Krazy Kessel Konspiracy Konjecture

I think like most, I was completely baffled by the Kessel move to center.  So it got me thinking...

What if: One day, old pals Brian and Ron are sitting around their morning coffee....

Brian: "Ronnie, what do you need to make this team better?"
Ron: "Some first line talent would be nice."
B: "I hear you, but I've called everyone and no one is offering up first line centers.  And really, I like how our wing depth is shaping up."
R: "Well, hell.  I dunno.  My magic line juggler can only do so much!"
B: "Actually Ronnie, theres one thing we haven't tried..."

And at this point, the light bulb over Ron's head illuminates.  A chorus of angels sing in heavenly harmony.  The mullet of Al Iafrate appears on every man...the mustache of Wendel Clark on every woman.

R: "Dangnabit, Bri-Bri.  Think you can get me a top winger?"
B: "Let me hit those phones!"

Burke pops in a fat chew and walks off....

So, what I'm trying to say is: What if Brian Burke hasn't been able to find a top center available in a deal, but has perhaps landed on a few wing names.  Maybe this is a trial run of sorts to see if Kessel can handle it?  Like I said at the start, just a thought.

Have at thee!
