Kessel's going to be a UFA very soon... what are the chances that he'll re-sign with the Panthers on the open market?

If they don't think they'd stand much of a chance against other teams throwing "stupid money" at him, then I can completely understand why a young team wouldn't move two of their best prospects for hm.

You'd essentially be buying a guy that might bolt at the worst possible time for the franchise.

If we're talking hockey skills, sure, the value is there. But taking contracts into account, and "how long you control the players", I wouldn't do the deal either if I was a Panthers fan.
