I'd be really curious to know what kind of offer was good enough here from Tampa that St. Louis would have accepted an offer for. Especially in a deal that would have included a contract extension for Shattenkirk. Tampa's prospect pool isn't really anything special. Drouin was mentioned in Shattenkirk deals last season but with his play this season there's almost no way he was on the table anymore. I doubt Vasilevskiy would have been offered too.

Yeah, I wondered about that too(Also how it would work capwise).

My guess is it would have been built around one of Johnson or Palat.

Tyler Johnson is the name I heard this morning, possibly McKenzie speculating?

SportsNet's Chris Johnston agrees: time to get a depth center.

Quote
It wasn’t a sequence that warranted individual blame quite so much as it reinforced an idea that’s been running through the top levels of the organization for some time now: They could still use more help down the middle.

Babcock certainly made no secret of his feelings on the matter – “I think we have good depth in lots of spots, not as much at centre ice” – and now we wait to see if general manager Lou Lamoriello can line up a deal that makes sense ahead of Wednesday’s 3 p.m. ET trade deadline.

The thinking here is easy to understand.

As much as the Leafs still feel it necessary to closely guard their draft picks and prospects, they also believe it’s vital to give the youngest roster in the NHL an opportunity to grow through the experience of playing big games down the stretch.

Whatever a deadline rental center costs is surely less than what they'll recoup trading Bozak, JvR, and Komarov over the next year.

According to PPP, Brendan Smith (UFA $2..75M cap hit), and Riley Sheahan (1 yr. rem.@ 2.07M), are possible players the Leafs may be interested in from the Red Wings.  (This was also discussed on HNIC Saturday night.).

Sheahan's a centre and Smith a defenceman. If the Leafs were considering a Hunwick or Polak unloading then Smith could be a decent fill-in.  Sheahan would take the place of Ben Smith or Gauthier and add much-needed depth at that position.

Last night on HNIC Kypreos said it could cost the Leafs as much as a first round pick for Sheehan...that's crazy!

Leafs move Soshnikov to the Marlies, but remember that AHL playoff roster considerations mean some moves must be made today.
