Kessel fits better into Tortorellas style of coaching, and
can be relied upon
. He doesn't have quite the gamebreaker ability that Gaborik has, but i'd still make that trade easy. Also opens up another 2 million in cap hit for us.
Really? Kessel wore out his welcome in Boston fairly quickly. He has had issues in Toronto already.
That's an article reposted from an ESPN article (I couldn't find the original).
This guy doesn't fit in with the Rangers. And i still believe Gaborik has been struggling with injuries most of this year.
