Damn, I was hoping the Avs would jump up and trade with Boston to grab Kessel. A Wolski-Kessel-Svatos line would have looked nice.
Ah well. I do like that the Avs have stockpiled some extra 2nd rounders with this deal, plus getting Leopold addresses a direct need. I didn't want them to give Tanguay a long term dealk at $4.5 million per year or more. I just wasn't comfortable with the committing that kind of cap space to him over a multitude of years.
