True, but they weren't going anywhere with those players. Stajan is a UFA, Hagman will be one in a year, and Mayer was on his way out. None of these guys were a part of their future, and in return they got the corner stone of their defense for the next 5 or more years. The only piece the Leafs will miss is White.
This is definitely a move for the future for the Leafs. Burke did well. He sold high on his pieces and bought low on Phaneuf. Calgary does make out okay in the short term, but the deal favors the Leafs in the long term. Which makes sense considering where both teams are today.
