Sully and Poolchamp sum up my thoughts exactly. Kessel for Luongo is a no brainer for the Canucks.

Defensive play is something that can be taught, but that's not what makes him valuable.

His attitude problems are something that coaching, the right environment and the right team can help correct (also I personally think that those are problems are over blown).

If Kessel was on the block for Luongo, the deal would be done, and we wouldn't have a 40ish thread legacy of Leafs and Canucks fans bickering.

He might not be ideal, but as we keep telling Leafs fans, he'd be the best available top line winger out there now.
