Carter was traded for the 8th overall in 2011, Jake Voracek and a 3rd round pick in 2011.

Kessel was trade for a 1st rounder in 2010, a first round in 2011, and a 2nd rounder in 2010.

Kessel was not traded for Seguin, Hamilton or Knight. That happened after the trade and was the result of a bad call by Burke. So while those pieces became what they did, it is simply not correct to say Kessel was traded for Seguin/Hamilton/Knight. In fact Kessel wasn't even traded for the 2nd overall in 2010, and the 9th overall in 2011.

However Carter was traded for the 8th overall pick (not Couturier mind you), a 22 year old established top 6 forward with size and potential, and a 3rd round pick.
