obieshabs Posted November 27, 2008 Report Share Posted November 27, 2008 With Brian Burke soon to be named GM of the Leafs, I thought of what I would try and do with a team in such turmoil, as the Leafs obviously are. So, using their current roster here is what I would try to make happen from now to the end of the regular season. Keeping in mind that the goal is not to win now but build a solid foundation of youth. To Toronto: W Andrew Ladd, D Cam Barker, G Nikolai Khabibulin, 3rd round pick To Chicago: C Nik Antropov, D Anton Stralman, G Curtis Joseph To Toronto: C Jordan Staal, 2nd Round Pick To Pittsburgh: D Tomas Kaberle, C Matt Stajan, F Jiri Tlusty To Toronto: F Wojtek Wolski, G Peter Budaj To Colorado: G Vesa Toskala, W Robbie Earl, 3rd round pick(CHI) To Toronto: W Jordin Tootoo, D Dan Hamhuis, C Colin Wilson To Nashville: W Alexei Ponikarovsky, D Pavel Kubina, D/W Ian White Waive Jason Blake (doubt any team will take that contract) Trade Khabibulin to the highest bitter at the deadline (1st round pick if you're lucky) CENTERS: Jordan Staal, Mikhail Grabovski, Colin Wilson, Dominic Moore WINGERS: Niklas Hagman, Lee Stempniak, Andrew Ladd, Wojtek Wolski, Nikolai Kulemin, Jordin Tootoo, John Mitchell, Jamal Mayers, Ryan Hollweg DEFENSEMEN: Cam Barker, Dan Hamhuis, Luke Schenn,Jonas Frogren, Mike Van Ryn, Jeff Finger, Anton Stralman GOALIES: Peter Budaj, Justin Pogge Improved? Impossible? On a personal note, I hate the Leafs, and I truly believe that they're gonna mess this up and still be rebulding by the time my 2 year old son gets drafted by the Habs!
