Yea the problem with trading Phil Kessel is you could essentially end up with a Rick Nash kind of trade.
So basically one elite player for 3-4 lesser support players, fine for a Columbus, but we really only need one or two more big pieces, not a bunch of support pieces.
Unless it's a number 1 Centre, or a #1 G+top 6 forward It would be a sideways move, even a #1 Centre trade would be a sideways move, as we'd just end up looking for a winger ala the Sundin days.
Keep him, end in the bottom 10 this year and draft your #1 C, none of this trade crap.
He's a great piece once the team becomes more well rounded.
