To Toronto:
Staal (obviously signed to an extension)
Martin
Tangradi(or draft pick)

To Pittsburgh:
Shenn
Armstrong
2012 first round pick

Toronto doesn't touch their top six forwards, they trade from a position of strength and Burke has ties to Tangradi it also addresses the size issue Toronto has. As for Martin you get a top 4 D that did not fit with Pittsburghs run and gun style of play. Martin would be a far better fit in a structured system. That being said I'm not sure what the Leafs system will be this coming year.

For Pittsburgh they get a shut down defender/crease clearing presence a reliable bottom 6 forward that there familiar with in Armstrong and a high draft pick to get help down the road (1-2 year wait).

I think this would make both teams better.
