I do think the world of Kessel and hope we find some way to get him tho

Dont get me wrong...if someone asked me who would you want on the Rangers in the lineup this year I would say no doubt Ov. but im talking in the long run...i think Kessel will be a better team player, a go to guy. He gives 110 percent and is always trying to make something happen on the ice. He still has 2 years before his draft and in those 2 years hes only going to get better and better.
