Probably not.

Years 7-8 is more likely. We'll see though, could be fine. I think he'll be 34 when it ends? He may not be one the decline yet.

Happy to see Kessel is sticking around. Heck of a player and the Leafs' offensive catalyst for sure.

An 8 million dollar cap hit might be a little high right now, but not that bad. Probably about (or a little less than) what he would've gotten in free agency so it's probably fair without the hometown discount at this point in time.

Anyway though, it's good to have this done. Would've hated to see the Leafs lose Kessel for nothing.
