I think you guys are nuts. What makes Kessel so untouchable? He is a good player, but c'mon if the deal is good I'd ship him out in a heartbeat. He's not a franchise player and he's not suited to playing in Toronto. It's just not meant to be. You guys are falling into the Leaf fan mindset of massively overrating Kessel because he plays for the Leafs. The world won't end if he's traded and the Leafs will be better off in the long run.

Besides, do you guys honestly believe for a second that he has any interest of playing in Toronto past his current contract?

Do the deal now because his value will never be higher.
