8m for Phil Kessel? Wtf?

One dimensional wingers who have won nothing and can't carry a team should not be paid 8x8. Period.
Well first of all I disagree with your assessment of him but besides that, the Leafs don't really have a choice. Much like many other teams like the Pens with Letang or (soon) the Rangers with Lundqvist don't have a choice. Similarly to them, the Leafs can't replace Kessel and therefore will give him what he wants and hope for a little decency from his side. It's that simple.
