In other news, Kessel has 71 points, while Seguin has 54.

Shhhhhh!

Probably not a good idea to highlight this trade......

1. Seguin is what? 20?....doesn't get ice time in Boston but still puts up good numbers.

2. He plays 2 ways. He leads the NHL in +/- at his age

3. He's a centre. It's very hard to pick up a star centre, as he will be for likely 15 more years.

4. The trade was not Kessel for Seguin, it was Kessel for Seguin, 6'5" Dougie Hamilton (currently the best defenceman in the OHL) and one other guy.

5. Seguin already has a ring.

that and there are two more ringers waiting in the the weeds from that trade that are going to be good. It was a good trade, we got a ringer....it's on the players that they absolutely tanked it to last effin place. 5 wins and that pick was #13

It may be a wash for you, but I'd take Seguin over Kessel easily.

While we're at it how about Rask for Raycroft?
how do you know colbourne and biggs won't be impact players they haven't played a game yet. Liles is better than kaberle, kessel for seguin cancel out right now atleast. Obviously the raycroft trade was horrible and way back, so I didn't bother mentioning it.

Also you're calling cancer surviving kessel a pussy? way to take it personal man no need for that

Again, Kaberle was a rental and yeah, Liles is awesome. I bet you'd never even heard of him until the Leafs traded for him.

Colborne is stuck in the minors and Biggs ain't exactly tearing it up in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.

And what does Kessel being a cancer survivor have to do with anything? Should he be immune to criticism then? You better tell that to all the players in the league who voted him the most easily intimidated player in the NHL.

No I knew who he was before the trade, even if I didn't what does that have to do with him being better than kaberle? Yes they're in the minors so what?, every leaf prospect beisdes gardiner is in the minors that doesn't mean they won't make an impact.I honestly don't believe he gets intimidated that easily, if he can fight cancer and win why would he be scared of men who breathe the same air as him? He just has a quiet personality, I'm pretty sure if he was intimidated he would falter rather than becoming better and better which he's shown in his time as a leaf.I just belive this trade is closer than people really think it is.

^I agree with the Kessel being intimidated part, I think it's his timid personaility that portrays weakness.

&

For the record I like Kessel, and maybe the trade is closer than anticipated. However when I look over and see Seguin it's quite clear to me which player I would rather have on my team.

I notice Leafs are playing a bit of the trap now. I thought Burke said his teams don't play the trap

They are doing a great job of plummeting in the standings.

Re: the Leafs tanking

Please beat the Caps before doing that. Thanks.

Fuck the Bruins. They lost to the Caps at home. Thanks for nothing, Acie!

Should we assume that without Lupul, Kessel is shrinking?
