We still currently have the best player in the deal RIGHT NOW. Going forward I think Seguin and Kessel will be close in terms of value, the only real wildcard that could make it lopsided is Hamilton, but until he performs at the NHL level, I don't think this deal was a huge loss for us, yet.
Kessel; g and a wise here are the stats
99goals 102a for 201pts
Seguins 40 and 49 for 89pts and neither knight or hamilton have played a game in the nhl--best player now is Kessel, but in five years it one of those deals that come back to bite teams in the ass

Welcome to Edmonton Connor McDavid--the rest of you HA HA HA HA HA HA
