After reading the article it sure seems like the Bruins are more than willing to lose Kessel.

I wonder why.

They simply can't afford him. Look at the guys numbers, draft position, etc. He's going to be using the Vanek contract as a template for what he expects.

A bit about Burke's opinion on Kassian, sorry if this has already been seen and posted.

"Brian Burke just chuckled when asked about Zack Kassian.

"He's big, tough, skilled, hostile and belligerent. Naw, I don't like him," said Burke with tongue firmly tucked in cheek. "Why would I want a player like that?"

Indeed, if there's a player in this Friday's NHL entry draft who would appear to be exactly the kind of athlete Burke is looking for as he rebuilds the Maple Leafs, it would be Kassian, the nasty piece of business who patrolled the wing for ex-Leaf Ken McRae's Peterborough Petes this past season.

Even better, Kassian is a pug with a scorer's touch, a personality and a quick wit. He said he hasn't bothered to take boxing lessons or instruction in martial arts like many hockey players."
