    With former Leaf Alex Steen performing at a superstar level so far this season, it got me thinking what a roster of currently active former Leafs might look like:

    MacArthur-Steen-Versteeg
    Boyes-Grabovski-Tlusty
    Stempniak-Stajan-Frattin
    Crabb-Colborne-Stalberg

    Beauchemin-Schenn
    Coliacovo-Stralman
    Harrison-Aulie

    Rask
    Scrivens

    Obviously no Seguin or Hamilton, since they were never Leafs, but you could consider them in there as well, in a roundabout sorta way.

    Honourable mention goes to:

    Mike Brown
    Kyle Wellwood
    John Mitchell
    Dominic Moore
    Mike Kostka
    Tim Stapleton
    Ryan Hamilton
    David Steckel
    Jay Rosehill
    Hal Gill
    Mike Komisarek
    JS Giguere
    Jonas Gustavsson
    Scott Clemmensen

    Overall, respectable at centre, especially considering Steen and Grabo's production this year. One of the best teams at centre if you include Seguin (how ironic). Some decent wingers but nothing to brag about, and a fairly average defense corps. Goaltending also looks like a position of strength.

    It would be interesting to see everything that we got back for the above guys, if someone has the time to check that out.

    Also, might be missing some guys, I just went off of hockeydb.com.

    Calling that defense average is pretty generous.

    Yeah, bit of a stretch, perhaps.

    Coli, Beauchemin and Stralman have been pretty good since leaving a Toronto though. Aulie could still have a bright future, and Schenn is still ok.

    That defense would get lit up more than my mom after they broke up.

    as would any team of "trade aways"

    Most teams don't trade away 3 top line players, or 6 top 6 players, or 2 top pairing players, etc.

    Teams who trade a lot would have a better trade away team.

    WE should trade Kessel for Giroux, then trade Giroux for Backstrom, then trade Backstrom for Vanek. Then trade Vanek again for Kessel. Then our trade away team could feature a top line of Backstrom-Giroux-Vanek and we don't actually lose anything from it :sarcasm:

    Aside from the goaltending and Steen, not bad. The defence is pretty darn bad, some good forwards in there, but not hugely terrible.

    This thread will make me cringe just as much as this roster does.

    Decent human beings I'm sure, and some good hockey players with a few it would be nice to have back, but...Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    The only quality guys i'd welcome back are Steen and Rask. Even then our goaltending has been superb so far anyways so even Rask I don't really care about. Steen would be nice but whatever.

    The rest are all average replaceable players that have been easily replaced. Our current team would destroy that team.

    I'd Take Beauchemin before I'd take Steen.

    Who's coaching?

    Rask can steal some games despite that awful D ... If it was RW coaching though, they'd be doomed

    I'd take Beauchemin and Steen right now. As nice as rask would be, he is unneeded right now.

    I'm really not kicking myself to much over that list. Actually, not at all.

    Steen is playing wing this season. A safe bet if was playing C he wouldnt have that many goals/points.

    Beauchemin in toronto doesn't work, at all. You have seen it yourself. Beauchemin in anaheim is not the same man beauchemin in toronto is. The atmosphere is totally different and doesn't suit beauchemin.

    Steen has always been a class act. Very fine player.

    lol that team sucks. Only ones I'd take back are Steen, Boyes (couple of years ago), Rask, Beauchemin, and Grabbo (but at a very reduced rate).
