Close to same cap hit and term for the principle pieces.
I might get trolled for liking this, but I actually wouldnt mind a trade like this, and the value seems to me to be pretty close

Stastny>Bozak
Phaneuf>O'Brian

As a leafs fan I would do this, it definitely hurts to lose Dion, but it finally gets us a #1 center that we have DESPERATELY needed for so long, O'Brien is a servicable D man that we can plug into the lineup, so we really dont lose too much as far as defensive depth is considered. Dropping Bozak in the trade doesnt hurt terribly as he was really a solid 3C on many teams and we were simply using him on the first line because he was the best of a bad scenario, he has chemistry with kessel, but his skill level just isnt that of a 1C, Stastny solves that problem for us as I am fairly certain he would become our undisputed #1C.
