Trade him for what? A 1st, and a prospect that might make the NHL?
The stupidity of some posters on here (not going to name any names). I don't get it.
Phil Kessel is a guy we NEED to keep to be successful. When we find a number 1 center to play with him and Lupul/JVR, (which hey, could be Nazem Kadri) Kessel is going to light the league up.
Kessel isn't a #1 player.... he is more of a 1B... he needs someone to help him out a little bit. Get him the puck for good looks. I like Tyler Bozak, but he isn't that guy.
We trade Phil Kessel for a #1 C, then who is that #1 C going to pass the puck to? It would be a Mats Sundin situation all over again.
We trade him for Bobby Ryan? We have a power forward. Which we have in JVR and Lupul, and now, no sniper what so ever.
I understand Kessel is having a rough season, I get it, and no one is happy about it. People have to stop expecting Kessel to be a hard nosed player though. He isn't and never will be.
Everyone just needs to lay off this guy.
