    Default Advice on team please!

    Team/settings in sig. Any thoughts on improvements?

    - Have an offer for my P. Kane for Kessel. Pull the trigger?
    - I think I could use more hits as well. M. Foligno is still on the wire. Yes?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Kane would provide some Hits, but I still think I'd stick with Phil the Thrill.

    I think I would make that trade. Kessel is more focused than Kane, he has some off ice issues.

    I could try and unload Getz if you can. I am not high on him. Package him with Kane for Kessel and someone else.

    I'll be that guy and disagree...I'd keep Kane over Kessel

    Kane has been 70+ pts every year except last and I expect a bounce back especially when he got his head handed to him in the aftermath of his immature behavior this off-season...he's sounded more focused since and I sense he will get his act together

    Kessel had not score 70+ pts until last year which consisted of a red hot first half and then a slow slide in the second half once Lupul went down and Toronto imploded...

    That leads to the other important issue, team/organization. Chicago has a very good team and organization who won a Cup 3 years ago while Toronto is a flaming mess with little apparent direction...they still do not even have a #1 C to play with Kessel, JVR is already injured, are going to be a bad +/- team again, goalies are highly questionable etc.

    Kane is 24 and Kessel is 25 so they both have now and future value, but if I had to bet who would reach it (and has reached more of it so far) I would side with Kane...

    ah.but in a straight up trade, Kane for Kessel, I feel its fairly even and not really selling low or buying high. Kane and Kessel have similar upsides and Kessel is much more the pure goal scorer, which generally goes further in any league.

    what i mean about their upsides not being similar is that while i think their ceilings might be the same i think they both have different likelyhoods of hitting those ceilings based on the fact that one of the players (the younger one) has had more consistency than the other one

    kane has had 2 seasons with 1 point per game while kessel has had 1

    kane has had 2 seasons with .88 points per game while kessel has had 1

    they both can hit the same numbers but i think one is a much surer thing than the other is

    i would give kane a much better chance of hitting a point per game again given he has done it twice

    until kessel does it again i cant give him the same chance of being able to do it again

    i wasnt clear with the way i said i didnt find the upsides similar
