Its actually a pretty decent deal. However the issues I see with it are twofold:

1) I don't think Bobrovsky would put up any better numbers than Reimer did with our defense. He is decent, but if the Leafs are going for a goalie upgrade I don't think he is the man we should be going for
2) Leafs biggest need is high-end talent. The 5th overall is really our only hope to get that. JVR could become that, but he was drafted 5 years ago and looks like he'll probably end up as a poor-mans 1st liner or a 2nd line winger. Again, the 5th is also a risk because its a complete unknown, but I think if its moved a player that can fill a top-end talent need rather than JVR and some decent picks.

Nice value though
