Do the Isles really have money to pay Kessel?

He's worth 7M+ easily on the UFA market. Even though he hasn't scored a goal yet, I really like this Kessel better than the one playing under Wilson.

He's not going to get moved for picks. If he ever gets traded, it will be for NHL ready top prospect + 1st.

i agree with this. strome has good potential as a top line center imo and the first will likely be a top 10 pick if not top 5. i dont think it would be worth it to take a less pick or a lesser prospect from a leafs point of view.

You don't trade away top prospects in a deal for an established player unless that player is going to get your team over the hump. If the Isles were already a playoff team, and though Kessel could make them a contender, it may be reasonable. But I doubt anyone looks at the Isles right now and thinks they are a contender, even with Kessel.
Bill Torrey himself couldn't have said it better.

I guess the Islanders might ask the same question that the Leafs should have asked before they acquired Phil: what are the Islanders a Kessel away from?

To also add two rebuilding pieces to the trade for a soon to be 8 million dollar contract makes no sense for the isles.
Could be but the way they look right now it's more likely gonna be in the 12-18 range

Kessel is a one note offensive force on the rightside. He starts and finishes plays fast. If he could harness his speed like Grabner has hed be an elite winger for Tavares. That line would score at will from any zone on the ice.
