I don't deny that at all but a lot of the language he has used is very "lawyer-ish" in that it could easily be switched to, "I feel this still enhances the team now and for years to come".

If I were Leafs GM I wouldn't trade those guys and I'd rebuild for the next 2-3 years as that's how far away I feel the team is. That'd enrage fans and I guarantee you leafs talk at the end of this season is lit up with anger if the leafs miss the playoffs again.

While the value of the kessel trade is arguable, the timing was terrible bc it traded the future for a "win now" or at least win soon player. Kessel is a great piece but they lacked the rest.

Will fans cry for playoffs at all costs or wait 2-3 years without them to make 10 straight?
