The other rumored deal that fell apart draft day because of a miscommunication was something along the lines of Phil Kessel for Tomas Kaberle and the 7th overall pick or Phil Kessel and the Bruins 1st rounder for Tomas Kaberle.
Obviously, the Kessel for Kaberle and the 7th pick would have been a great deal, but Kaberle is an expiring contract, but the 7th pick could prove to be higher than the 2 we received.
We signed Derek Morris for 3.3 million instead of acquiring Kaberle.
Now the question is, is the the trade for 2 1sts and a 2nd better than Kessel and a 1st for Kaberle?
I say the trade that just happened was better than the one that could have occurred in June.
