Leafs Want to Swing a Deal

From Fox News:

The word is out. Toronto Maple Leafs General Manager Brian Burke is looking to swing a deal.

Burke informed the media at the NHL Scouting Combine on Saturday that he would be willing to trade one of his two first-round picks and a second-round selection (No. 39 overall) to move up in what he feels is as deep a draft as there’s been in some time.

“We’re trying to move up, but haven’t had any luck yet ... it’s still pretty early,” Burke said. “We own the 25th pick (from Philadelphia) and either a 29 or 30 from Boston (depending on the result of Stanley Cup Final), and we’re trying to package 39 and one of those first-rounders.”
