Kessel isnt a guy you build around. Hes an elite goal scorer, burner, and average defensively, but he simply isnt a "franchise" type player, IMO. He hasn't made the Leafs better since his time there, despite his scoring totals last year. This has been my opinion and likely will remain my opinion.

On the other hand though, I'm not sure Subban will be either.

Everything combined, factoring in what Kessel will be making after he re signs, Im going with Subban. I tend to value top pairing D men who can shut down the oppositions 1st line AND put up 40 points very highly.

Can't even accuse me of being biased either, Subban is probably hated more around Boston than Kessel `
