Phil Kessel/Roberto Luongo Appreciation

I was just thinking, Phil Kessel was #2 in points at his position, #6 overall. He is one of the best players offensively in the league. When people put down Toronto for the Kessel trade, they fail to realize that we got one of the best (Probably top ten) forwards in the league. It's not a one sided trade like the Phaneuf trade, when Toronto got it's captain and a decent prospect for a bunch of scraps. We may have overpaid a bit, but Kessel is an excellent piece. If it weren't for his defensive liabilities he'd be over the top. But remember when Reimer joined the team and the team played amazing, in the second half of 2010/11? That's the change a good goaltender makes. That season Reiminister registered a .921 save percentage, while Roberto Luongo posted a .928 save percentage that season, and averages a .919 save percentage over his twelve year NHL career. What could Toronto accomplish with elite goaltending? This guy is being traded, his value is at an all time low, Burke really needs to get this trade going. Defence was the problem last semester.

Does this make any sense?

Don't see the comparison between the appreciation of Lu and Kessel! Try again please.

basically what your saying is that good goaltending for the leafs will make Phil Kessel look even better and justify his trade a bit more even though we would have still relatively lost the trade

This title sucks. I seen "Phil Kessel --- Appreciation" and got worried that he was traded.

Phil Kessel doesn't get the love that he deserves. For someone to finish in the top 10 of scoring, he is rarely mentioned in the same sentence as forwards like Neal, Tavares and Henrik Sedin. Sure he doesn't have the defensive aspect of his game, but that's not what the Leafs need him to do.

You'd know if Kessel got traded, everything would crash.

Yeah you're right. Didn't it crash when we signed McClement?
