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.

Leafs decline.
why wouldn't Theodore play for the leafs?? And 2nd round picks in a deep draft from a ****** team is pretty valuable, should give us a high rank prospect. Gunnarsson is playing horrible for us right now and we have lots of guys like him now. It takes off Grabos contract which could taint us in the future, and it gives us a chance to try Weiss between Kessel and Lupul which could turn out great while giving Bozak a chance on the 3rd line, which also could turn out great.

For this season, it doesnt really hurt us, and for the future it helps us a lot. For the season it gives us more security in the net, along with a top end talented centre to boost Kessels scoring. I think Bozak will do a better job on the 3rd line then Grabo did, winning faceoffs and working hard. Kulemin really is just horrible, he does all the little things wrong, horrible passes bad positioning, doesnt work hard, but he is a good defensive player with size and a good shot. Grabos salary is way too high if we ever want to add some big name talent to this team guys like Grabo who are mediocre making 5.5 mil need to go. Gunner really isn't needed here anymore and we get a 2nd round pick in a deep draft. Takes a big salary off the books while not hurting us this season with Weiss and Theodore immediately helping us, also if Weiss works out we will surely resign him as the # 1 center. We dont lose anything, all we do is make an extra winger spot available on our team with the loss of Kulemin and Bozak slides to the 3rd line. We get help in net and a 2nd round pick... Also it gives us WAY more options heading into July 1st and the draft.
