Would You Trade A First Round Pick For Leo Komarov?

from Damien Cox of Sportsnet,

Here in mid-January, it’s clear three clubs — Toronto, Buffalo and Columbus — will be sellers at the trade deadline, and pretty evident Edmonton will be, too.

Of those clubs, Leaf winger Leo Komarov and his 16 goals may be the most appealing asset available. Komarov, 28, has two more years at an affordable $2.95 million cap hit, and has shown this season he can play in the top six on the Leafs, and definitely in the top nine of a better club.

The Leafs would be looking for a first rounder, which might be a stretch. But with so few teams falling back of the pack, there may not be many better players out there at the deadline.

Because any time you can trade a 1st rounder for a guy who’s already scored more goals than any other season at any level of his career and is already 28 years old, you have to do that?

That’s going to…. end poorly for someone.
