That was not the Senators decision, Alfredsson was an UFA.

Plus he was at the end of his career, and Kessel is not, so not a fair comparison.

Maybe compare the return for Spezza?




But do you think the leaf would have been better off with Seguin and Hamilton today?

- D0PPELGANGER

Neither player lasted very long with the Bruins... And they didn't really get much return on them when all is said and done.




Edit: Spezza got a return?

Kessel, when all is said and done, got two firsts and a second. Kapanen was Pittsburgh's top forward prospect, Harrington their second ranked dman.

Do you think the sens would be better off trading Alfredson before the became a UFA?
- senstroll



At his age (40?) he would not have brought much back in return, so no.

Hardly a fair comparison (you're making) to a 27 year old Kessel.


Are you avoiding the "would the leafs have been better off with Seguin & Hamilton than trading for Kessel in the first place" query?

So are you saying that the leafs have NOT been better off with Seguin & Hamilton than trading for Kessel in the first place?


Spezza brought back Alex Chiasson, Nicholas Paul and Alexander Guptill, plus a second-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

I like the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Nick Paul who started on the fourth line at the most recent WJC by the gold medal game he was playing with (Curtis) Lazar and (Connor) McDavid.

He might find himself a call up from Binghamton at some point in the next season.

You know you don't have to continue to defend the Kessel trade, made by Burke? Neither are connected with the leaf anymore..........except for the 15% of Kessel's salary for the next 7 seasons.

If you could have sent a Trade-Terminator back in time, to prevent the Kessel trade, and the leafs would then have retained their picks, used them to select Seguin and Hamilton......would you do it?

Because if you wouldn't, you're saying the return (from the Penguins) is going to be better than having both Seguin and Hamilton in their line up to start this coming season.

Is anyone on the planet still arguing the Leafs won the Kessel deal with Boston?

It was a deal that Burke rolled the dice on, thinking he'd be dealing mid round 1sts and 2nd, and ended up with the worst case scenario of them ending up lottery picks a year after the deal was made.
Lets say Leafs finish 10th worst that year and the next year - and the trade looks like this : Kessel for Dylan McIlrath, Christian Thomas, Jonas Brodin

The idea for the trade wasnt terrible, the player Burke received was an excellent offensive weapon, but the picks turned out to be more than what Burke and Chiarelli expected. Leafs tank it at worst time and lose trade

I didnt have a problem with it at the time (again, if Leafs finish 10th worst look at what the trade turns out to be). Kessel is special and was 23 or whatever when they got him.

It just ended up with quite literally the worst case scenario in terms of who the picks turned into

It certainly did
which is why you dont gamble like that without protecting the pick. Burke was an arrogant twat like that

Montreal and the Rangers will be in a fierce battle for 5th place.

The Bruins will be a complete (frank)ing disaster (Yay!)

i know he also does not fit the parameters but it really does feel good to say and know that Jake Voracek eviscerates Bobby Ryan in all ways
