Grundstrom sucks to lose, but he projects as a middle six Hyman type of player at best. Leafs must be betting Engvall can do it better to give him up.
Durzi looks good, but was never going to make this team thanks to the leafs LHD backlog, so losing him is a wash. Good pickup for the king's though.
A first is a 1st, likely 25-31 so ultimately it's no biggie.
I'm told Muzzin is very good and as he has two years left it means we can keep through crunch and sign him after Marleau leaves.
Overall fair trade. Kings are tanking and got futures, and the leafs don't lose any critical futures as they have other guys who can do the same role at roughly the same development level.
Pretty fair trade for both sides.
