Why wouldn't you get a comparable (I'd say superior but I don't want to hurt feelings) player for free?

Hell, even if you get an ok top 6 forward like Clowe, Backstrom + decent top 6 forward > Grabovski + Kessel, especially given how much winger depth the Leafs have even without him.
It's pretty obvious you don't know what you are talking about, so just give it up.

There is so much wrong with what you have said I won't bother with a point by point rebutal.

With your logic every team should trade their star players and get "comparable" free agents in the summer. Not to mention throw our playoff chances out the window by gutting our team because that's what good GM's do.....

Getting a 1C and a 2DFD for inferior pieces = gutting the team.

Got it.

Or did you have an issue with my Semin vs Kessel breakdown
