Because Kessel's a 25 year old who's put up 4 straight 30 goal seasons? The point of rebuilding is to acquire young talent, not ship it out.

He's good -- and I feel like I'm the only Leafs fan who'll say it -- but he's not top pairing good. He's definitely got above average skating, vision, and passing, but he's a bit clueless in his own zone and his positioning in front of his net is brutal. That said, as a converted forward, he's only been playing defense for a few years, and only at the pro level for one year, so I guess there's room to grow. He really just needs to get his positioning down and learn to keep an active stick.
