So after reading endless posts about the leafs, and who they could get for our captain...I thought i would just put up a list of players i would love to see in a leaf jersey once the trade deadline passes. I am not an NHL GM and find myself unqualified to be planning trades, but here are some players i believe the leafs could get their hands on with the right moves by Mr. Fletcher.
Dustin Boyd - Looks like a great young prospect capable of playing both Center and Wing.
Devin Setoguchi - The leafs have lacked speed for so long, and from what i understand this guy can really move and plays both wings, he would be a real nice addition to the leafs.
Jeff Carter - Flyer fans are going to freak, but this guy looks like the real deal. Large, Mobile center that would fill the hole once Mats is gone. The only reason i think he could be had by the leafs is because he is being buried on a very good Philadelphia team, that are looking to make a big push into the playoffs this year. The also have the depth in their farm system to give up Carter.
Michael Cammalleri - I'm shooting for the moon now, but he's from Richmond Hill. Maybe he wants to return home to revive a broken leafs team. Speed, but a pure goal scorer...something we haven't seen in Toronto for a long time. Mark my words, the Kings are going to be scary good very soon, and with the depth they have they could afford to loose a forward and add some depth and veteran presence at defense.
Fabian Brunnstrom - We can promise him lots of playing time (perhaps something that other teams can't offer) i guess there is always an outside chance...
Nikolai Kulemin - The most realistic option on the list is seeing one of our own in a leafs jersey. Why not, we have nothing else to lose...Bring the kid over from Russia and let's see what he is made of. Is he the player everyone is saying he is? Or just another over hyped maple leaf prospect.
The first overall pick in the 2008 entry draft. - Nothing like the first overall pick to really get fans and players excited for next season.
