The Ducks and Leafs have traded, probably, more than any two teams over the past three years. And I think that’s a trend that can’t be ignored. He’s an asset Brian Burke drafted, loves, and will get. The price? If it’s just prospects, then it will be a lot of them. Gardiner is untouchable (ditto for Rielly) and Connolly is untradeable so get those names out of your head immediately. I don’t think Nazem Kadri interests teams otherwise he would have been traded by now. So you’re looking at Joe Colborne, Carter Ashton, Jesse Blacker, Stuart Percy, Jerry D’Amigo and Brad Ross as available prospects, and Clarke MacArthur as the only available roster player with any kind of appeal. The cost would be three of those names and a couple of high draft picks (not firsts, or perhaps one first).
