    Might as well pick up Bonino, there are no #1s available and can't move Plekanec anyway. Next year will be the year to go after a # 1 when Plekanec is off the books.

    I wonder if Grigorenko could work?

    I am all for Dollar-store shopping for Grigorenko, Nail Yakupov, Sam Gagner, Ryan Whitney (out of retirement), and Sekac.

    You act like Bonino and Hanzel are not bargain bin.

    No need for pointless high risk cases. These aren't draft picks, pro scouts more or less know these guys.

    I'd much prefer a more defensively solid C (like Bonino) who won't crash and burn and could be moved if they need to free up a roster spot and cap space. Don't need another Semin on roster.

    That said, we're stuck with 14, which complicates matters.

    Because I want them to keep Galchenyuk.... I wonder if Gallagher could fetch a centre. There are more options on D through FA.

    Perhaps a Gallagher/RNH swap. Then chase Del Zotto in FA.

    There has to be a trade available for a legit #2 center.

    Leafs need to sign a RHD. I don't think Kulikov or Markov makes sense for them.

    Shattenkirk goes to the Rangers.

    I see the Leafs interested in Wideman, Stone and Franson. But all will be short term stop gap deals for them.

    Galchenyuk could get pretty sheltered minutes with all Ozone starts if Bonino and Danault are your 2/3.

    Need to get rid of Pleky.

    The problem is that Bonino will get closer to 6 mil/season rather than 4 mil/season....I would see a team paying him 5.5 for 5 years just based on the fact that the UfA market is weak

    That kind of dough and term for a guy who gets 15-18 goals and 40 points wont be easy to trade down the road

    Yah, except Grigorenko et al have much higher chances of being a buy outs and KHLers.
