Tragic? No.
Stupid? Yes.

Toronto could retain some salary for the next 1 and 1/2 seasons, until Kessel becomes a ufa.

At that point, with Kessel reportedly expected to ask for $7m-$8m per, the isles would be paying 100% of Kessel's new deal.

And I think we will see Brock Nelson, centering the 2nd line. Staples says the isles front office and scouts love him. Frans drops to the 3rd line.
