If the cap goes up as it should, and Kessel reaches 40 goals at age 28 to 30 , then the Leafs got their value for him.
There are only 7 players in the league who have outpointed him over the past 3 seasons.
He basically accepted market value, which is exactly what he did on his previous contract (and exactly what I figured he'd do). I had him at $7.5 until some of this offseason's stupidity.
Bear in mind he's acheived that with Bozak as his centre.
