No, I'll continue to rub my eyes, thanks.
I'm not sure how trading Neuvirth for Kessel is comparable to trading Frattin for Wilson.

Wilson is largely a player who hasn't hit his expected potential and has been rumored to be in his coach's dog shed. Kessel has excelled and just put up a huge season.

Frattin meanwhile showed a huge scoring potential, leading the NCAA in scoring in his last year, then playing well in his first season in the NHL and playing spectacularly in his first pro playoff experience.

I fail to see how it astounds you that we'd be hesitant to trade him for a guy that has largely failed to meet his draft expectations.
