    I know Kessel and Burke got along pretty well, but I don't know if I see him leaving.

Personally I think the Leafs need to shop Kessel either at the deadline or at the draft. If the Leafs so no signs of improvement before Kessel's contracts up he'll bolt when he hits UFA. He takes a lot of crap in Toronto and has enormous amounts of pressure on him because of the return Boston got. I'm sure he'd love to rid himself of this mess and start fresh somewhere else where he doesn't have to be "the man"
    That is what I was saying if the Leafs did not have Kessel the last 2 years just how bad would they have been. We could be calling them the Oilers now with back to back 1st overall picks.

    As a Leafs fan, I would trade Kessel in a heart beat for back to back 1st overall picks...bring on the rebuild

    Yeah but could you imagien them with Tyler Seguin and Dougie Hamilton????

    Totally outmatched playing on arguably the worst NHL team over the past decade though. Put him on the 3rd or 4th line on any good team, east or west, and he'd probably be fine and work his way up to the top 2 by 24 to 26 years old.

    Supposedly this was done because his bonus keeps the Isles over the cap floor. So: why not trade him for Leino?

    There's way better ways of spending money than Leino

    Take it up with ESPN and TSN. They are convinced the Isles only want Nino for his cap hit.

    I'm not doubting the validity but it would be a horrible move for them.


    I'd rather take on Mike Komisarek than Leino at this point and there's even better salary dumps

    Weve made the playoffs 4 times in the last decade. That is far from the worst.

    Trading Nino for Leino might in fact be the worst trade in NHL history

    Nino is in the AHL so obviously he's not here for his cap hit
