Oh no?

I guess Boston never traded Kessel to the Leafs, I don't think Grabovski ever played for us, either?

It's a myth, nothing else.. Trading superstars (ala Heatley) to a divisional rival may not make sense, but for a complimentary player like Poni who is on a team who probably won't make the playoffs its an easy way for Burke to re-stock some much needed draft picks.
