Kessel is a young rising star.
I can understand why Toronto did that.
The trade breaks down like this
Kessel = Toronto's 1st in 2010
So really the value is a 2011 pick and a a 2nd in 2010. That isn't alot to give up for a 21 yr old coming off of a 36 goal season.
You have to look at it from Maple Leafs perspective. When was the last time you recall the Leafs having a player this gifted at such a young age? Maybe Sundin after trade with Quebec.
