Not only that, but teams that are in a lottery position come into play as well, as they are no longer trying to secure a higher pick, but trying to add a piece to give their team a boost into becoming a contender.

Thats not true at all. Contracts come off the books, cap changes, teams lose players, need new players, trade players for the chance at young players or vice versa. Phaneuf is a very good defenseman. A team will come knocking.

Wth. Where is the proof that it delays the rebuild by a year? Sometimes 10th overall turns out to be better than 1st. Theres no proof in what you just said. We arent trying to fast track a rebuild anyway. The amount of time it takes, is the amount it takes. Simple.

Lol. Trades are trades regardless of when they happen. For example A lot of thought needs to go into acquiring a guy like Phaneuf. Hes not going to massively boost a PP, he doesnt bring that one commodity teams look for at the deadline anymore. Hes an all around, #2 shutdown guy, that is probably most effective under a proper training camp with a team. A lot of our players will be far more desirable in the offseason when contracts come off the books, the salary cap goes up, and teams get a general reading on what they need after playoffs are over. Lots of great deals happen on draft day, better ones than the deadline imo.

A winning streak can also up trade value. Good in the bad always.

Would rather sell high at the draft, than low at the deadline.

Is it not good play that got them to the nhl in the first place? Should that not be respected? But to just understand correctly here...You think because they play bad they should be subject to public humiliation? Thats like saying the kid in gym class who gets picked last should be bullied. Its just a game. A game played at a damn high level. Its pretty ridiculous really, watching nerds down talk superior athletes. Irony at its finest, which is why perhaps athletes just shouldnt listen to that crap. Mind you, opinions should be discussed, but why do the negatives always become the main targets for discussion? I guess its easy to point out mistakes than it is to understand the little things a player does well.

@.Kong. @Savo43 @TuckerForPunishment @In it to Winnik A lot of possibilities with this club. We could be fine even if we kept JVR and Kessel. I don't think the writing is on the wall for anyone outside of Bozak, and Phaneuf. We have a lot coming through the pipe, and who knows what we will accomplish at the draft even without anymore trades. A lot to look forward to i think, especially if we do make some more pro-future moves.

One player the Leafs should consider in the later rounds based on skill alone is Sergey Tolchinsky. Leads the best team in the OHL in points. He's small, and Russian, but a late round pick (he's been passed over before) that could turn out to be a gem.
