Unless someone can provide me with a realistic plan of how you would build a team around Phil Kessel that does not involve:

Banking on the Hope/Wish/Prayer that a Quality UFA will sign here in the off-season
Mortgaging the Future via Assets traded to help Phil Kessel realize his true potential
Banking on Mid-Level prospects to over-achieve make significant contributions to NHL club

I'm all ears ...
YOU draft a bloody center this year. If you got to move some other picks to get into the top 10 then so be it.

Man it is so freaking easy.

And it's not like everyone on this roster is going to be here in 2-3 yers anyway. Trade them for picks and use those picks to ensure a #1C in this years draft.
