No matter how much money a Team has it isn't going to be happy to pay out Millions to be rid of a guy. Also, from a development standpoint he will take up a spot of a young goalie to develop.

The Leafs should be rewarded for this burden.
Your reward is a strong probability of playoffs for at least five consecutive years, perhaps longer. What you are ask is we compensate you when the trade no longer benefits. By that logic if Kadri does not pan out in five years, Toronto should fork over their first. Obviously, this is not how trades work. There is inherent risk, which both sides must accept.
