Why do the Leafs do this?

From a Leafs standpoint:
Already have 2 2nd line left wingers in Lupul and Kulemin.
Already have 2 quality right wingers in MacArthur and Kessel
Have quality 2nd line center in Grabovski

What's the incentive for Penner? Lupul has played well and wants to be with Toronto specifically because of increased ice time and has been earning it. Kadri has been playing on the Left Wing as well and Colborne is a center prospect. We have an overload of good wingers and Penner doesn't really help our situation. Why risk good D prospects (assuming that's what Edmonton wants) when we can just wait for July 1st and target Laich or other free agents.
