watch a lot of SyFy original movies.

how would it be insane to take those offers vs losing them to an offer sheet / having to match an offer that they dont want to match?

Tampa/Nashville would get 4 1sts if they let Stamkos/Weber walk via an offer sheet. Your offers are significantly less valuable than that.

not sure if you know the prospects .. but theyre all first rounders... so i would not say significantly less ... and the 4 firsts would be over 4 years so the talent is more immediate in this situation

The fact of the matter is that Weber and Stamkos are franchise players, and you're proposing that the Leafs get them without actually giving up any of their own top players. EDIT - those top players being Schenn, Kessel, Phaneuf, and Kulemin.
:S ... so what youre telling me is that you should ONLY EVER post a trade involving your most elite player for an elite player? so should I say Kessel for Crosby ... does that make more sense than those 4 high assets under the circumstance that stamkos said he wont resign ????

Common sense is a poor substitute for a sense of humour. Your joke needs work.
