Will be some drama to come...thanks for pointing this out beauchamp
It would be in Leafs best interest if in the new CBA the they increased the years of service/age until UFA status and that would make Kessel a RFA and not an UFA at end of this contract.

Then an Offer Sheet would be the only way to lose his services, and it would not be free as it would be draft picks compensation worst case scenario.
