The problem with the Kessel trade wasn't giving up two firsts for a 35-goal forward, even one that doesn't drive the play. The problem with the Kessel trade was Burke grossly overrating his team, so that those picks turned out to be very high firsts. If the Leafs had been even a bubble team it was a good trade. But Burke failed to provide the Leafs with any kind of decent goaltending, which led to those picks being very high picks.
