I forget which radio show I was listening to but one of them here in Toronto said look for Kessel to be on the move. Then the commentators speculated a Kessel to Ducks deal lol. But I think Nonis might move him and I wouldn't be upset if he did, depending on the return.

They're about to be faced with deciding whether to let guys walk and extend the rebuilding period, or retaining an expensive core that has shown not to be able to get the job done.
Interesting time to hire a GM that is known for overpaying his players. Agents of all these players are smiling ear to ear, can't wait to tell Nonis what these guys will cost.

It's going to be VERY interesting to see how he handles this. There's an opportunity here to retain 1-2 key pieces (Kessel, Grabo, JVR?) move the rest and do a proper rebuild without cutting corners. There's also an opportunity to keep all these guys and move forward with an expensive team that isn't quite good enough to really contend.

I hope for Toronto's sake that they take route #1, but I fear for a number of reasons (Burke firing, the Jays spending without regard for the future, MLSE's history of tradmill teams) that it will be #2.

i've actually been speculating since minny signed the big 2 this summer that kessel would be on his way there when his contract is up. Perfect heatley replacement and their contracts are up at the same time.

Couldn't agree more.

The funny thing about that is that you responded to Vankiller Whale. Have a quick read of his 1000 posts on Luongo. Then you'll understand delusional.

Exactly. The logistics makes perfect sense. Given this, what could Toronto gain from trading Kessel to Minny (under the assumption he re-signs with them)?
