Leafs take a chance on a Dman regaining form that only has two years left on his deal. If he doesn't we just buy out Ballard or ship him elsewhere next off-season. The UFA D market isn't very good and 2 years is a shorter term that what Fernece, Scuderi, etc. will be looking for.

Nucks get a player that will cost less to buy out saving their owner a few million in the process.
I think the Leafs would be the last team to trade players for other teams to buy out. Leafs easily eat the money to erase Komisarek's cap hit with their compliance buy out.
