Grabovski will be missed but with Kadri developing into our future 2nd line center Grabos days in T.O with that salary seem numbered. All 3 of those leaf players have had serious success, Kulemin wont go back to 30 goals but he can be a very effective 3rd liner or even 2nd liner with great line mates. Gunner also can be a steady 4/5 d man especially when he doesn't have a hip injury.
I think we are giving up a bit too much for Weiss and a 2nd pick. Let's be serious Theodore is not gonna stay after this season.
This evaluation is based on Toronto's needs:
2nd=<Kulemin (2nd round picks very often don't make the NHL, rather keep Kulemin)
Gunnarsson>>Theodore (Gunnarsson top4 dman vs backup goalie which Toronto doesn't need)
Leafs are overpaying considering Theodore won't play for the Leafs.
