Kessel has been so awful these past few years playing on lines with shoot first players like Lupul and Kulemin. And Kesler has been really terrible with shoot first players like Samuelsson and Booth on his line.
Kessel is simply to expensive both cap wise and value wise for this team to bring in. Trading for Kessel ultimately puts Vancouver in cap hell next year. Cups are won by depth, not by 3-4 star players are no supporting cast.
Swapping David Booth for Phil Kessel does almost nothing to the team's depth and adds a hell of a lot of skill.
I think it's completely unrealistic to think he's traded, but people are kidding themselves if he wouldn't be a huge improvement here.
