Seeing Kessel get 50 goals would be great, however if he can get at least 40 I would be ok with that.

No he will not score 50 goals.....

I'm not a fan of his over all game but I 'm a fan of his skill set. You play him tough and he disappears.....he will see a lot more of that in the future.

As for the BS of a better center goes.....he loves his current centerman .....best friends in fact. They have good chemistry and played effectively. The lost of Lupul and new coach hurt his changes of even a better year last year. Bozak will end up as his center again this year in the end, or it could be interesting and his points may fall way off.

You take Kessel and stuff his pudgy frame with Grabo's heart and soul. There are your 50 goals. Actually, make that 100 goals. Does he get two Rocket trophies for that? Anyways, this lazy bum could potentially be an elite player if he puts in as much work as Grabo does day in day out. He has the talent, no doubt, but no where near the heart and soul as Grabo who could be putting up 100+ points if he had malkin/giroux's ability.

Taking Grabo's recklessness and determination would land Kessel on the IR before the season's done. Just imagine, though, if Kessel had the luxury to play against the scrubs Grabo does on a nightly basis. He'd be undressing defensemen left and right.

The NHL has very few "lazy bum" top 10 point getters.

have never looked up his stats but seems like he doesn't get enough cheap goals on the powerplay. Unless he figures out how to pad his stats with cheap powerplay goals he'll never hit 50 imo

Grabs doesnt play against scrubs and who of his linemates has he suicide passed to etc? Actually i dont think anyone has been injured while playing with him on a shift. The only person who looks like they will end up on ir is himself! Outside of that really, he has fantastic corsi etc etc etc, most complete player on the leafs in th purest sense.

Thats why Grabs should play with Kessel.

At no point did he say Grabo is helping others get hurt, he said that Grabo is reckless himself so HE may get hurt. Then implied that if Kessel were on the 2nd line he would play much better (obvious statement) or that if he played LIKE Grabo, he would be on the IR.

Statistically? Maybe. Theoretically? Absolutely.

If kessel had an Adam Oates centering him, he could score 60.
