Even funnier when you know Bozak actually lives in Kessel's condo.

Offer him 8x8 before the season starts. If you can't negotiate from there or if he doesn't want to sign it you know you gotta trade him.

Good. For the Leafs sake, they need to keep their best players.

There will be negotiation both ways, but 8X8 will get it done. It's fair for both sides, IMO.

I'm sure Kessel will want more and I'm sure the Leafs will want him cheaper, but both sides need one another. Kessel knows he can only et the extra year from Toronto, and Toronto's media/ownership/fanbase will throw a hissy fit if he leaves via free agency.

Leave kessel alone!

He's one of the top snipers in the league. Hope the leafs lock him up, because if not, the leafs are going to be just as bad as they were a few years ago. Drop off a bank truck outside of his house.

RHN, Duchene getting 6 mil. Long-term, If I was Kessel I'd be looking for 8 mil per year at least for 6+ years.

Oh he surely is. Most people seem to think 8x8 is about what gets it done.

To show loyalty to the team that he's currently playing for or if he actually likes the city. This happens every year that players go UFA and get over paid. It's not him making 1 million for the extra year, its some crazy GM offering him some crazy contract. If Kessel went UFA there would be a lineup of teams trying to outbid each other regardless of what us "experts" on this message board think.

$8.1M per (makes sense) for 8 years. He's getting the max length. Fair for both sides.

I was thinking $8.1 for kessel, just like crosby got $8.7 to match his jersey number!

He fits in right under Getzlaf and Perry's numbers. Anywhere in the 7.8-8.2 range is good for me over the max term. He is still a young man too. Not much risk in that contract.

Kessel @ 8x8? Have you all gone insane. 5 years @ 6m max or let him walk.

8m for Phil Kessel? Wtf?

One dimensional wingers who have won nothing and can't carry a team should not be paid 8x8. Period.

Except for the fact that Kessel is closer in value to guys like Perry, Getzlaf, Parise and Giroux than Semin...he'd get 8+ on the open market all day long.

We should fire Nonis and hire you to be GM of the Leafs.

Well first of all I disagree with your assessment of him but besides that, the Leafs don't really have a choice. Much like many other teams like the Pens with Letang or (soon) the Rangers with Lundqvist don't have a choice. Similarly to them, the Leafs can't replace Kessel and therefore will give him what he wants and hope for a little decency from his side. It's that simple.
