I really like this trade. Since Pickard cleared waivers today, Leafs can send him directly to the Marlies. Once Mac has a bad game, I'm sure Pickard will be his replacement and Andersens future backup.
Also, Leafs were near the max contract limit. Doing a 1 for 1 keeps leafs at 48 contracts and some breathing room to add others.
