Dreger and Button just said on "Leafs Lunch" that they don't think Drouin will be moved by the deadline.

Sounds like Ladd will be moved by next Monday, and that could be the first domino to fall in a long line of trades.

I can't believe I didn't create a trade deadline BONANZA thread. Facepalm

That should have been automatic with the Phaneuf trade... Facepalm

No need to be sorry. It's my bad. Hopefully it results in multiple trades for our beloved Senatores.

Darren Dreger seems to think Ottawa won't do much. So get ready for lots of trades for the Sens.

There's some speculation Chicago offered a 1st + prospect Nick Schmaltz for Ladd and Winnipeg is waiting to see if any offer trumps that.

I don't see many trades coming. A lot of what they want to do - ie. get a top 6 player, preferable C will/could happen in the summer.

A guess:

Smith for a 2nd
Wiercioch for a 4th
Chiasson for a 4th

and that's that.

Chicago seems to find a way to land that big rental year after year. Last season being Vermette, of course.

Frankly, I hope they keep Smith. The way he's been playing with JGP gives me a lot of hope. Those two could be a great duo on the 3rd line of a good team.

You kind of have a more talented version of Smith in Dzingel going forward. I think they can plug him into that spot and flourish going forward, then sell high on Smith and use that pick to either make a trade, move up, or select another young buck.

But, Smith has been excellent this year.

Yes smith has been good this year. Almost to the point of being an anomaly. Personally I think this is the best time to capitalize on his value and if we don't this will go as another missed opportunity. We have guys that could benefit from having a shot at his postion. I'd like to see some internal competition for the rest of the year. See what we have. Raise the value of some of those prospects leading to the draft. See if we can include some of them in a drouin trade. Or another trade.
Stop looking backwards for answers and look forwards.

Definitely the way I'd look at it.

The real anomaly was last year when he clearly wasn't right, Smith has had 13 and 14 goal seasons before. And a good way to look forward and move forward is to keep useful players around instead of attempting trial and error with unproven prospects.

Besides, with Chiasson likely gone you will have one more spot to fill with one of our can't-miss prospects.

Yeah, I'd agree with SSF. Unless a really good offer came in for Smith (more than a 2nd), I wouldn't deal him. He's only 27, and seems to be a great fit on the wing. He can take faceoffs when necessary, he can go on the PK or PP...a pretty versatile player. I'd rather have him in our lineup right now over ZBad, which is kind of crazy to say.

If Smith has finally found his place (don't forget, he's tried the wing before and it was a disaster) then, yes, he would definitely be better than Prince or Puempel. If all things were equal. But they aren't. He's set to make $2.35M next season and will ask for $3M+ if he gets anywhere near 20 (he's on pace for 19). Everyone seems to think that Smith is the type of player who would show his worth in the playoffs. Well, in 23 post-season games he has 1 goal and 2 assists. He's been around long enough that it's hard to expect him to suddenly change. Do we need a $3M+ fourth line center or 3rd line winger who no-longer throws his body around with reckless abandon like he used to and who, frankly, disappears in the playoffs?

I still say sell high.
