I was torn between a 2nd or first, but Liles had a very good year a year ago coming off the 46 point campaign, until his concussion. Its true, he hasn't been as sharp since then, so a 2nd or 3rd seems more than fair for him, I think I over-valued him a little.

Add to that the fact that Liles' value isn't the best at the moment, and I see absolutely no reason to move him until another PMD is ready from our system.
Leafs defence as stands:

Phaneuf-Kostka
Gardiner-Liles
Gunnarsson-Franson/Komisarek

Phaneuf, Kostka, Gardiner, Rielly, Percy, Blacker. All players who are above average offensively, albeit some may not be ready for the jump. But as I said, these scenarios as prime only if the Leafs are out of contention. No need to have Liles in that scenario, where a team like the Wings could really use him.
