I always shake my head every year as the Leafs head into the draft having either given away their picks or having traded away any youth they had. A little patience and they would be adding Tyler Seguin today to their team… and it’s not just the player… but the cap space versus having Kessel and his salary.
How long before Burke trades away the rest of his 2011 picks?
How about taking a lesson from Dale Tallon while he was in Chicago and keep some first and second round picks to build a team?
