Lol why would Columbus do that?
"We need a franchise type player. Let's go get Phil Kessel!!!" - Something nobody in Columbus is thinking.

Phil Kessel isn't a player to build your team around.
Columbus says no.

Kessel = the ultimate complimentary player.

not a guy you build around.

Keep the players and the pick and hope you cna draft Seth Jones or Nate McKinnon

Minnesota offers Setoguchi + Clutterbuck + 2013 1st rounder + 2013 3rd rounder.

Probably not enough.

Yes, we need scorers, but this would literally be the same mistake Burke made when he got Kessel in the first place. He would be a terrible fit here – he would have no supporting cast and we'd be without the pieces it took to acquire him. We'll be just as bad with him as without him and we'd be out 3 good prospects and the years each has in the system vs. the 16 months Kessel would be here. I don't think there's a better example of a good, but expensive-to-acquire player in the league that would fit worse here (well, maybe Jeff Carter )

This is a good place for Kessel but it's a bad fit for Columbus. Cbus needs a guy like Mike Richards to give that team an identity as their talented youngsters come in to the NHL to provide leadership and identity.

Columbus is much better off just signing an identical player in Semin for free after his contract is up this year and giving up no assets.

Would fit nicely with their large Russian group too.

It does look like they need snipers badly.

if by some chance Columbus ends up drafting 10th or something, (or drafting 1st, then 10th with the Ranger or LA pick), they should seriously consider adding another Russian in Valery Nichuskin, big, strong and talented.
