Just think... the Leafs are sitting in a position to draft either Hall or Seguin right now. I'm sorry but Kessel is not worth either of those two.
THIS is why the Leafs are one of the worst run franchises in the entire NHL.
All the tools to be great, just no leaders. Burke also has the tools to be great but his ego is too much for Toronto.
I've gotta interject here. There's no way that we know that Hall or Seguin will be as good as Kessel, or better. We could still end up with the best player out of the deal.
Of course I like yourself and many others felt better about the deal when we felt it wouldn't be a lottery pick. Next years pick SHOULDN'T be a lottery pick, but it's supposed to be a very very weak draft. Like, Patrik Stefan #1 weak.
We don't really know what side will come out on top.
