Have we traded Kessel, Kadri and Reimer for the Isles' Strome and Reinhart (and maybe something else) yet?  Get er done!

We need to tank and try to add some 1st rounders this year - even if they're midround so we can move up. Or as I mentioned pick up some early rounders from the last couple of drafts - might be less costly and move up timeline slightly.  @MLHS_Luke

Every time the Leafs lose, there should be a draw to pick one Leaf player to hand over their game's salary to a lucky Leaf fan.

After his big so-called analysis when he was hired, would Shanahan admit this team doesn't have what it takes and rebuild?  Doubt it.  Expect more spin and the odd tweak for as long as he's here ...

The problem is that essentially, the Leafs are still a very fragile team that's never far from an 18-wheeler off the cliff collapse.  Do we want better?  If so, we need to reconstruct the team.

I wonder if the Isles would deal with us.  Kessel and JT would be dynamite together, add Bernier too.  Strome + Reinhart would look good here.  We can't make simple cosmetic changes - we need to reshape the landscape.

To really clinch McDavid/Eichel, we should trade Bernie to Buffalo but not for their 1st - for some prospects.  Jake McCabe is one who would look nice.

We should stockpile picks for this year's draft.  And since shiny new toy syndrome will be at play and raise prices - you might try to grab some prospects from the last two years as well.  Bernier as UFA in the distance is scary.  How many players have walked for nothing that we could have traded for picks?  Asset management.

Gards, Dion, JVR, Phil would all fetch a bushel of assets.  Add in Lupul, can't stand him. Time to rebuild right.  Talented, hard-working, nasty mix.  No more 'the fan base wouldn't tolerate a rebuild'.  That's been happening since the 1980s.

There's a 6'4 Finn power forward named Rantanen that DET may snag in top 15.  Maybe we grab him.  Nylander-Rantanen.

We should have damn well been accumulating firsts in this draft - really good guys going top 5.  Kylingon, a Swedish D who is described as an elite skater, Paul Bittner a 6'4 power forward with good hands and Dylan Strome C who we would love.  Not sure we could acquire #1 or #2 because those teams will look to royally fleece any trade partners. But some of those other guys I mentioned would look nice.  Yeah maybe we set back our timeline but at least our team will have some substance and a chance to compete regularly. I still think we need more meanness on our top 2 lines. Not shrinking violets. @NinetyThree @Dogger

I'm not saying we'll end up there, but I do think the Leafs need a bottom 5 finish this year and next to infuse the blue chip talent needed to have a chance at moving from bubble team to something a step higher (a blue chip forward and a big nasty D).  And I think we have to make some trades to make our forwards more bad-ass.

We have a lot of one dimensional players and the problem is that most are 6/10 at it.  I think we need to finally build up the middle and need to have some nastiness.  Not gooniness but sufficient amounts of nasty and sandpaper up and down the lineup.  And then you have your skill. NY Islanders 1980s. That's one thing that helps a young team gel as they develop.  I think we need us a Foligno and a Couturier.

We have made some smart moves but I also think the ceiling of this team is bubble team- I don't see enough mental toughness, something needed in Toronto.  We have a number of players who could bring a 1st (or more).  Gotta consider all options in this draft year. Even after Connor and Jack are gone - 6'3 205 D Noah Hannifin or C Dylan Strome would look awesome on a rebuilding Leaf team.  We don't have a second this year and generally need to recoup some high round picks.
