Please try and convince me that those 2 additions would make our team worse than having Phil Kessel
Kassian... don't think he'd score 25 on our top line. He'll likely get about 25 goals-projected this year if he were to play a full season with the Sedins. Imagine a top line of JVR-Bozak-Kassian. That line would sure be a doozy
Scheider does not have the experience to back up the "no brainer"... he's a marginal upgrade on Reimer at this point... and in fact his stats are worse than Reimers as of right now and he's playing on a better team.
Neither of those guys are elite players, and actually they don't even project to be elite players.
If we're looking at a goalie... in return for PK you're looking at MA Fleury, Cam Ward, Carey Price etc. in terms of quality. And newsflash, no one is giving up an elite #1 goalie, because they can't be replaced.
