While I can imagine that NJ pick might not be moving, Kempny's currently worth more than a 2nd, less than a 1st.
Kempny tied for 38th among LHD in even strength points this season: <a href="http://www.nhl.com/stats/skaters?reportType=season&seasonFrom=20192020&seasonTo=20192020&gameType=2&position=D&shootsCatches=L&filter=gamesPlayed,gte,1&sort=evPoints&page=0&pageSize=100" rel="nofollow noreferrer noopener" target="_blank">http://www.nhl.com/stats/skaters?reportType=season&seasonFrom=20192020&seasonTo=20192020&gameType=2&position=D&shootsCatches=L&filter=gamesPlayed,gte,1&sort=evPoints&page=0&pageSize=100</a>
He tied with Chychrun, Giordano, Brodie, and Morrissey. Try getting any of them, at a $2.5M cap hit, for a 3rd round pick. Good luck.
He was also 7th in plus/minus, although I know that's out of style.
My thought process here is Kempny for an almost-1st rounder, if Nashville wants defensive depth to win right now, Afanasyev for Johansen and a 4th if they want a solid LHD prospect who will do better in NSH than WSH, and then Harpur or some other contract moving back to keep Nashville below the limit. Actually prefer someone at a different position, if that's an option, or really prefer no one.</div></div>
Did you watch him play this year? I don't think he ever got to 100% from the injury in 2018-19, but he was still nowhere near his 2018 self. He was so bad that he got healthy scratched at the end of the playoffs. A big part of why we traded for Dillon is because Kempny was no longer playing like a top four defenseman. He's worth nowhere close to a first round pick. He's worth a third, maybe.
