This guy has got it right, we have enough offensively and we have depth.

Kessel wouldn't be a good fit and he would be terrible for us long term.

There you go. And before someone asks. Yes we can afford the cap, provided Alberts is claimed off waivers or we dump Lapierre or Malhotra.

In terms of offensive capabilities. Only Daniel is better than Kessel; overall the Sedins and Kesler surpass him. He is far from redundant.
What happens next season?

Nah, Tanev is a huge part of our team, Raymond has been playing well and Kassian has the demension Clifford brings + more skill IMO.
