If I was Kessel I'd want out too, Plus, Kessel wanted to come to the Leafs....Not Nashville.

Kessel has also stated he wants to finish his career with the Leafs. Was kessel a Leaf fan growing up?

Give the man anything he wants to stay with the Leafs.. it's only money that doesn't matter to anyone on these boards. Keep him at all costs, You can't replace Kessel without giving up the farm. Like him or hate him....He is an Elite talent that isn't available very often at his age!!
You have your dates wrong , at that time Krejci signed a deal that avg under 4m for 3 years and PK was offered similar money . Also , Kessel wanted to go to whoever offered the most money , there was no special love for the Leafs .
