I understand that when rebuilding you need your high draft picks, but Kessel is playing by himself out there. Look what he was done for Lupuls career.
I hate the Leafs, but Kessel IMO is a good player who makes Toronto a better team.
I'm not disputing Kessel's talent. However, that is the type of trade you only make to add what you think is the missing ingredient to an already top tier team. A bottom feeder team should not make that trade unless they need a "face" for the franchise. Obviously TO does not fall into that category.
As Rat mentioned, Mr. Seguin (an Ontario boy) would look great in a Leafs sweater and would help keep the ranting down. Not to mention the other two picks given away...
