    If there is no salary retained by the Leafs, that'll be $39.2 mil Pitt has invested in only 5 players. Letang, Fleury, Kessel, Malkin, Crosby.

    That only makes it worse for Toronto.

    They're all really good though.

    Kapanen is the Pens' top forward prospect. Harrington probably in the top-3 defensive prospects. Not an awful return when you're trying to rebuild your team, factoring in the 1st rounder and possibly a roster player.

    15% works out to the Pens paying around 6.75 mil per season against the cap.

    There still seems to be other moving pieces. So much dust right now haha

    He's from a suburb of Toronto. That's gotta be at least a little exciting for him.

    Nathan Horton becomes the highest paid Toronto forward following this trade.

    @Real_ESPNLeBrun: Leafs also sending a second-round pick in 2016 to PItsburgh as part of Kessel deal. The picks they're getting from Pitt are 1st and 3rd

    @TSNBobMcKenzie: Kessel, Tyler Biggs, Tim Erixon and 2nd in 2016 for Kapanen, Harrington, Spaling, 1st and 3rd picks in 2016. TOR retains $1.25M/year.

    Good luck fitting that all in a title.

    On second look, how the hell did Toronto give up so much? I guess for contracts, but they actually liked Erixon. Kid can't catch on with any team that acquires him.

    Same as the James Neal robbery of a deal. Unbelievable. How do they even fit this in? All these big contracts.

    They have about $8.25m for four forwards, one defenseman, a backup goalie and spares. Lots of ELCs.

    Well if Erixon is involved, then it's a real robbery.

    I mean the pens already had nobody in their depth chart so giving up nobody for phil kessel seems like a good deal for them. It's not like these are grade A prospects they're spilling here, otherwise they would have been playing with the team already since their bottom 6 is a mess.
