Bad deal for Toronto.

Lecavier hasn't played well in the regular season for several seasons now and his salary is massive. At the same time he's more like a sniper than a playmaker, so I don't see him and Kessel really hitting it off. I'm sure that they'll still produce, but it really doesn't sound like a match made in heaven to me.

Meanwhile Tampa gets a decent #2 center in Grabovski with a significantly smaller cap hit. Younger more motivated legs and more cap space.

I think Tampa should take this deal, but I totally understand if they want to hold onto Lecavier. He's been with them through the thick and the thin. Still, it's a good hockey move for them.
