I understand the whole contract thing I was taking it as a dig on Kessel.

1st off I never suggested that trade I responded to a post that implied that OEL is a better player(has more impact on a game) then Kessel. Kessel will be resigned in Toronto, when they gave Bozak his deal and let Grabo walk that all but confirmed it for me. To that note say Kessel gets 7 for 7 then value wise he is worth OEL but star term for term trades rarely even happen unless a player is cancerous.

I wish I could have a disclosure that says : If I make a proposal thread in the forum I have all ready thought of contract deets. Usually I am simply comparing player A to player B on on ice merit alone.
