Lkie I said it does not matter what Seguin & co. earn during a carreer, the fact we got Kessel instead of NOTHING, trumps everything.

Keep calling Kessel a one dimensional player. And pay attention because I will be asking you if he is a playmaking one dimensional player or goalscoring one dimensional player.
I have no idea whatsoever what you're talking about with Scott Neidermayer and have not been involved in that conversation in any way, shape, or form.

A juvenile form of argumentation is to simply move the goalposts when bested in argument. That's most likely what just happened.
When I give a very well thought out and informed opinion about the Raycroft/Kessel trades, the response was to ignore all dialogue and respond with an off topic red herring with a unscripted agenda of distraction and ambiguity.

Kessels strength is offense.
His weaknesses are poor defense, laziness, being a soft player, and a questionable attitude.
If you want to take his one strength (offense) and claim he's not "one dimensional" because you can split his one strength into two categories (scoring/passing)...
then have fun.
But then we'd get to split all of his weaknesses into different categories... and that would not paint a pretty picture.
