Don't see why either team does this, but I think the value isn't bad.

Personally I prefer Eriksson but Phil's been a PPG player.

Don't see Toronto taking on the older player. Toronto's plan seems to be moving ahead with their young core of Kessel, JVR, and Kadri.

It's a decent proposal, but I'd keep Kessel for a lot of reasons, one of which is that he is two years younger. Another of which is that he is really holding up his end of the bargain right now in Toronto and with his speed and shot gives us an added dimension that not every team possesses. As he proved last night, he is a game breaker. Perhaps, Eriksson is, too, but I'll stick with the one that we already have.

It has been suggested multiple times on our forum that Benn would be better on wing, therefore we are in need of a #1 center. We have ample wingers coming through our system. I am just unsure if Toronto needs a #1 LW center more than a #1 center right now.

And you're a Stars fan?

Loui has one bad season and you want to trade him?

Excluding this season, he's better than Kessel.

Love Eriksson, but I'm not trading Kessel for him.

Since when is Kessel a center?

That's a lot of ignorant speculation.

Disregarding Loui's current season, he is the only winger that holds any real value to obtain a #1 center.

Yeah not to gang up with everyone else but Kessel's not a center.

This proposal seems like a trade just for the sake of trading... both are high end wingers, although Loui has yet to crack that magical PPG threshold and he's only cracked 30 goals once.

Dallas does not have to add anything for Kessel and Eriksson by himself is more valuable.

Reread #22 and add that to the fact that Kessel is more than two years younger. Your counterargument is what exactly? Just curious.
