The Leafs' PK can only go up, you know.
If all you're going to use him for is the PK, that's fine. The problem is the Devils tried to use him at even strength this last season, and every time we did it looked like we were on a PK. We'd fall into a passive box in our own zone and try to keep the puck to the outside.
If you do that enough, you're going to get burned - and they did. A lot.
I want him gone not because of our cap hit, but so that the temptation to try to use him on a shutdown line isn't there anymore.
