I'm not keen on the Flyers trading for him, but overall, we could do a whole lot worse if h were available cheap (which I know he is not).
Considering everything you just described and his 6.5 million dollar cap hit, I think trading for him would be a major mistake. That has nothing to do with him being a Leaf, and everything to do with him.

I'd rather seek a better solution. We need a true number one, not another not-quite #1.
