Then you add the fact that Kessel was on the block but you didn't hear anything from Canadian media about specific teams involved, unlike Phaneuf where you more or less had a play by play of the negotiations with Detroit. Lou basically made sure the Schneider trade remained under wraps even though the deal was reached the night before.
The hold up, I'm guessing was that Toronto was hoping for this year's first. So if the Devils are picking below 10 and finish up the season strong, you might see s deadline day deal. Otherwise it would be 2016 hopefully lottery protected.
Or an Isles esque trade for Patrick Sharp.
