Yup.

Not a fan of the player, never liked him.

But he does the hardest thing to do in hockey very well.... he score's goals.

Straight up, you make the trade, and then you send him to a therapist so he stops acting like a timid little child all the time.

Yup, it's a no brainer. Liferleafer will be here soon to tell us it won't happen.

Another thing of note, something that Friedman mentioned in his 30 thoughts, apparently Kessel never pays any attention to the media and doesn't care about any outside pressure. So in that regard he's the perfect player for a market like Toronto or Vancouver. That can't be underestimated and is likely another reason he scored so well in the playoffs so early in his career.

Alas, I have no way to judge whether or not it is likely to happen.

Here's hoping!
