I'm thinking that we could get more "in return" if we took Kessel and traded his rights for IMMEDIATE needs (i.e. scoring winger, D-man to compliment Gonchar, etc).
I like Jordan Staal, he is a big forward with a can't miss work ethic. Judging by all the high praise he and his brothers are getting by scouts everywhere I gather that he is going to be a good all around player and could be an ideal winger on the top 2 lines.
Staal is probably going to be drafted 4th or 5th so trading down that far and picking up another decent player would be smart. Kessel would get more in return than Johnson would because goals put asses in seats and everyone of the leagues worst except us need alot of help at center.
Either that or draft Johnson.
