They definitely have what it takes, but they wouldn't trad them for Kessel

I'm not sure i trade Kessels alone for Kesler + Schneider.
Schneider is unproven and i take Kessels quite easily over Kesler.
To Nuck fans claiming that Kessels wouldn't fit,i believe your wrong.
Had Kessels been playing with the twins this season i think he would be leading the league in goals right now.Everyone knows that Kessels is a 1 dementional player but he's great at that.

Kesler > Kessel
Kessel > anyone else on that team that is even remotely available (so Edler and the 2 Sedins are out of the question)

We would want nothing less than Kesler (Schneider doesn't cut it as a centrepiece for Kessel, we need something proven), but Kessel simply isn't worth Kesler and we are completely unwilling to give more than that as Kessel is our only elite offensive player.

So what's the lesson? A trade can't and won't happen. The end.

Kessel for Schneider, Schroeder/Jensen, Booth + 1st?

Even if you ignore the rumours of Kessel being a locker room cancer, he just isn't a good fit. The Canucks are a soft team and Kessel's got no balls. If Gillis did this he would be sacked immediately.

fixed.

there is no deal here that makes sense. the only real fit for kessel on the canucks is on the second line with kesler and burrows. he can be speedy playmaking winger those two really need. so basically kessel would be a ridiculously fantastic raymond replacement.

obviously he is way too expensive for that role. vancouver would have to send the real raymond, plus ballard, along with something of actual value (schneider) to make it work under the cap. and even more obvious, toronto would never want that package for their best player.

kesler? that's insane. even if cody was still here, you don't trade kesler for anything short of a franchise defenseman... and even then i'm not sure. there aren't the players in vancouver to replace what kesler does at BOTH ends and in every situation (at even strength, both special teams), so you would have to get one back in any trade.

well something we all learned today, you can be a top 5 scorer in the NHL but if you play for the leafs you're not a star.

Kessel is better than the Sedins?!

Kessel's a great talent - don't get me wrong - but he's a complete misfit with the Canucks. Having him with the Sedins would make that line softer than a pillow and he has nothing to do with the AMEX's crash and bang. And GMMG wouldn't give up either Sedin for him.

Dumb thread.

This my friends is HF boards in a nutshell. RIDICULOUS comment. I swear people around here don't have a brain.

HF:We hate Phil Kessel. Wait, did you say Rick Nash? I'll give up everything for that guy! it's only because he doesn't have a center! Kessel does have a center, Bozak is a stud!!

I'd do Schneider, Raymond, Connauton and a first if we sign Shultz. Connauton would be tough to giveaway but he would not be needed with Shultz and Grags in the fold.

More to it than that, it has a lot to due with Kessel being soft and we already have the Twins in the top 6, having half of our top 6 as "soft" players isn't a good idea.

I am absolutely unwilling to pay what Leafs fans or Burke would want for him. Like Raymond and a first, plus smaller pieces I guess, which is an incredibly low ball offer. Hansen and Burrows do too much for us for too little cap hit. Kessel for a Sedin maybe, but what about the other? Booth and Higgins are took close to Kesler, while he, Bieksa and Edler are part of our leadership core. Luongo and Schneider aren't close enough in value apparently. The teams are horrible trading partners, these threads never work because of this.
