Scheifele is nothing more than a prospect, while Kessel is easily one of the most intimidating, creative offensive players in the game. And he's still really young to boot.
This trade sets the Leafs back 5 yrs.

Agreed about kessel but you're not giving any value to scheifele. If he was drafted 6 spots up higher you'd probably have a completely different outlook. Think about it this way, if I made a deal like this for Giroux when he was simply
A prospect, I wouldve won in the long run. I've just analyzed the kid for a while and think he's got what it takes to be a consistent 60-80 point player. I don't care about point totals so far as team chemistry, kessel will always score more than mark but at the end of the day, my opinion is that he will become a great center. It's a better foundation for the future in my mind, and a better tool for Carlyle to use in this new offensive system.
