Even if DW wanted to do a deal for Kessel for either Pavelski or Couture, he would be immediately fired for doing so because he would be just throwing money away.

This on top adding more? That just doesn't make SJ better at all.

Clowe is actually a great starting point for a trade.
Top 6
Alternate captain on a top team
Shootout player
Tough as nails
Big presence on the bench

We can probably do Clowe & Freddie Hamilton for Kessel
Thats probably the best prospect you can possibly get from us. No pick involved.
Clowe is an absolute no-go. The guy doesn't fit the age group or the kind of player we'd like for Kessel.

Pavelski is a reasonable return as San Jose is already deep at C with Thornton and Couture possibly and with Gomez in the fold now.
