Unless someone can provide me with a realistic plan of how you would build a team around Phil Kessel that does not involve:
Banking on the Hope/Wish/Prayer that a Quality UFA will sign here in the off-season
Mortgaging the Future via Assets traded to help Phil Kessel realize his true potential
Banking on Mid-Level prospects to over-achieve make significant contributions to NHL club
I'm all ears ...
You are correct sir!
We need to stop worrying about trying to build a team around a player who is not a piece to build around.....to do so we need a big mean tough winger who can skate and score and a big mean center who can pass the puck like Crosby....or Crosby himself.....otherwise we are wasting time.
