Why would Toronto trade Kessel and Lupul? They just started clicking and are playing amazingly together

Carlyle likes gritty players better. There was an article a few months ago on trading Kessel (An opinion)

Burke loves to have toughness on his team, you bet your ass he makes that deal in a heartbeat unless he is priding himself too much on the Kessel trade.

Exactly. Wilson wasn't a fan of those type of players (Perry, Getzlaf) but Carlyle sure is.

How many times is Anaheim going to be involved in a Lupul trade? :lol:

Lupul has this much value after his first big season?

I'd like to see him do it again before I think his value is anywhere close to the value of Getzlaf, Perry or even Kessel.

Anaheim would be foolish to give up two absolutely beastly cornerstone players in Getzlaf and Perry. Bozak is nowhere near ready to take over the #1 line position outright, Toronto kind of did it by committee (Grabovski 51 points, Bozak 47, Connolly 36) and even as individuals I don't think Lupul/ Kessel/ Bozak are ready to dominate games the way that Getzlaf and Perry do.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


Jesus LOVES YOU!
2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Toronto would rob the Ducks with this deal. Lupul was traded for nothing from them. Sure he turned out to have chemistry with Kessel but is no where near the value of Perry or Getzlaf. He just had a good year.

Throw in Kadri and Gardiner to even up the deal.

IMO if Lupul hadn't had such major health concerns he would be seen as one of the NHL's best well rounded wingers. The only thing that has held him back has been the injuries. Before this season his last healthy season was 2007 with Philadelphia which was going even better then his current season until his own teammate Derian Hatcher destroyed him. Struggled through injures the next two season never looked the same then went to the Ducks where his back flared up and led to those freakish career threatening setbacks.

Durability is the only reason I would see Lupul's value taking a hit. If I was Anaheim I wouldn't take the risk at the expense of both Getzlaf and Perry but his value may be higher then most people think with his back issues appearing to be in the rear view mirror.

Carlyle couldn't get Getzlaf and Perry going in Anaheim, so what makes you think he could do it in Toronto?
