Phil Kessel - Brian Burke loves Kessel, and I think he's alright. A trade offer involving Kessel is highly unlikely, but if the right deal came along that filled an organizational need (a big, No.1 centreman, for instance), Burke would be foolish to completely ignore it.
Joffrey Lupul - Like Kessel, Lupul isn't going anywhere unless an organizational need can be filled. He is one of the most valuable Leafs right now, but what if, say, Joe Thornton or Patrick Marleau were available?
Mike Brown - This guy is the perfect fourth liner. Why would you even think of trading him? At the same time, great fourth liners are a little easier to replace than great first liners.
Dion Phaneuf - Phaneuf has the trust and respect of his team and his boss, so there's no reason to trade him. Then again, the Leafs have some depth at D, so if there's a legitimate starting goalie or No.1 centreman out there to be had, it might not hurt as much as you think to offer up Phaneuf.
James Reimer - This is a tough one. Is he for real or not? We don't know yet, which is why he makes the HM list.
Greg McKegg - McKegg looks like a great prospect who could turn out to be 20-goal scorer in the NHL someday. He isn't an elite prospect and it's hard to label your "B" prospects untouchable, but he needs to be given a chance to be evaluated in Toronto before he's flipped for someone (or something) else.
Nazem Kadri - 2012-13 is Kadri's time to shine and to silence all his critics. If he has a successful year, he'll graduate from the HM list.
