Kasperi Kapanen, Jesper Lindgren traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for first round pick, Filip Hallander

The bit parts here are Rodrigues (undersized depth forward with ample NHL experience in Pittsburgh and Buffalo, currently an arbitration-eligible RFA who made $2 million last season), David Warsofsky (signed through 2020-21, but 30-year-old AHL depth on defense), Jesper Lindgren (a RHD who showed some potential on the Marlies this past season but is 23 years old and a project prospect), and Pontus Aberg (not signed past this season).

The main pieces in the deal are Kapanen in exchange for the first-round pick, the cap space the Leafs have availed, and a solid B+ prospect in Hallander.
