I'd be content with Reimer in net during a rebuild. I would definitely trade Bernier.

Me too.

Oh if we could get a good return for Bernier Id move him also... I think we could fetch more for him than Reimer.. Leaf fans love Reimer not sure many others in NHL do

Bernier's not going anywhere. If one of the Leaf goalie gets moved its going to be Riemer. But I have a feeling they'll both be back next season.

They have Pavelec with a .910SV% and Hutchinson with a .920SV%.  I don't think they are going to be jumping for a goaltender.  I think if anything they need either a front line scorer or a better bottom 6.

I see Columbus as a  team for a trade of either or them.

Columbus has a Vezina trophy winning goalie under contract for the foreseeable future.

And they are out of the playoff race now so there really isn't any incentive to improve on Curtis McElhniney and Anton "the other" Forsberg

Steve Simmons wrote in his Sunday article that the Leafs have interest in Winnipeg's Alexander Burmistrov (currently in the KHL). I've brought up trading for him before, a 1-for-1 deal for Winnik would probably be something that could work.

It's an intriguing idea. While Burmistrov didn't light it up while he was here with the Thrashers/Jets, he is still a young, highly skilled player. If the Leafs can get some sort of assurance he'd come back to North America, it would certainly be something worth pursuing.

A trade + contract for Burmistrov would be a pretty fair return for Winnik I think.  Maybe something along the lines of Winnik for Burmistrov with a conditional 3rd/4th rounder if Burmistrov doesn't sign.  It pushes the draft pick back a year but gives the Leafs the shot at adding a high skill player who doesn't want to be in Winnipeg.

He was a bit miffed at Winnipeg  not letting him go the KHL during the last lockout. He played for a year for the Barrie Colts, so he's familiar with the area.

Plus the KHL is a really bad scene right now with a lot of financial uncertainty.
