Per Mike Johnston of Sportsnet.CA:
In return Toronto gets centre Nick Spaling, forward Kasperi Kapanen, defenceman Scott Harrington, plus first- and third-round picks from 2016. Toronto will retain $1.2 million of Kessel’s salary in each of the next seven seasons.
The Leafs are also sending forward Tyler Biggs, defenceman Tim Erixon and a 2016 second-round pick to Pittsburgh.
So, if you're a Leafs fan, do you like this deal? I think that the Penguins have committed a robbery against the Leafs.
