Would I add our 1st rounder in order to get into the upper tier of rentals like Kane/Horvat/ROR? I guess that depends on where we're when it comes to trade time. If our goaltenders continue to be all over the place or worse then I'm not sure I take the chance. If they're reliable or better then I could be tempted to go for it.
so Robertson for Toews? Maybe. Robertson+1st+Kerfoot/3rd for Kane? Tempting. Adding Sandin to the mix to get both is where it gets dicey. I'm not even completely opposed to moving him, but it'd have to be for a really good player that we get 2 playoff runs out of.
Does Robertson have that much value these days to get a piece like that? Not sure an oft-injured, depreciated, albeit young, asset, will hold that much value.
Robertson for Toews seems like a reasonable deal, however. Toews is nothing like what he was. And personally, I absolutely loathe him, so I don't want to see him as a Leaf. But it does seem like a deal that'd make sense for both sides.
