Not that I think any team WOULD trade a legitimate #1 C for Kessel. But if we could, you wouldnt not pull the trigger over concerns about finding a replacement winger...
Our top 6 wingers (without Kessel) compare pretty well to most SC champions top 6 wingers. LA had what, Brown and Williams on their first line?... Boston had something like Lucic and Horton or Lucic and Ryder on the first line.
Every SC winning team over the past 7-8 years had significantly better centres than we do. But only about half of them had significantly better wingers compared to what we have minus Kessel. Centre is by far the more important position.
