Why even bother bringing up Seguin? Kessel finished last season in the top ten in both goals and points. Why do people talk about this deal as if we gave up Gretzky for him when the reality is that Seguin hasn't accomplished anything in the league yet.

Hamilton, Seguin, Luongo, Niedermayer are the only really unfortunate ones

I've come to this sort of realization lately also. Seguin is a great young player, but its not like he's Sidney Crosby. I kind of doubt we would be much further along with him in our line up than Kessel. The second first round pick hurts a bit, but I like Rielly's game a little bit more than Hamilton's. But I also acknowledge that the 9th pick is something we will never get back. But I also doubt we would be THAT much better in the future with them vs. Kessel. We still really badly need that future #1 Center though.

Now having said that, it still sucks that they are in our division for the next few years. All I was trying to say was, while they are incredibly talented and have a bright future, would they make THAT much of a difference for us? I'm not 100% sure they would have. It's not defending the trade. Any time you trade high first round picks it's always questionable. I just don't see Sidney Crosby when I look at Seguin. I think the recent JVR, Colborne, Rielly, Kadri, Finn, Gardiner, Biggs, Percy and Ashton additions have soften the blow for me also.

This is not a story to get all worked up about.....it is also a story that can be written about every team in the league.

It's the same article they throw out almost every week. Yes, we know the Leafs traded their picks. What can we do about it? Seriously, people need to move FORWARD.

regardless we would have got niedermeyer unless we went off the board. San Jose was an expansion team, and was gauranteed the 2nd overall pick.
Maybe we would have traded up for the 2nd.

Knowing Toronto and the drafting history, they would have passed over Niedermayer anyways and taken Lachance or great power forward Alex Stojanov.

If we re-sign Kessel long term at a good deal and get him that true #1 centre, and as our team matures and toughens, I don't think they would enjoy Kessel scoring on them either. Kessel is more dangerous with the puck (he could also pass, so don't be fooled), has greater speed and a better shot.

Seguin was never a Crosby, heck, he's only hyped up by TSN with their Taylor vs Tyler thing like they do with every draft, and hyped up even more in this hockey crazed market because Boston got him with our pick. We wouldn't even paid much attention to him if it wasn't our pick.

One game of Yushkevich > a career of Zubrus. That guy was a warrior.

What I don't get is why the OP consisitantly feels the need to post this kind of garbage story on this site? Do we not have enough idiot posts here that we need someone bringing in articles as useless as this one? Not only is this article poor, but it is unoriginal as this particular topic has been picked apart by sports analysists in media of all levels for years.
