Been away from the Leaf's page the last couple of weeks, but i have returned. Talking to my source(who has some great connections to the Leafs) has told me that they are hearing that Cliff is still looking to move some body around. With the back log of D men the name of Carlo Colaiacovo has come up as a prospect that teams are really looking at. Word is that Cliff is looking for at least a first round draft pick in return for him. Makes sense to me considing they need to get some picks back after trading some away in the off season. Thats all I know for now.
A first round pick for colaiacovo would be amazing. I don't see a team giving up a 1st for him though. I'd like to hold on to him and move white if we can't get more than a 2nd for him.
White has been a name that has been shoped around since the summer time.....but it seems like Carlo has been deemed a better player and has more of an upside then White....It sounds like they are just looking to make some room in the back end and are looking to get some sort of return...but Cliff isn't desperate...yet
first round pick?? i like the player, but hasn't really proven ANYTHING at the nhl level due to injuries. at this point, i'd guess a 2nd rounder would be the peak return on colaiacovo.
If you can get a 1st for Carlo, you pull that trade ASAP! I don't think we can get that much since he's been injured so much, but he has looked really good this year. A 1st for him would be a steal.
