Toronto Maple Leafs: Roundtable Mock Trade/Draft Selection

4 of 5

Dave Chernish

I would trade into the mid-round of the second round – because the cost for a top five second round draft pick is a lot more than a mid second round pick. I would select a defenceman from the Peterborough Petes by the name of Matt Spencer.

The deal works for both teams because you are sending some other pick (3-5th rounder) and a roster player like Roman Polak or prospect like Andreas Johnson or Sam Carrick for that 2nd rounder. The Leafs could even get a late round pick or an unsigned prospect along with the 2nd round draft pick the Leafs obtain.
