While I agree Jones is a perfect fit, I also could see with Sakic and Roy and new Avs brain trust on board that moving the pick does exist. Patrick Roy even announced it publicly during his press conference.

Kessel was acquired for the #2 pick overall + more originally by the Leafs. Is his present value not = to his original cost?
Kessel was acquired for a 1st round pick that eventually became 2nd overall, it was never traded for Kessel straight up.

Just saying. The plan isn't exactly fool proof either.
Yeah a couple more years and people won't laugh when I say we won the Kessel trade. It will be a given.

Maybe 6.5mil for someone who has finished top 10 in points 2 years in a row?

While I see the value in that deal I don't see how it fits with the Leafs plan, we just made the playoffs for the first time last year and we are going to trade our best player for a prospect? Really don't know if I would do that deal.

Based on that faulty logic, the Avs would have to add to the Pick to have any chance of obtaining Kessel

This is the Leafs. Toronto. Our best players are never good enough, at least until they've left or retired. We should probably just start over and draft the next biggest thing so that they can not be good enough and we can do it all over again.

I'm really just sick of it. Thankfully, the fans seem to recognize this pattern. Perhaps they listened to far too many nights of people bashing Mats Sundin on Andy Frost's call-in show while we consistently made the playoffs.

Saw the word "feschuk" in the link at the top and didn't even bother reading......

YAWN.

Hey Feschuk, don't you have mommies to call? Would you like I should get Phil's mommy on the line for some inside scoop?

It is not such an outrageous idea. It all depends if you think that he is worth whatever he will be asking for. Some people think 'yes' some people think 'no'. It also matters what he wants to do. Let me tell you, if they told me that I had to carry Bozak on my line for a few more years to come, I'd walk.

just because burke paid 2 firsts and a 2nd doesnt mean thats what kessels value is. burke could have offer sheeted kessel for less.

the aves could easily and justifiably take mackinnon. stastny is likely on the way out, Who knows what ror situation is long term and duchene could be a hit away from be done.

So we make the playoffs for the first time in 9 years, were almost through to the second round and instead of 'tinkering' and adding to the lineup to improve Feschuk wants to trade the best player on the team for picks and prospects?

How is that going to the help the Leafs next year?

The Leafs are no longer in a rebuild. Trading top players for highest return (read propects and picks) is no a helpful option anymore. It's a step back. Yeah great we'll get a good player in a deep draft, but are they really going to step in and make an huge impact? Are they going to offset the cost of losing Phil Kessel? No. It'll set us back 2 or 3 years at least.

Philly traded Mike Richards for Brayden Schenn (#5 overall) & Wayne Simmonds (2nd rounder).

&

Jeff Carter was traded for the #7 overall (Sean Couturier) & Jakub Voracek (former #7 overall) = 2 X top 10 picks.

Phil Kessel was acquired for 2 X 1sts and 2nd originally.

Kessel as a top 10 NHL scorer currently value should be at its highest in trade value.

Surely you can't be serious about 6.5 for Kessel. Do you really think he is worth ~$2M a year less than Corey Perry? I would be amazed if Kessel got anything less than $7.5M and if such a deal was for less than the 8 year maximum.

If someone made that argument to you, would you not point out that Carter and Richards are major contributors on the team in the WCF right now and Couturier, Voracek, Schenn, and Simmonds are at home watching the playoffs on television?

It's amazing that in 35 GP Seguin has yet to put up as many points as Kessel did in 15 by the same age.

14 PTS in 35 GP. 8 PTS in his last 33 GP. Boston has scored 100 goals and Seguin has been in on 8 of them.

What is your point ?

Kessel is at home watching the playoffs also on television, so does that lower his trade value as a result of his teams situation?

Seeing articles like that re-enforce why I don't read anything from the Toronto sports media. For every kernel of useful writings they produce (the Raptors name change is one IMO) they vomit out 99 tons of ****. The sooner they're out of business the better.

I just found it humorous that in your attempt to argue for trading Kessel, you picked a team that traded two of their better players for futures and got significantly worse. I think you knew my point and are being intentionally obtuse here.
