The Toronto Maple Leafs want Phil Kessel gone. Kessel wants to be gone. Could Minnesota suit both their desires? Maybe. Probably not. But maybe. Toronto wants a goalie. Minnesota now has an overly-confident goalie in Devan Dubnyk, who’s trade value has no doubt sky rocketed.
Phil Kessel – Winger
2015 3rd Round Draft Pick – Toronto
Devan Dubnyk – Goalie
Jason Pominville – Winger
2015 4th Round Draft Pick – Minnesota
The Leafs want younger players, and I think they’d settle with Pominville. He’s a great scorer. Just imagine what he’d do under Mike Babcock.
Overall, I think this trade has a 20% chance of happening. The Wild really don’t want to give up Devan Dubnyk, who’s proven himself to be worth more than the 3rd round pick Minnesota acquired him for.
