Heres the Preds offer for those wondering, the Preds GDT was talking about him earlier.
That's not true. I spoke via twitter to kevin paul dupont about it, around 6 months after the fact. He said that Boston was willing to accept Nashville and Toronto's offers--it came down to signing Kessel. Nashville would go no higher than 4.75 per for 4 years. The leafs offered 5 at 5.5. Nashville's offer, according to KPD, was Jonathan Blum, a first and a second.
