And If we ended up with either of those packages Philly ended up with, I'm satisfied.
Well, you brought up a slew of trades like the Shanahan/Pronger one, which really isn't like the ones you just mentioned but moving along...

The Kessel deal was going to be win/win almost no matter what from a Boston perspective. They were already a good playoff team with depth scoring who could stand to lose him, not that it wouldn't hurt in the short term a little. The Stars aren't in that position right now. Again, "futures" are one thing and getting solid roster players in a swap is something else.
