He's a UFA in for a payday that Toronto isn't going to be able to give him. His line was completely intimidated in the playoffs. He's not going to make the top-6 over Lupul, Kadri, Kessel, Van Riemsdyk, Clarkson and Bozak - so maybe they think they can get a decent prospect out of trading him now as opposed to a second round pick or something come deadline.

Plus, doesn't hurt to clear a bit of capspace out. They've got room, but not a lot after Kadri.
