I took you off ignore to see if you had anything new to offer, but I see that you do not.
Before I place you back onto ignore, I will say this...
Would I rather have Kessel on RW instead of Ryder? Of course!
But I refuse to complain endlessly about circumstances completely out of my control.
Let it go already!
Talking about one player being the deciding factor in a team winning the cup, indicates your hockey knowledge is very limited.
Chicago was able to win the cup last year, and last time I checked, Kessel was not a part of their lineup. Matter of fact, every team that managed to qualify for the playoffs, managed to do so, without Kessel.
When a team wins the cup, every player has their name engraved on it, not just the team's best player. Why is that? Because it takes an entire team, working together, to win.
In a salary cap NHL, tough decisions have to be made.
When Joe Thornton was traded, it allowed the bruins to sign Savard & Chara.
The Kessel trade allowed Boston to add Horton & Seguin.
Teams move on, and as fans, we have to as well.
At some point, you are going to have to ask yourself; are you a Bruin fan, or are you a Kessel fan?
