I definately know where you're coming from. Trading Kessel would be the easiest path towards getting a #1 C or a #1 G. How many are available currently that are worth giving up Kessel for? We don't know. I just find it way too risky to trade a proven 25 turning 26 year old all star winger for draft picks which would be the next closest avenue we could possibly go down.

I'm not against trading Kessel for an improvement in the teams composition. I'm just disgusted by the amount of people who think Kessel does next to nothing for this team and has little to no room for improvement when he shows so much promise.

It'll be interesting to see what Nonis does after this year with Kessel but we got to wait and enjoy the season first.
