So in essence, both sides are right as of now. But only the future holds the true answer.
Can everyone agree with that?
Nice try but not a chance.
The Kessel deal will never be worse than the other three.
Reason: 3 30 goal seasons from Kessel. We got 1 decent year from Raycroft and that is all we had to show for the three other deals.
And Kessel won't walk. He'll either extend or be traded.
