We've been down that road - do any of you really want to try again?
Makes little sense to me, if we do this bad with him on the team, why not just add pieces around him?
It's not his fault that his two linemates are also quite weak defensively, or that our goaltending was atrocious these past few years, so I dont know how you can blame him for those 47 goals against.
yes he is below average defensively, but extremely skilled offensively, put him with a two-way centre and you have a deadly line.
adding a top 10 pick this year, most likely a potential #1 C will do wonders, and will most likely be ready by the time he's 27-28.
I see little reason to trade Kessel, as I guarentee almost all trades would be a sideways move at best.
