It's good value for the Leafs. Though don't forget the Canucks shed over $4mil in cap space - while setting themselves up to shed much more by moving Ballard.

This is a deal that looks good going forward if the cap drops to $60mil...
I don't like getting ripped off in trades for the sake of cap space.
