Two firsts and a second

Seeing how the kessel trade worked out, would you guys give up two firsts ( 2014 AND 2015) and a second rounder for a top 5 defender in the league?

For Keith or Weber or Doughty or Pietrangelo or OEL, yes.

Kessel is closer to a 20th-25th forward in the league than 5th and that's me being a bit generous.

Two firsts and a 2nd for a young franchise D is a no-brainer.

I think kessel is top 5 at his position in the league.

Considering the composition of our team, we can afford that. I say yes.

I'd give up 4 firsts for Weber, Pietrangelo, Doughty, Keith, OEL, or Karlsson... so yeah I would make a trade like that.

Hey, we didn't give up one first for a franchise d-man, why would we give up two?

Suter, Weber, Daughty, Pietro, Subban easily

Keith, Karlsson, OEL, Hedman, J. Johnson, and McDonagh probably wouldn't upset me either even though it would overpayment.


but I'm currently feeling desperate. I do like our prospect pool though

The only player listed that is arguably not worth 2 1st's and a 2nd on that list is JMFJ.


The rest are easily worth the 2 1sts, even if one is a Top 5 1st(It wouldn't be if the Avs had any one of those guys on the team).


I would gladly trade those picks for probably around 15-20 Dmen in reality.

Ok I read 2 1sts and Kessel and immediately clicked no

After reading the topic I would like to change it to yes.

The Kessel deal still sucked !
