Yes, there is risk in this signing; but if it works out as it has been, it will be a great signing and will be a great player with Kessel for many years.
He gets to play 1st line on the Leafs something he is not guaranteed on many other teams. Money is good, something he would get elsewhere to is my guess. I am a bit skeptical about the term, would have hoped for 3 years but I am ok with the deal. It is not only that he have talent he is a hard worker to with leadership qualities, something we dont have much of currently.
