The Leafs are going to be sellers this deadline.
They already made some deals, acquiring Kessel this summer, and Phaneuf and Giguere a month ago.
Having their first round pick would have helped, but they used it to lure over Phil Kessel this summer. Look for the leafs to trade guys like Ponikarvsky for some picks.
Thomas Kaberle. They hype around him has been immense. Will he stay? Will he go? Every time Burke gets approached by the media he always states he won't ask Kaberle to waive his no trade clause.
We will find out on the third if he is telling the truth.
In my opinion Kaberle will stay a Leaf. I'm not sure the Leafs will be blown out of the water with any offers, and there is no [i]need[/i] to move Kaberle. He's a great player, but the Leafs do have a lot of talent on the back end.
Jeff Finger could move—if anyone wants his ridiculous contract.
Other Leafs that could move include Lee Stempniak, Wayne Primeau and Garnet Exelby.
Overall, it should be an active day for GM Brian Burke.
