I'm really starting to hope Hamilton flops hard in the NHL thanks to all these Bruins' fans who find it necessary to bring the trade up whenever possible.

As for the original proposal, Jets take that in a heartbeat. Is OP serious? Scheifele hasn't proven jack at the NHL level, while Kessel is a proven sniper who can pot 35 goals a season. What if Scheifele can't produce in the NHL? What if Perry doesn't sign with the Leafs? Can Lupul maintain the same point production without Kessel? There are way too many risks and variables involved with this proposal, the only constant is Kessel and you're shipping him out.
