You might have to only make the playoffs, but one guy doesn't take a team to the playoffs. And if you watched their defence and goaltending it definitely wasn't Kessel's fault they didn't make it. And if you were to ask me, for the 2010 and 2011 seasons, Kessel would have been an upgrade over Seguin. For any year moving forward, I think it'll be the other way.
And Seguin's point totals last season bested Kessel's previous career-highs... In his sophomore year. And Kessel playing in the league for five.
I still like Phil. I liked having him on the team and I was pissed when he was dealt for picks. And no doubt about it, he had a great year last season. That doesn't make me regret for ONE SECOND, the big, beautiful haul we got from Burkie for the guy. The Maple Leafs have helped set up the Bruins core for years to come AND contributed to a Stanley Cup here... All while failing to make the playoffs once in that time. I couldn't be happier.
