Heatley is very one-dimensional and has always been.

but 2 comon arguements here that leafs will not do well because they traded 2 first rounders for kessel so that deal was a bust. im disputing saying its way to early to tell. and second is you have to build through the draft. let me know when washington edmonton and NYI win the cup. they have some great draft picks but i doubt we will see those teams win it anytime soon.

Right now I can't see the difference at all. You're overrating Heatley in an attempt to knock Kessel.

Kessel is 22 and still growing his game. Heatley is in his prime. Not to mention they play completely different games. You can't even compare the two, at all.

Yep, right.

Kessel isn't overpaid and hardly any more inconsistent than other players around the League. Kadri's a ppg+ player in the AHL as a 20 year old but somehow he's a bust? I don't think a 20 goal scorer is a marginal 3rd line player; and once the troll couldn't think of anything more to say he starts saying players are overhyped?

Not even a good troll job.

so Leaf fans if we are to take Dreger at his word and he is one of most connected guys in the business do you expect Kadri and/or our 2012 1st to be on the block? I think it's a damn good possibilty.
Dreger is a lightweight compared to MacKenzie or Kypreos in reporting Trades that turn out to be accurate. Dreger might have a better record than Eklund.

How's Benoit Pouliot doing? Or Hickey? How about Turris? Cam Barker is sure tearing up the league. So are JVR and Ladd. And Wheeler, the incarnation of Cam Neely for sure. And how awesome is Zherdev? Just a step below Ovechkin for sure. Horton's sniping the light outs too. Just unstoppable. And what can I say about Svitov and Chistov. Just unbelievable.

Great lottery picks eh?

How is Kessel, a player on pace for 56 points, not overpaid at $5.4 ($6.0 in salary)?

And Kessel is 7 years younger.

Kessel has more goals with AHl talent this season than Heatley does with superstars.

I was talking about right now and all your arguments about Heatley were years ago.

05-06' had everyone's stats inflated BTW.

Heatley has always played with superstars in those 3 cities.

Kessel is not a good hockey player. Neither is Heatley really. They're both lazy at times and suspect defensively. The difference is Kessel is one of, if not, the biggest ***** in the league -- he will not hit, take a hit or go into the corners. Heatley is slightly more willing to do this.

I'd like to see that Beauchemin comment run by some Ducks fans so they can confirm how stupid it is. The rest most likely follows suit.

HAHA...the bruins will gladly take another lottery pick from you...want savard

And there is no way burke can spin the crap he has into a #1 C,LW and G...while not giving up the assets he has (phil kessel trade 2.0)

leafs WILL NOT be a playoff contender next year, pipe dream

burkie needs to do a real build, i honestly feel bad for leafs fans that he's been holding out this long and screwing over the fanbase because now they hafta wait even longer. he should cut his loses.

Something tells me that being the second cousin of the Assistant G.M. probably lets him have some inside scoop over Mckenzie and Kypreos.

Also... can't tell if you're a troll or not....

You claimed that Kadri was faking an injury because he'd rather play for Montreal last week.

You're a joke.

Ok then.

Kessel is 23 and has yet to break 60 points.

Heatley put up 89 as a 22 year old.

Is that more fair?
