The overpayment for Kessel has nothing to do with fair value for Ryan.

Kadri = Future 30+ goal scorer and playmaking center with grit and two way ability

Shenn = Future #2 dominant defenseman who will dominate in the playoffs by shutting down opponents offense game after game. Possible captain material.

Ryan = great young winger with size. Proven 30 goal scorer and excellent complimentary player on any team''s top 6. Likely a 70 point winger his entire career.

So to recap ...

70 point winger < premier shutdown defensman + 70 point two way center

I agree

reality is though that it would take both of them to get him.....which is why it will NEVER happen.
