With Philly though, you have your strong core, adding a complimentary piece to take you to the next level. Giroux with a sniper like Kessel would be unreal.
That is very true. But the brass are very very high on Sean. When he matures into a man he could be a beast. Hey by the way. I wish you guys the best with JVR. The trade might be the best thing to happen to him.
So the Leafs deal a top NHL offensive player, a young goalie with realistic #1 potential, and 2 fringe 2nd liners for a top C prospect, a top G prospect and a young fringe 2nd liner..... basically same players just younger with questions marks surrounding them.
aka, I agree with a Sens fan and disagree with the three-four leaf fans.
Kessel is an excellent sniper, but with 1.5 years left he might not have the highest value right now, and getting a potential #1C and a pick I think makes a lot of sense.
I think you're barking up the wrong tree with Philly. He just isn't a great fit there. IMO getting max value for him will require a team for which goalscoring is a huge weakness, and who can realistically get an extension done if given a window.
i don't even like either team, but man do the Leafs get the shaft here.
Philly adds SIGNIFICANTLY more before the Leafs even give this one any thought.
Coming from a pens fan this will not be taken serious . As an Oiler fan i would not do this trade . I rather have a young 2 way center that is under control for the next 6 years then a soft winger that a UFA in a year and a half
If we can't aquire a centre to play with Phil than I would definatnly consider something along these lines... We need that number 1 guy and phil may be the only asset worthy. But the flyers adding Kessel is a lot more value than the leafs adding a sophomore with high potential. Giroux - Kessel would be something to watch. I'd want Voracek coming with him, with Macarthur going the other way.
No thanks. Flyers don't need to score any more goals. Flyers need defense, trading away their best defensive forward is counter productive just to add to an area where we clearly don't need help. Value may be fine or not in the eyes of Toronto fans but I don't think you'll find a Flyers fan that would be ok with this at all.
