I agree with this.
Also my first thoughts are, it sounds like people are trying to make a trade just for sake of making a trade. You want letang, but he doesn't really want anything you're willing to give. Green for Kesler seems like a lateral move at best. If I had to make a hypothetical trade scenario I would do:
Letang & Granlund
Lucic & Atkinson
His team could use more Hits from his FWDs and you need an top tier D on the back end.
