From the Leafs perspective Kosistsyn and Weber for Kaberle actually isn't that bad of a deal in terms of value if you compare it the Campbell deal.
But getting Kostitsyn doesn't address any need for us because we already have Kessel and Kulemin without a doubt ahead of him in the pecking order. Lupul isn't going anywhere cause of his contract. Armstrong is a lock for the third line cause of his playing style.
So Kostitsyn is left fighting with Versteeg, C-Mac and possibly Kadri. 3 possibly 4 guys fighting for 2 spots. Plus Toronto has Caputi, McKegg and Ross all potentially capable of taking one of there spots a few years down the road.
If Toronto were to do that deal they would need to have another trade lined up to ship out 1 or 2 of those 3-4 guys to address there center needs. The position next to goaltending that has killed them all season long.
