Forget his face. I think it is a Samson thing - the thinner Kessel's hair gets, the lower his goal production falls. Either get the guy some implants or a membership at Hair Club before it is too late!!!

No worries. I did google it, looks much the same as last year. 79's facts have been a little off today.

You would honestly trade Kessel for a mid/late first?

I'd certainly want more than that if he is traded.

I do not believe u can get anything higher than that for him. mid to late 1st and decent prospect who may or may not turn out.

I didnt say fat, I said out of shape. That one pic I posted above is Kessel in good shape. The rest of them are the way he usually looks.

Great quote from Ken Hitchcock describing rookie sensation Vladimir Tarasenko:

"His ability to play the game properly is really impressive. He doesn't cheat the game, he's a hard-working, sincere kid. He's a very, very sound kid that you can put on the ice and trust."

Sounds like the anti-Kessel.

Then thank the heavens you're not our GM. That deal would make the Rask one look like an absolute steak for us.

Right but goals are not everything. His 200 foot game is not there. He checks out against physical teams. For me he is constantly out of shape, as illustrated above with that pic.

I hope Kessel isn't going to go all Scott Gomez on us. It's starting to get a bit worrisome.

There is nothing realistic about trading Kessel for a late first.

It's about as realistic as your out of shape crap or Krejci apparently saying Kessel quits.

Read it correctly..is that possible? I said mid to late first. Thankfully your not the GM. Keep on trolling.

Learn how to google images. U seem to not know how?

Maybe, but goals count for something. I'd be looking to add a guy to Kessel's line that can make up for his defensive shortcomings, not say "**** it all" and throw away his game-breaking offensive play because he's not Joe Sakic.
