He doesn't score as much as Kessel, but I think he's an overall better player than Kessel. Plus, I think he'd add a different dynamic to the first line, and open things up more for Lucic and Krejci. It won't happen, but I'd make the trade. I like Thomas, but after next year (or maybe even this year), Tuukka could take over, and then you could lose Thomas for nothing. In this situation, you get to give Tuukka more playing time immediately, and add a 1st line winger. In 3 years, you would still have Kane and Rask, instead of Rask and cap space.
