Since I missed the post of who you've quoted:

I actually thought it was considerably less laughable without Kesler. Legitimately. With Kesler, I mean we might as well just hand over Edler, Hamhuis and the Sedins. There is no value there to justify even mentioning Kesler.

Percy and Ashton are throw ins, Colborne/Kadri aren't enough to seal any kind of deal for either, and considering you've essentially offered that kind of value for Luongo, which is way off course anyway, that leaves Kulemin, Bozak and a 1st for Kesler.

That's horrible, horrible value. Dropping Kesler is still off base, but far less laughible then offering a package of "also rans".
