Are Luke Schenn and Tomas Kaberle Tampa Bay Bound?

I haven’t posted one of these in a while, this one made me laugh…

“Leafs trade their #1, Schenn, and Kaberle to Tampa for the second pick.

Then the leafs trade a package (no names yet ) and the #2 pick to the isles.

Leaf fans…would you do it?

I would for sure.”

Only one problem with this rumour. We are 10 weeks from the draft. You can’t make this deal unless you have a guarantee that the Isles will make the deal to go from 1 to 2, or agree not to take JT at 1. Here is the bigger problem. If you trade Schenn, Kaberle and #7 to get to 2. What the hell do you have to trade to get from 2 to 1 or to get the Isles not to take JT? In other words, you can’t overpay for the 1st trade if you have to make another one! I am not suggesting that the rumour isn’t out there, rather that it makes little to no sense right now (if at all).
