I like Kessel alot and as an organizational need, he represents exactly what this team can use.
That said, I'm not moving Staal for him. We have some solid defensive prospects, no question, but we would then have a serious need for a legit #1/#2 type defenceman that Staal is right now.
I'm not into creating one hole to address another.
As for value, I think that this point MAYBE we would have to add a little something to the mix, but I also think that we have not yet seen the best from Staal (nor have we from Kessel). It's just been my opinion that top defenceman are harder to come by than 1st line wingers.
I'd like to add Kessel, but Staal isn't the guy I'd want to part with.
Girardi and Sanguinetti for Kessel
if not, no harm no foul
