The Leafs future might be better if Schiefele pans out. But why take the risk if you're the Leafs? You know what you have in Kessel, you can't guarantee that Schiefele will be a 2nd line centre in the NHL, nevermind a star player.. so why are the Leafs making this trade? Because they might be able to sign Corey Perry? I just don't see the logic. Why not, if you're so concerned with finding a centre, trade Kessel for a proven centre in the NHL? Or maybe trade him for the rights to Getzlaf and Perry when/if the season starts up?
