Kadri while I do think might have a little bit higher of a ceiling than AA, it all comes down to known quantity vs potential quantity and why the Rangers IMO would say no to this deal. Not because of bad value, but because of where they are as a team.
It doesn't really make sense for either team. I would agree value is probably even. However a you said AA is playing as the Rangers second line center and unless they have a replacement he isn't going anywhere.
The Leafs are also highly unlikely to trade Kadri unless a first line center is coming back (I'm by no means suggesting he could get one by himself). For a team that hasn't had a first rounder last season and this upcoming draft, trading Kadri would start a fan revolt. He is the only blue-chip forward prospect our team has seen in years.
