Three pages and no "Ribeiro to Toronto" mentions? You disappoint, HF! Clearly Iginla is on his way over!

It's obvious that it's Spezza.

He's made other trades besides the Kessel trade. You should look into them.

Here's a word that describes all of those scenarios:

Hope that clarifies things a little more for ya.
So Benn is in Crosby and Ovechkin's class?

Last year Neal wouldn't be traded, and Chris Stewart wouldn't be traded... Until they were... Trades are part of the business... I'm not suggesting Benn will be traded, but it's far from impossible.

No Mr. Moderator derailing a thread, he traded 3 seeds for a pretty flower... Until 1 or 2 of those seeds blossom and become a prettier flower.... He'll be happy with his pretty flower thats still growing and getting prettier on it way to maturity...

Either way, he's up a few bucks when looking at the big picture, wouldn't ya say?

That's actually a very good analogy for the Kessel deal. Nicely put.

I wouldn't count my chickens before they hatch, there's still quite a bit of unearthing to do with that deal (not that I think it will turn out to be a win for the Leafs).

Other than that deal, how many trades has Burke made with the Leafs that haven't turned out good for them?

I'm going to guess that when there is a deal made because eventually there will be Burke likes to make atleast 1 significant deal year it will involve, Morrow, Maolone, Hemsky or a center like Ribiero

Yes, I clearly was saying Benn is in the same class as those two.

And I'm not saying that Benn being traded is impossible, I'm saying that Benn being traded to Toronto is impossible.

Again, the Rangers have a ton of young, talented young defenseman. The Leafs don't. The Rangers would add a low cost vet if it was a defenseman.

Personally, I don't think the Leafs have enough defenseman. I watched them the other night. Their defenseman are awful. The forwards and defenseman have no clue how to kill penalties. The Leafs just flat out stink.

They have terrible role players and they don't draft 2 way forwards.
The only thing I can see is the Rangers putting together a package of Avery, Bourque, Kundratek and Hagelin for Kadri.

It's 50/50 that Kadri turns out to be a good NHL, scoring forward. Worth the risk from the Rangers. Leafs can eat one year of Avery. In Bourque and Hagelin the Leafs will have their top PK pairing for a decade. Those guys also have some offensive game. Kundratek should be a nice, stay at home defenseman in the long run. He just can't make the Rangers young defense because it's too talented.

It's not that easy to find top PK forwards that have the offensive ability to play on the 3rd line. The Leafs don't have anybody like that. I think they should concentrate on fixing that problem. They will be drafting in the top 7 so they can draft another scoring forward.

And birds go tweet. This is a pretty weak effort here by a respectable source, even if he has connections to the Leafs brass which he does. Fact is all GM's are always looking to add otherwise, they wouldn't be doing their jobs.

I guess Schenn, Franson, Aulie, Gardiner and Gunnarsson are all scrubs. Not to mention our younger guys who will continue with the Marlies or junior. Christ even Phaneuf is only 26.

Richardsequalscup... good luck with that.

Is Kessel still "growing and getting prettier?" His production has not improved since the trade. This trade in a year or 2 is going to be absolutely hilarious. Seguin will be better than Kessel and Hamilton and Knight will just be gravy.

lol if you think you have impact prospects to get a player like Jamie Benn then power to you.

Sorry but bringing the thread to reality isn't taking a pot shot at the Leafs. They'll be lucky to get a player like Malone.
