Some might take your inclusion of Kessel a shot at B flat

I have absolutely no idea what you're saying here.

A good possibility it was a terrible joke

I figured that Burke thought that Grabovski IS the 1st line center on the team.  Burke is paying Grabovski more than Getzlaf makes.  If Leaf fans think that Burke is paying all that money for a 2nd line center then I am shocked.

In my real life I have to add up the numbers every day, here as a armchair GM the numbers don't work with Grabovski as a 2nd line center. 

I think moving Kessel and Gardiner for J Thornton would be a step backwards with building a team. 

......I also moved Komisarek, in a package for Luongo to help ease my pain of trading Kessel and Gardiner.  :)

I understood it too but I liked it. Thought it was pretty sharp, in fact.

I would not trade Kessel for Joe...however I would look at moving Phuenef plus something for him..since we got depth at defence.

But that's just a reflection of the differences involved in the RFA/UFA markets. I don't think Burke is labouring under the impression that you can sign a #1 centre for 5.5 million if he's a UFA, especially not if the rumours of his offer to Richards are true.

The problems with that, as I see it, are:

1) San Jose has depth on D as well
2) San Jose is, in theory, only trading Thornton to save cap space
3) Phaneuf doesn't provide good value at 6.5

I was just thinking of LA Kings who have Mike Richards @ $5.75 MIL and Kopitar @ $6.8 MIL so....I guess a modern cap era team CAN have $12.5 MIL tied up in the top 2 centers.  LA seemed to experience moderate success this past season.

It is rumoured that Sharks want to sign Doan. To do so they have to shed salary. How about Joe Thorton for out first line center. Who would leafs need to trade?

You've been reading Garth on Hockeybuzz, haven't you?

So have I, that's how I know.

There is help though. It's just a matter of not going there and not clicking on that link, even though it's the dog days of summer and there's nothing happening with the Leafs, or in hockey, period.

The Sharks right now are kind of like the latter-day Quinn Leafs. Still a good team, but missing something and their window is closing rapidly.

Doan to the Sharks would be sort of like Nolan to the Leafs, except it would only cost the Sharks money. A good gamble for them, and they can probably find a way to add Doan without trading Thornton, if Doan wants to go there.

Well, if I were a wiseguy I'd point out that Pittsburgh's a pretty good club and not only are they willing to tie up 17.4 million in their top two centres but they also seemed pretty willing to give their #3 guy 6 million a year on top of that.
