Phil_314 Posted April 14, 2015 Share Posted April 14, 2015 I think there could be a fit here. Though both are "rebuilding" teams, they're in different parts of the process. It seems like Edmonton has defined their core (Hall, Ebbs, R.N.H., Yak, Schultz...) but they're not ready to compete without a top-level, minute-munching defender and starting goalie. Though among their left D-men they have Ference, Marincin and Klefbom, among others, none of them are the tough-minutes guy that Dion Phaneuf is. Paired with Fayne they could have a strong pairing, allowing Jultz and the other kids to grow in lesser roles. Toronto's still tearing down their roster, with untouchables of J.v.R., Rielly, Bernier and Nylander. If Edmonton gave up Nikitin, either Marincin or Klefbom and a pick I think there could be something for the Leafs to build around, which would lessen the blow of losing their workhorse. Thoughts?
