And since it seems like a lot of Vancouver fans say he is the best #2 center in the game, that would seem to imply he is only traded if they get a #1 center in return for him. Should be no problem since the leafs have so many players to choose from in their quest for a #1.

I'm not saying it will be easy to get him from Vancouver, would take one hell of an offer. But what else is there for Vancouver to do if they want a shakeup? Could say Luongo is that shakeup, but Schneider still lost 2 of 3 games against LA. Although Schneider still played great, there wasn't any goal support. Kesler got 0 goals these playoffs. Last year I think was an anomaly in his goal count, this year is much more on par of what kind of player I see Kesler as in terms of goals in the regular season and playoffs. He will probably get around 10 more points next year than this, but his goal total I don't think will change much.
