He plays in front of two defenders and between two wingers.

He'd be a defensively sound presence (last year's Selke winner) between Lupul and Kessel, who would bring some grit to the line, as well as ~75 points.

He scored 40+ goals once, I don't think he'll consistently do that. He's a great player though, would definitely be the Leafs' #1 center by default.

If the asking price for Luongo is Grabo, Franson and a conditional 1st round pick...what do you think they'll want for Kesler?

No thanks. Move along.

I know that. I never said consistent 40-goal scorer.

Scored 22 last year...Gonna be rehabbing a torn labrum for 6 months...the 40 goal season was the exception rather than the norm. He's never scored 30 beyond that 1 41 goal season (where his shooting % was like 5% higher than his career norm

Maybe the Canadian diving team is practicing in Toronto in preparation for the Olympics?

If Grabo is in deal in my eyes, we should get Kesler in return as well as LU....i read FLA is out and cant afford Lu's contract...I dont think FLA was even in this to start, the only reason they have been mentioned is cause Lu's wife lives there. If you look back on my past posts i called the staal trade to caroline a week before the draft, before any rumor started....Im starting to get really excited bout hearing Lu deal is basically done...but I want to know if this is true or this is speculation or nothing at all

Asking price isnt final price...I think Gillis only has Toronto as an option honestly no other team is in mix...FLA no way possible they are one of the most poor teams in the league and you think they can afford Lu's contract...I could see Toronto offering cash into deal if it included Kesler.....if you think grabo and franson n pick is just for Luongo I dont think you have the whole story right

Kesler would be a great fit alongside Kessel and Lupul. We need a Selke caliber forward in the middle along with Kessel.

Lupul - Kesler - Kessel
JVR - Grabovski - Kulemin

Respectable top 6 right there.

I really don't mind kesler. Yeah he dives, but he's a pest which is awesome. Since i'm hearing he is a natural center, he might be good for the 1st line.

Keep On topic please.

Maybe Luongo is playing hard ball to get them to lower the price for the leafs.

Id be shocked if Gardiner doesnt have to be included in a deal for Kesler.

not only is that respectable, but that has the potential to be top5/10 in the league

if Kule goes back to his 30 goal self we can potentially have ALL of our top 6 inputting 30ish goals

I think you guys are a little over sensitive about the American/Canadian content on a hockey team. One only has to look at past champions to see that the majority of the team is made up of Canadians. This may very well change as time goes on and the game becomes all that bigger in the US. As it stands right now we need more Canadian players on this team. A good mix of Canadian and American players with some Euro's. We need a little of everything but grit comes from Cdn players. This is not a bash against American players, so don't take it as that.

As a side note. Having Kessler as our number one centre would be a complete disaster. He had one really good playoff series and has been relatively quiet and injured in most of the others.
