The 2007 NHL Entry Draft started with the Sharks organization trading to get two first-round picks in order to select their targeted players, while moving players who had become disposable to them. The morning of the draft, the Sharks quickly dealt backup goaltender Vesa Toskala and forward Mark Bell to the Maple Leafs for the 13th and 44th picks in the 2007 draft, as well as their fourth-round pick in 2009. Toskala and Bell had become expendable due to the development of a few of their prospects over the last season.
