1) I'm not saying take dion too, but there is salary retaining in today's CBA.
2) Thats still a full season of negotiations, a trade deadline (where teams often overpay aka Ryan smyth) and even opportunity to trade his rights If it came to that.
3) kessel is a much better player than both grabner and moulson. Though moulson is a different type of player, both very good. But there's no denying kessel is better (and would be paid better)
I'm not a leafs fan who wants to trade kessel, but it's silly to say just because you have an intenal cap, you wouldn't trade for a player that would benefit your team greatly.
I understand your POV, I understand the wang cap, I don't think kessel to the isles will actually happen, what I'm saying is it would make more sense than you're making it seem.
