I wouldn't call it a win for Toronto just yet, but I'll say the trade looks a lot better today than it did when it was made...that's for sure. Kessel has turned into a legit star. Meanwhile the Bruins have already given up on Seguin and Hamilton's first season showed that he at least has a ways to go yet.
