A Plan For The Leafs

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star,

• A play for Luongo that might cost one good prospect.

• A mid-range NHL free agent.

• An aggressive bid for unsigned Anaheim blueline prospect Justin Schultz.

• No deal for Nash who may have scratched Toronto from his list of preferred destinations anyway.

• No move up from No. 5 in the draft and therefore ending up with a blue-chip youngster who will be back in junior or Europe next season.

The message? Staying the course no short-term fixes or at least none involving players who can only help for one or two years. Luongo, maybe, because he’s a long-term solution in the crease.

So… sign and trade for everyone, and replace everyone?  Good call.

I sure hope for his sake that Schultz has seen the way they ruined Luke Schenn and stays the *#$%@& away from Toronto.
