taking a part the deal

To Nashville: MacArthur, Connolly, 3rd round pick--Both Macarther and Connolly are UFA after this year. So Nashville is giving up a first and one of their top prospects for a third rounder

To Toronto: 1st round pick, Brandon Lepisic
Nashville doesn't like spending upto the cap, so it doesn't really matter if they're going UFA.

Given the quality of players that they are, regardless of their cap hits, it's not exactly a good thing that they're going UFA at the end of the year.

I could see something near the deadline around MacArthur but I doubt

A) Toronto wants to dump all these roster players when their goal is to make the playoffs (Assuming a season happens.)

B) I doubt Nashville wants the added salary at this moment in time.

I get that this is hfboards... but does nobody else realize that the Leafs actually have to start winning hockey games at some point?
Burke was offered a first for Mac at the trade deadline last year, from a team that was trying to make a push for the playoffs... He rejected it... Soo this deal is pretty much toronto trying to dump Connolly's 4.5m of cap hit... Which they don't need to do, since they have about 6m in cap if it didn't change from last year... This is the last season on his contract, and we don't even know if this season is going to start any time soon...
