There probably were only two options when it came to Liles. Either trade him or keep him until he is 35.

Avs chose the former and Leafs the latter. In hindsight Avs probably made the best decision and Leafs are trying to figure out what to do with him at the moment.

He was a good guy for Avs and I still have a soft spot for him, but I'm not sure you can tie up $4M/year in a guy like that when he's basically a #3-4 guy that might turn into a #5-6 guy sooner than you'd want.
