8x8 is a bit of an overpayment, but he'd easily fetch that on the open market.

So then it's not overpayment, it's market value

Sounds like we'll know tonight (although it sounds all but confirmed now)

TOR first wanted to determine, $ aside, how eager Kessel was to be a Leaf. If he did, sense was $ would sort itself out quickly. Stay tuned.

He's a PPG+ player and a 4 (would have been 5) time 30+ goal scorer and is only 25. With the cap going up next year, one can expect him to get around 7.8-8.5m per season.

Terrible? Cmon...Nash has a cap hit of $7.8m, Parise and Gaborik at $7.5, Semin's at $7.0m. And Kessel's pretty much established himself as a terrific playmaker and goalscorer.. At $8m you could argue he's overpaid by about $500k, but it's not close to being a terrible cap hit.

I don't get why people say it's an overpayment.

The guy produces points. Last two years in the Top Ten for NHL scoring.

Kessel doesn't get my respect. It's ridiculous.

Good job for the Leafs. Hope they can resign Phaneuf too.

Great in playoffs for Leafs.

Get it done.
He's soft, still bad defensively (even though he has improved), and plays wing.

Heck of a point producer, just not a guy I'd want as my franchise guy.

We've got no one else to spend the money on, so who cares?

He is soft and average defensively.

But he's one of the most prolific goal scorers in the world.

So... that gets him $8M+.

You're out to lunch. I don't like the Leafs but Kessel is worth anything the Leafs give him under 9 mill. Bad defensively? No, definitely not. If by "soft" you mean he doesn't throw a ton of hits, then sure, I guess. Is that a bad thing? He definitely doesn't stand down from conflicts (unless your name is John Scott).

Bottom line is he is a young elite producer, both goal scoring and passing.

If he wasn't a Leaf, people wouldn't even debate that he's worth 8+ over 8.

The Leafs have that effect on people.

I would hate to see your thoughts on the Semin contract then.

My favorite part is the guy in the front throwing in a lil "Soulja boy tell em'" at the end.

8 makes sense when you look at what inferior players like Rick Nash got.

I realize that, which is why the Leafs are paying him. He's their franchise guy. They paid a hefty price to trade for him so it's in their best interest to pay him too.

They're obviously a better team with him than out him, but he's just not a guy I'd like to build my team around. Not my problem though

Not really. It's still less than players like Staal, Getzlaf and Perry, who although are better than Kessel, it's only by a small margin IMO

Phil Kessel will just continue to put up the points and goals while people continue to talk crap about him.
