And I don't see how the Leafs would move him as they have a pressing need for LW and he fits with Kessel like a glove.

Prospects struggle at times and in the case of Kreider, he struggled for the majority of his first pro season. That does not warrant him being valued above David Perron, a young, proven, scorer signed to a bargain contract.
Never said Kreider has more value than Perron. Said I wouldn't trade Kreider for Perron.
