    always liked kessel & thought he got a raw deal here.....but between julien & kessel specially julien, im thinking PC,s hands were tied & he was lucky he got what he did.....to score anything with julien as a coach you have to have a very special talent & you best make sure your defensive assignments are covered or its bye-bye!

    I was against PC dealing Kessel. He is gone and I'm sure he will close in on 50 one year.

    How many times do you idiot kessel lovers need to be reminded? KESSEL DIDNT WANT TO PLAY HERE. HE WANTED OUT OF BOSTON!!! Stop blaming chiarelli for what happened with kessel. Julien didnt like kessel. kessel didnt like julien. Kessel didnt like the system in boston and wanted out of here. There is was nothing management could do except get rid of julien. That was never gonna happen with the sucess juliens system had in 08-09

    Kessel obviously prefers cash over having a chance to win.We will see how much he likes not being in the playoffs for a few years.I guess he enjoys being the best player on a bad team.

    look on the bright side he's on a team that isn't in the play-offs and now we are in the play-offs and have a high draft pick it's a win-win

    Too bad he didn't want to play in Boston. We could have used his skill.

    But he wanted to leave Boston, and that was the best deal PC could get.

    Get over it.

    Yeah Kessel did not want to play in Boston.  Otherwise he would have accepted the offer.  At the same time when the game is on the line his he really the one that will score the goal.  How many games did Carolina won by one goal including game seven.  All we needed was 1 goal from him at a critical time and he did not produced any.  People are going to say it is because he was injured.  Everyone plays injured during the playoffs!!

    luca, joe thornton played injured in '04 and was crucified by fans and the press for failing to produce in the montreal series. of course, he was playing with broken ribs, and was at 40 percent, but all the idiot B's fans keep reminding us all how Jumbo Joe didn't come through for the B's in playoff time. So playing injured probably isn't wise. It cost him because the B's treated him like dirt near the end. Jerks. Fans were not behind Joe.

    love kessel or hate him, the problem is that Chiarelli never replaced the production.

    add a 30 goal scorer to the lineup and your hosting in round 1.

    poor cap managment is hurting this years team big time!

    The Canes won 2 games by one goal. The Bruins scored a total of 5 goals in their 4 losses that series. Kessel wasn't the only one not scoring in those games.

    to every person on this page that says he didnt want to play here...get a clue... he wanted to get paid 5.2 not 3.5...period...did you ever hear kessel say that?? once? he told chiarelli after he was traded he was sorry it didnt work out...when chiarelli was asked about that he would not respond....  if you trade away the far and away best player on you team what are you going to tell the fans...  its bruins spin...kessel was slotted only he wouldnt play along...simple as that .......stupid!!

    Kessel Will be the Next Brett Hull of this Generation a Player with a Attitude but is a PROLIFIC SCORER!!! A Player who plays by his own tune but in return you will get 40, 50 ,60 Goals out of this Guy. Hull was never an easy guy to get along with especially with Management.  We are so stuck on finding the Quote Most Well Rounded Player who can score 30 and be a Defensive Gem at the same time.  But sometimes you need that Player that specializes in certain areas more than others.. Scoring 40 to 50 Goals is hard to come by and you need to find someway to fit that kind of player in.  The truth was and still is he would have played here if the MONEY was RIGHT !!! Toronto offered more!!!! And the Bruins dont Pay Players. They never gave Ray Bourque what he deserved so why pay any one else.

    Saying Kessel was the best player on last years' team . Now that's stupid ! Highest goal scorer . Yes. Best player ? Ridiculous. Greed over anything else was why Kessel is not with this team. Enough said .

    Let the Leafs have PK and his 30-40 goals . Are they better with him ? NO. I'll take battling for the playoffs and having a top 5 pick the next 2 years. I'm sure most Leaf fans will tell you Kessel has made them an instant Stanley Cup contender.LOL. Top 5 pick here we come .YOOHOO.

    They couldn't fit him under the cap plain and simple. He was asking market rate for someone his age with his stats and the B's didn't have the room.
    What is odd is that Burke didn't plop down an offer sheet on Chiareli's desk. He would have given up his 1st, 2nd, 3rd this year instead of 2 number 1s and a 2.
    If Chiareli had matched the offer it would have created a mess of his salary schedule.
    That said, Kessel is really not in as good shape as most of the Leafs and it shows.
    Let's let this issue go (in spite of the pic)

    stop saying kessell wanted out...he wanted to get paid...and rightfully so...hes in early 20's hes going to score 40 goals a season for the next 10-15 yrs..maybe more with a actual true center..he has blazing speed (new nhl)..creates pentalies and most important what alot of fans are missing he allows the other lines and players to play against lesser players and not against top checking unit particually on the road during home team gets last change...big mistake by chia letting him go..like brian burke said 3 weeks ago..he knows kes has other weak elements to his game but he will get other players to fill those roles....kessell was brought in to score and thats what he does..now by issue with chia is...no matter what the true reason kes is not here doesnt really matter now..but its chia not replacing him with a player even close to him...because not only do we lose 40 goals, bergy wheels krejci etc are getting more attention from opp checking lines thus resulting in more less goals!   with kessel we have home ice in 2 weeks and easily win div

    Re: kessel 30th in only 64 games!

    Kessel is going to score 40 a year for the next 10-15 years?? a little arrogant to say I would think, There is nothing to suggest he would do so.. Is he capable of scoring 40 probably (he hasn't done it) and keep in mind his 30 goal total is a little bloated since he scored 12 in the first like 15 games.. he has been a lot quiter since.. But the 10-15 years, hes a small guy, who knows if he even stays healthy that long, no to meantion your talking about him being a 600goal scorer, there are a lot of better players who never hit that mark.. is he as good as bure was, or selanne, or mogilny or yzerman, or roenick or (the guy who mentioned hull?? really??) Absolutely not.

    Re: kessel 30th in only 64 games!

    Everyone!

    Lets all get over how we got here.  It is irrelevent now...

    This will be a good trade for both teams in the end.  The Leafs get a bonefide scorer (they have only had 2 players score 30+ goals in the last decade!) for at least the next 4 years and the Bruins get an opportunity to add 1 or 2 impact players in the draft.

    I like where the Leafs are going and Kessel can only get better as he matures as a player and as a person.  I hope the Bruins continue to play well, move up in the standings and maybe knock off 1 of the top teams in the playoffs, especially if Rask gets hot.

    I rather see Hall or Seguin play in the OTHER conference (i.e. Edmontron or Columbus), but if there's a team in the Easter Conference that gets a crack at them I'd prefer it be Boston (not Tampa, Islanders or Florida).

    Burke is, I think, doing a good job so far fixing the train wreck that he inherited.  He will make many more moves in the offseason (as he should).
    PC, I think, is also doing a good job and this off-season will be key.  He may have underestimated the impact of losing Kessel and added some bad contracts but virtually every team in the League has 1 or 2 bad contracts to deal with.

    I'm warming to Wilson as a coach, especially after the Olympics.  I, sorry to say, am not a big Julien fan but the Bruins have been playing well as of late so he deserves some credit for that as well.

    Bottom line, I know Toronto is happy to have Kessel now and while he does need to improve on his overall game and conditioning, the kid can skate, score and create opportunities, exactly what he was brought to do.  PC made a good deal under the circumstances that has the potential to be a great deal depending on who they get in the draft and how that player develops.

    Over and out on the Kessel debate........
