That was in the summer of 2009 when Dubinsky and Kessel were both RFAs.
Kessel ended up being traded to Toronto for two first round picks and a second round pick.
At one point it was suggested that for the Rangers to acquire Kessel they would need to come up with a package based around Ryan Callahan and Chris Kreider.
