Well, I like the first round part of that. Obviously who the prospects are will decide a lot of it.

Depending on who the prospect are, I still think you could have gotten more if you traded the two separately. But alas, an extra 1st round pick is great to see. Now we root for Nashville to get bumped in the 1st round!

Bit of a stretch calling Jokinen a prospect but, you know, they say life really begins at 40.

Has 35 points in 47 games in the AHL this year.

I'm guessing that this tells us a little bit about the market for each guy and that we may have been overestimating what each might have fetched separately.

Corey Pronman had him ranked as Nashville's 5th best prospect at the start of the year, and he was given an HM in his top-100 prospects list. Not gonna lie, kind of an underwhelming return. But a 1st is a 1st.

Or hire the Tanya Harding team to do their thing on the Nashville players? If she does her job(s) properly, we could have another ticket in the lottery draft!  8)

Yeah. Not sure why he had to be part of the trade?

You put him in Santo's spot and you avoid having to make any real roster change.

Also, who knows? Maybe some team suffers some injuries and makes the Leafs an offer for him at the deadline.
