There are murmurs going around he might be. While this is all conjecture I do believe the rumors have some legs. Kessel will be going on five years on a team of perpetual failure and may decide to move on. Toronto is not in any position to meaningfully compete until they shore up goaltending and get an actual #1 centre. I could very easily see Nonis opting to do a temporary rebuild and ship out Kessel, Phaneuf and Kulemin for youth, picks and prospects, draft high and build a new core over the next three years. Hard to say if Kessel wants to wait that long. And they absolutely cannot lose him for nothing. The media circus would be a disaster.
