He's a nice player, and the deal worked out well for the Leafs, for the reasons you state. I just don't consider it robbery. You had the cap space and money to overpay a good player and took him off the hands of a team that wasn't interested in overpaying him.

The big tragedy here is that Calgary took the cap space and did exactly nothing productive with it.
