I would add MacArthur to this list. He is a very likely trade target that makes a ton of sense on a number of levels.
The Leafs have Kessel, JVR, Grabo, Lupul, Kumy and if Kadri keeps playing like he is, Nonis will most likely try to move MacArthur for assets, given he is an UFA this Summer.
His cap hit is a little over 3m and prorated will easily fit. He just put up over 60 points a season ago and has potted twenty or more both years he has been in Toronto.
He won't get you out of your seat, but he is a more talented Kunitz. He makes a ton of crafty plays and has a non stop motor. He is a legit top six guy who would fit right in with Crosby, especially come playoff time.
He is an under the radar guy that if he became a Pen, people would love him.
I think he could be had for a second and maybe a mid tier prospect. If he doesn't work out, he can walk this Summer. If he clicks with Crosby, he can be signed for a really cap friendly hit under 3.5m.
