Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I heard about the first 8-10 picks are going to be great player. Tavares Kane Boychuk Eberlee i hedman moller marcstrom ellis Thats just a few [possible top 5 picks i hope leafs can pull off getting boychuk or hedman:) i think luke schenn's younger brother is also coming to the entry draft. What if Toronto will get him too. 2 Schenns:D

Heres a possible leafs trade:
2009 1st Round Draft Pick
2009 4th Round Draft Pick (from Colorado)
The leafs are obviously rebuilding and are getting a good future puck moving defensemen, a young goon who can step in and play now and score a few (just like Burke likes), and some picks.
Columbus is obviously interested in the players [http://www.thefourthperiod.com/news/tor090104.html] and is looking to finally make a playoff push. Columbus also has a backlog of talented prospects and can stand to lose the picks.
as much as i hate to say it this are the two most rumoured trades, seen on sportnet and tsn. Avery 2nd rounder for Blake.
and i dont really like this trade but ive seen this in the message boards alot and on the nhl news website. Brent Seabrook, Versteeg2nd rounder khabibulan. For Kaberel Toskala and 3rd round pick and to package it up williams and poni(even tough i dotn really think this trade will be happening there is a possiblility)
oops there are many other teams that could use torontos players
Atlanta- enstrom, 1st rounder in exchange for kaberle toskala and poni.
Islanders- Joey mac, Streit, 2nd rounderin exchange for toskala, kaberle and blake.
Sens- Smith and 1st rounder plus auld, in exchange kubina kaberle and toskala.
Stars- Avery + 1st rounder for blake and poni
Avalanche- mcleod, budaj 1st rounder for kaberle toskala poni/antropov.
Nashville- Hamsuis, Suter, 1st rounder in exchange for kubina kaberle and 2nd rounder and 3rd rounder/poni/mitchell

I can see management in toronto bombing. They are in one of the few markets that they can bomb a year or two and stock up and the fans would not all walk.
If you want to slow build your team, you start with goalies since they take the longest to develop, then d, then forwards. That means that Shenn is the right pick last year since he is 2 years from being worthy of a top pairing.
Antopov should nad at least a 2nd or 3rd rounder since he is a solid player, young, and has a decent contract. Kaberle should be worth about the same. A few other peices are movable.
i want toronto to bomb this season..trade for as many picks as possible, no short term fixes like they usually do..hopefully they end up with a top 5 pick.. maybe top 2..then take tavares or hedman .there are better players in the draft than the other schenn brother
