We all know Kessel is not a salary dump here, but if traded a valuable bargaining chip to get a return that the Leafs would build upon.
In regards to the original Kessel trade the big difference being back then Kessel was only starting out, and now Leafs would be dealing from a position of strength by potentially trading a player that finished in the top 10 overall scoring 2 years running..
Since Kessel's value today >>> value 4 years ago now proven, Leafs should logically expect his potential return to be > original cost. That return should be significant and help the Leafs going forward should Nonis decide to go in a different direction.
If you traded Kessel today, What would you take as fair value? and do you think that the trade would bring the team closer to winning a cup?
