The latest rumor from TSN had the Boston Bruins offering Phil Kessel to Toronto for Tomas Kaberle AND the 7th overall pick. Eklund has now reported that Kessel for Kaberele straight up is not enough. Conflicting...but I take McKenzie's word of Eklund's any day of the week.
I don't want to trade Kessel, as his potential is very high, but the first offer is one of the better ones I have seen. Kaberle has a very affordable contract for the next two seasons at 4.25 per and is one of the best puck movers in the game. The 7th overall pick could land us talent close to Phil, but we would not see that player for a few seasons, which is important since we would not have to pay him.
