Yes, the Leafs aren't trading Kessel for Seguin because the Bruins wouldn't do that. They know all about Kessel and traded him for draft picks which turned out to be better then most would have projected.


It's not a knock on Kessel, he's a good player and one of the top snipers in the world, but he isn't a player you build your team around. He doesn't bring enough to the table.

Seguin is a potential number 1 centre; a player you can build your team around. Don't be ridiculous.
What exactly do you think Seguin is? He's a winger... nice try though. If we want to move Kessel to center we could - and there has been much talk about it but most feel he's better suited on the wing. He's succeeding there... so don't screw around with it.

Sniper? Honestly this alone proves how little you no about Kessel. Maybe early on his career yes but he's completely changed his style. Kessel is more of a playmaker and makes those around him better. If you want examples - look at Lupul's career. If you want a second example look at JVR so far.

Seguin can only hope to be an 80 + point player. So why in the hell would leaf fans want to trade for Seguin to only hope he will be as good as Kessel? Your points are ridiculous - and extremely flawed.
