Team Explanation
Toronto is in better shape than most people think, I believe the main piece that is keeping them from competing is a bottom four RHD. There is this idea that Toronto needs a number one, but I believe they can make due with what they have and develop.

    I am not sure exactly what Philly would need back to make this work, a middle range prospect? Pick? Whatever else to balance.

    First off, Sanheim is LHD, the only logical option from Philly is Myers and it would take more than Kappy to get either of those.

    I just don't see where Kapanen fits in Philly any better than he fits in Toronto? Looking at their roster, he ends up as a 4th liner (behind Konecny, Voracek, Simmonds). Even if he played the left side, he'd still be behind Giroux, JVR, and possibly one of Laughton or Lindblom.

    He'd be above Konecny because they want him at C, he'd be above lindbolm and Laughton, he'd push JvR for that spot... but your right he's not a good fit for philly

    He is listed as a RD on Philly's roster, I shouldn't have assumed. And as for Kappi's fit on that team, with an aging forward group I think he would be a great addition. Simmons is on an expiring contract and with JVR coming on could have priced himself out.

    Who else should Toronto look for that is similar to Sanheim?
