Would have required dumping Malhotra and Raymond before we could have made that offer. And when you're trading under performing players like so, normally it's for other under performers. See Poilout for Lattendresse.
I'd have easily given PaP that much, but with the NTC for Manny keeping him safe and no one waning to pay only a pick for Raymond kept Gillis' hands tied.
But I do suspect my reasoning has a major part in why Kassian was acquired. He may not be the prototypical playmaker. But he has the size and tenacity to fit with Kesler and played quite well as the third to Hall and Henrigue in Windsor.
