[TOR/BOS]Phil Kessel Traded to Toronto for 2010 1st, 2nd and 2011 1st

Quote:


The drama surrounding Phil Kessel has finally come to an end as the Boston Bruins have traded their disgruntled sniper to the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for a 1st and a 2nd round pick in 2010, and a 1st round pick in 2011 pending a trade call which is currently underway.

Kessel and the Maple Leafs then quickly agreed to terms on a new five-year, $27 million deal.

The trade ends a saga that began during the lead-up to the NHL Draft when Kessel originally appeared to be headed to Toronto in exchange for defenceman Tomas Kaberle and a draft pick. However, the deal was scuttled at the last moment due to a miscommunication over the pick.

The Bruins had been unable to re-sign the 21-year old Kessel and the two sides were miles apart on a new contract. A restricted free agent, Kessel was reportedly looking for a deal in the neighbourhood of $4-5 million a season, while the Bruins, who are right up against the league mandated $56.8 million salary cap, could not afford to sign the Madison, Wisconsin native to the terms he desired.

Good trade value for Boston.

Toronto NEEDED this deal ... good move on their part, too.

How do you only get picks back for a 21 year-old, 36 goal scorer? What a brutal trade for Boston.

Sweet. It is a steep price but I am glad we kept our roster players.

Disagree entirely.

Good trade for both franchises.

Good trade for both teams. The Leafs needed a high end scorer going forward, and Boston gets great value for an asset they couldn't afford. They are doing what you have to do, reloading on the fly.

Uh, because they can afford ZERO cap space?

Picks turn into prospects, you know...

$5.4 is overpayment. More than Perry or Carter. I can see why Boston was at an impasse.

2 1st round picks, likely to be in the top 10? They're up against the cap and their roster is set.

Ah Burke, back to your trading away draft picks ways.

Now if Toronto can get a solid center, all would be well.

I don't see why the Bruins would trade Kessel to an in-division team? You mean to tell me they couldn't get a similar package from a Nashville, New York, or someone of that fith?

Pretty good deal for Toronto fans. They get a proven scorer in exchange for some picks that Burke would botch anyways.

I'm wondering the same thing too. Not saying he won't produce, but the hockey world is really going to see what hes made of this year.
