Top five teams for Burke to deal with


Everyone is speculating big things for the Leafs next season and while most fans realize this is Burke's most important off-season, it's still tough to predict exactly who he'll be on the phone with. I have my own personal picks, but I'd like to hear everyone else's.

Here's what I have:

Boston Bruins - I've written an entire article about this at my own website so I won't get into it too much here. Let's just say lots of centers, especially after they draft Seguin. Joe Colborne in a Leafs uni, anyone? How about Wheeler?

Philadelphia Flyers - Front-loaded and weary of the cap. A perfect combination for the Leafs to get in on.

Chicago Blackhawks - Depends on how they do in the playoffs, but I think everyone has had Sharp on their forecast for a long time.

San Jose Sharks - Stanley Cup win or not, the Sharks have players to move and if you're going to trade with any team in the league, it might as well be one of the best.

Anaheim Ducks - Obviously the Burke connection here is very apparent and will probably follow him for his entire tenure with the Leafs. Any fan of the Buds appreciates the enormous favor the Ducks did by taking Blake & Tosky.

And I'll throw in number six for the hell of it..

Washington Capitals - Playoff failure will force them into tinkering with the lineup. Only problem with the Caps is this; I don't know what kind of trade would happen with them and the Leafs. Anyone?

 

So, what's your five?
