every one who has responded with the fact that kessel is not worth just a first is missing the fact that its part of his assumptions for this scenario.

Kessel is worth a first IF BOSTON CAN'T RESIGN HIM. Your trading a player who will be asking for a lot of cash, and boston also has to resign Thomas, and a back goaltender (Manny's salary can make up the diff for thomas i would think, but the backup will cost you another 1M unless you bring rask up). Then you also need to resign krejci as well. You are loosing 2 larger contracts in Manny and Axelsson (and several smaller ones), but have to resign 3 key players and the fill ins for the other players whose contracts are ending.

Kessel is worth more than a first if boston can resign him, but if boston gets closed to the cap, this deal would be a fair last minute trade for boston.
