Do you think Kessel will stay after this season or leave?

He did score 36 goals in 70 games, but he was unhappy under CJ as he played less than 17 minutes a game.

Julien, in turn, was unhappy about his defensive responsibilities/awareness.

Exactly. To be brutally honest, I don't see this team being a contendor in the bear future..if he wants to win hell go to another team and you can't blame him. Once a contract is up, the player in question doesn't owe the team anything

I can ask you what you have to backup the idea Kessel will stay?
The fact that he agreed to the trade here in the first place, the fact that he has never suggested leaving Toronto?
The fact that most free agents (in particular Maple Leaf players) re-sign long before hitting free agency? Now your turn, one solid fact pointing to Kessel leaving, just one.

Your not correct at all. That quote was about him and his line mates, nothing else. Nothing even close to what you are insinuating it does.
Weird how adding context changes quotes eh?

So the Kessel situation (or lack thereof) is similar to the Sundin situation?
