If he goes there, they'll lock him up. David Poile has a good relationship with Kessel (USA Hockey).
Except Phil Kessel wasn't going to sign in Nashville and stopped the trade there when Boston was looking to move him. Relationship or not, he signed in Toronto for the money not the relationships and good feelings.

He will do the same in a year and a half. Everything about the history of Phil Kessel from his ELC contract to his RFA contract sugggest the money is the main factor. It always will be.
