Now, We need to build a cast around that core.
Kessel is a great complimentary piece to a established core
- and he is young enough to build with.
It sucks to say, but we really do need a bright new face ; and it seems that the draft is the best way to do so. I will cheer this team to the very last game, but everyone knows the direction we are going in.
No, ideally Kessel is the second fiddle to a Tavares level player. That's about it.
He's more elite than anything else in the system, and the kind of player we would be lucky to see Kadri, Frattin, Gardiner or Rielly turn into, and he's not much older than any of them.
Sometimes, I really wonder about the fanbase when people talk about a "bright new face" as if they literally just objected to Phil Kessel's face.
