Even if you take his argument at face value, the top 5 D is always worth more than an equivalent forward. The only exception being sometimes a superstar #1C. I'd love to have Kessel, but the Leafs probably aren't interested in a handful of young assets and a pick for their top scorer. An extension would have to be agreed upon ahead of time anyways.

Too many variables.
