Thank god you said you aren't serious about this. That is TURRible (pun intended).

Point 1 ... I can say the same thing in Pittsburgh about why trade Kennedy for another D man? We have a shortage of forward options and while Kennedy would be available, he needs to be packaged with a high pick for an upgrade (example and I'm sure you wouldn't do it but TK and a second for Greening - this is what I'm talking about).

Point 2 ... When you have a ridiculous idea from a fan, its usually that they don't want him in XXXX city. I could say Pittsburgh offers Kennedy, Tangradi and a third to Toronto for Kessel. That certainly isn't fair value and I know this, but it shows I have a strong opinion that I don't think Kessel is a good fit due to flaws.
