Dallas Stars’s Trade Proposal:

Why it will work:

Lindy Ruff and Jim Nill are fed up with Kari Lehtonen. The team has the offensive guns to run with any team in the league. The defence is slowly coming along, but Lehtonen has been a sieve in net all season; the team needs confidence in their goalie to take that next step as a team.

Leafs get Campbell who was once considered the next “great” NHL goaltender but after a few rough development years in the AHL, some of the shine has worn off. They also get a really chippy, power forward, goal scoring winger in Brett Ritchie and then the (currently) 11th overall pick to potentially add another blue chip prospect to the system.

Why it won’t work:

The only reason this deal doesn’t work is if the team decides to buckle down with Kari Lehtonen. Otherwise this is a slam dunk for both teams.
