Because clearly he sees a lot of potential.
I'm not gonna sit here and try and justify the trade because I didn't like it from day one. Nothing against Kessel, but I just think it was too much to pay, and this was before we knew where the picks would be.....With that said, we got a great young player and there is no denying Kessel's offensive ability, and at 22 years old-potential.
This thread is about Kovalchuk, so trolls can go derail another thread with Kessel bashing.
