I do but I'll wait to see how I feel about it until after the deal is made and after probably another 3-4 years as well.
Kessel going away for a guy who doesn't re-sign here, I'll be ticked off.
Kessel bringing a guy back that is similar in upside but tougher and more of what I expect a "Bruin" to be - I'll be okay with it.
I was once ridiculed because I posted here that I doubt that Samsonov would ever be more than a 70-75 point guy - well he scored 70 once & 75 once.
Not tooting my own horn because that may be the only thing that I've got right over the years, but with Kessel I get the same feeling.
He has the skill to do more, but IMO if he's going to top out at 30-33 goals and 70 points - while providing little defensive support and no physicality - then I think we could find someone else for the money that he'll be eventually paid that can be more well rounded.
