But at this point, I cannot see any REAL offers coming in for Phil since many teams are still trying to find their identities.

Lets say we do move Phil Kessel... How many years do you think it would take us to find a legitimate 30 goal scorer that could be here for the next 10 years and produce at the same rate? No he's not a franchise player, but he's a fantastic compliment that any contending team needs to be a real threat.

Unless the return is a no brainer, Phil Kessel isn't going anywhere.
Either way, thank you for the insight about Perry/Getzlaf.

I figured the unlikelihood of their acquisition would be common knowledge but it seems people still dream
