Leafs GM Dave Nonis met with Kessel last week and the winger told him he wanted to commit long term. Once he said that, Nonis got to work

Absolutely beautiful. So good.

Top Caphits 14-15

1. Ovechkin 9.6
2. Malkin 9.5
3. Crosby 8.7
4. Perry 8.6
5. Giroux 8.3
6. Getzlaf 8.3
7. Staal 8.3
8. Kessel 8.0
9. Weber 7.9* (10.4 AAV for first 10yrs of contract)
10. Nash 7.8
11. Suter 7.5* (9.4 AAV for first 10yrs of contract)
12. Parise 7.5* (9.4 AAV for first 10yrs of contract)

Kessel just squeaks into the top-10 next year as of right now, and only because of the cheater contracts to weber, suter, and parise.

Key UFA this offseason that will sign before Kessel's extension kicks in include:

Lundqvist
Gaborik
Thornton
Vanek
Sedin
Sedin
Phaneuf

and key UFA after next season include:

Toews
Kane
Spezza


So kessel won't even be top-10 for long.

He'll be way down the list by the end of his deal, when he's at the ripe old age of 34.
Good post Zeke! Hes clearly worth his contract
