I know it's hard - but TOR fans are going to have to come to grips with the fact that if Kessel is traded, it's not going to be for anything close to what the original deal TOR/BOS deal ended up being. He might get a couple of 1st & a prospect (or equivelant value), but it almost certain that those picks won't be from a lottery team.
Facts are facts. He is a pure sniper like the OP asks; and there is literally nothing on their roster besides the pick and maybe 1-2 prospects in their pool - that would even keep Nonis on the phone for a half second.
