I'm usually the type to say "Trade him, trade him" but I would have to make an exception to Toskala though. I think he played outstanding this past season, and if it wasn't for him I think we would've been out of the race much earlier than we were this year.

I think rebuilding is the way to go as well. It's just that I don't think I have enough patience to wait so long.
Trade him while his stock is high Major. He's already going to be nearing his mid 30's soon, so unless the Leafs are making a run for the Cup this season or next, trade him while you can get something decent in return because I guarantee by the end of next season you'll get next to nothing for him.

Leafs have to stop thinking in the present and start working on the future if they want to stop being the laughing stock on the NHL.
