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!!

The memory goes with age...

As mentioned, Krejci signed for 3.5, 3.75 and 4.

Lucic was on his ELC.

He was signed to a 3-year extension for 4, 4 and 4.25 about 3 weeks after Kessel was traded.

$5M? No...
