Steen
Cole
Russell
Rattie
Goalie (Whomever has the most value, probably Allen)
Draft Picks

If we can trade any three of those for a legit #1 C (Not Stats or Thornton please) I'd be ecstatic.
well kessel wasn't a top 3 pick, he was 5th I believe, and he wasn't a top line winger yet. and even giving up 3 of those players you're not going to get a player like huberdeau. kessel was traded because Boston brass didn't like him. florida still loves huberdeau. if you're looking for a kessel like deal, kadri from Toronto would be the best example but it may be too late as he finally broke through. Or a risker move may be kunetsov from Washington. Washington wants to win now so they may be selling him. If I remember correctly he and Tarasenko are friends from the junior team so there's a small possibility he would come over earlier for us than for Washington.
