I am not making a case for Kessel as the worst trade, if you have been paying even the slightest bit of attention to the content of my posts you would have realized that my point is that we CANNOT CONCLUDE ANYTHING ABOUT THE TRADE RIGHT NOW SINCE WE DO NOT HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION.
THE CASE IS STILL ON-GOING!
The trade could get better, it could get worse, or it could be a wash. We don't know.
So far the Leafs have been trash since acquiring Kessel. Literally trash. And we gave up a metric ton of prospects. Now the Leafs have a trash NHL roster and below average prospects as perceived by scouts and publishers.
So far the Bruins have been contenders since ditching Kessel. They have won the Stanley Cup. And they have a metric ton of prospects to show for trading Kessel.
That's all we know. We don't know what's going to happen from here on in.
The Rask trade is still an on-going too. Most Leafs fans fear Rask will be a legitimate NHL starter and a good one too. He could. Or he could not. If he doesn't, however unlikely, all of a sudden we didn't get hosed in the Raycroft traded. And we got close to the playoffs on the back of a goalie who won a RECORD 37 games in exchange for a backup goalie. Big deal. Ill admit thats unlikely to happen but the point is WE CANT ABSOLUTELY CONCLUDE ANYTHING, LET ALONE COMPARE IT TO TRADES THAT ARE CLOSED OR ON-GOING WHEN THIS ONE IS ABSOLUTELY IN ITS INFANCY.
Theres all sorts of variables at play and we wont know for years still once more information is accounted for.
This will be the fifth time Ive explained this to you and it still hasnt sunk in. that or your just pulling my leg and are ignoring the content and just ignorantly falling back on your fallacies.
Dear lord are you not familiar with the other trades?
They are so bad. I repeat SO BAD, that the KEssel deal will never be equal.
