Isles easily win this trade, because that's more than one might expect to get back on a deal you purely make to shed cap.
How many times have we seen teams give up a 1st at the TDL for a player to round out the roster? I could easily see a contender in need of a 2nd pairing puck moving defenseman trade for a 50% retained Leddy at the TDL giving up a 1st rounder or more in the process. Sure, that trade hasn't happened yet, but I can't think of why else Detroit makes this trade. By the end of the year, I think both teams will have gained from this trade: the Isles get desperately needed cap space, avoid losing a defenseman for nothing to Seattle AND a 2nd to boot and Detroit likely uses Panik to bump the 2nd up to a 1st and a bit more.
