Toronto gets a player to bury that is on his last year of his contract and is 375k cheaper than Liles (1.275m in cap savings over Liles after burying Schultz). Edmonton gets an upgrade on D and a center who is NHL ready now to fill in while Edmonton has injuries, who is also a good depth C for the future. All the while helping both teams stay under the cap.
Toronto's alternative is to run a 22 man roster and lose Holzer on waivers and send down Ashton & Smith in order to keep Colborne and Liles under cap.
EDIT: Don't know who would fill in for McLaren for the first couple games if he isn't ready.
Liles is a non-starter for Edmonton. N. Schultz's contract is over this year and the Oilers will need the caproom for the Nugent-Hopkins and J. Schultz extensions, plus Petry's new contract.
