The Vermette deal aside as you're right, he's still signed next year, I gotta think the Lightning landing Lashoff/Karsums is better than the second rounder the Leafs got, despite the Lightning giving up a second (likely 31-34). Plus, I'm betting Antropov does more for the Rangers than Recchi does for the Bruins (probably means you'll get that conditional pick).
