No thanks.

Kessel is making $5m+ now and will be looking for a raise in 1 and 1/2 seasons.
No interest in making Kessel, the NYI highest paid player.

I'm not sure if the Toronto press is accurate with the info, that he'll seek $7m-$8m in 2014, but that's a lot for a player who acts more like a complimentary scorer, then the franchise player his salary says he should be.
