I had an idea a couple days ago and we apparently don't have a trade idea thread so I'm gonna put it here cause I can't find the other one. I think that at any moment, Brian Burke could pull the trigger on a deal based around Joffrey Lupul and Paul Stastny and I think both teams and all of us would be happy about it. Something like...
prospect (D'Amigo, Leivo, or someone like that)
2nd round pick
Both teams win. Colorado gets a legit 1st line winger to play with one of Duchene or O'Reilly who are both real good young centermen while relieving some of their depth among top 6 centermen. Leafs get a legit top 6 center, of which they only have one of, and elevate some of their wing depth. Plus the Leafs get rid of 2 big contracts in Komisarek and Lombardi while Colorado gets over the cap floor but at the same time Komisarek's contract is front loaded (3.5 million salary next 2 years, 4.5 cap hit) and Lombardi is an expiring contract. Then to make up the difference (in my eyes at least) between Stastny on the down side and Lupul on the up side, you throw in the 2nd, and a high risk, high reward prospect in Joey Hishon who may never play again but may become another top 6 center if he does play again.
Colorado would quickly throw Lupul probably with Duchene and Parenteau, Jones, or maybe McGinn and then keep O'Reilly with Downie and Landeskog where they played so well at the end of last season. We would then look something like this...
van Riemsdyk - Stastny - Kessel
Kadri - Grabovski - MacArthur
Kulemin - Bozak - Connolly
Brown - Steckel - McClement
That team has playoffs written all over it IMO.
