Trade Kessel?
 
Simple question. Should Kessel be traded?

I personally think he should, but I know many people here won't agree. He's not a Randy Carlyle type player and will never fit into a physical defensive system. He's soft as **** and completely heartless if not completely invisible on many nights.

With his contract up at the end of next season, he'll probably be asking for a raise, somewhere in the $7 million range. He's not worth that kind of money and we should be able to get some pretty decent return on him. If we don't trade Kessel, I feel that he'll likely walk at the end of next season, as I'm sure the scrutiny from the media and fans (because of the trade that brought him here AND his play of late) will eventually take their toll on him.

Penalty Kill Icing* 03-07-2013 09:12 PM

Yes.

I am not willing to pay him 7+ million on his next contract.

jimmycarter 03-07-2013 09:14 PM

yes, he plays scared.

Leafidelity 03-07-2013 09:14 PM

What did I say, one loss and we're trading the roster. :laugh:

I bet OP has been salivating over a loss and posting this thread for weeks.

7even 03-07-2013 09:15 PM

What do you think people are going to say after that game? :dunce:

Phion Keneuf 03-07-2013 09:15 PM

Yes, Phaneuf too

S2S 03-07-2013 09:15 PM

Yes. But not for peanuts. Offer me a deal and we will talk. Trade him for a package involving a young centre and work from there.

Honestly if not then trade him to Pittsburgh. I want to see him flourish with Crosby or Malkin. Trade him for Beau Bennett, Olli Maata and a first.

Patty Lee 03-07-2013 09:15 PM

where were you and all your brilliant threads last night...

Some people have seen what Kessel is and have been saying this for a few years. This is not a knee jerk reaction.

Count Von Grabo* 03-07-2013 09:17 PM

depends who for.

garyjones93 03-07-2013 09:17 PM

Then with no kessel teams put their shutdown lines against kadri, which will see less production. Then trade kadri threads pop up.

HarrisonFord 03-07-2013 09:17 PM

I gotta say, OP has a mean Kessel obsession.

One player who is second in team scoring on a team sitting in 6th in the NHL.

...who has more points than anyone on the Bruins.

:dunce:

silentprotector 03-07-2013 09:18 PM

voted yes! But if we sign Perry then we dont need to trade phil. Kessel would still be a 35-40 goal scorer as a secondary threat

The guy just played his worst game possibly in his time in a Leafs uniform, and you're telling me this isn't a reaction thread? Bull ****.

Seriously. What is this question?
Obviously I'd trade Kessel for Malkin. But I wouldn't trade Kessel for Carter for example.

You just described the definition of a knee-jerk reaction.

ECanuck 03-07-2013 09:18 PM

Here we go again. :laugh:

You can read through my 3,000+ post history and see that I've always had a dislike for Kessel if you wish. :laugh:

Add Grabo to the title and it would be perfect.

Being a bit impulsive here aren't we?
