If Toronto wants to get him before anyone since he has a good shot of ending up there if he hits free agency, I think it might cost...

To Anaheim: Mike Komisarek + 1st (Conditional, if he re-signs its 1st, if he doesn't, it's a 3rd) + Colborne.
To Toronto: Corey Perry
This isn't a great deal for them lol.

But I agree with you on the goal being to add Perry to Kessel, not swap them for each other.

Plus I can't see any reason Anaheim does it for Phil. As much as the value in a vacuum might be somewhat close, Anaheim is just postponing the issue they are facing with Perry right now a year. Do they want to risk going after a player that might not stay after moving to a new team?

He seems pretty happy right now in Toronto. As much as Burke was crucial in bringing him to Toronto, does Anaheim want to risk him being unhappy going somewhere he didn't choose and just leaving after his contract is up? I doubt it.
