    Kessel is KPD's new Thornton

    KPD gleefully mentions that Kessel only has one goal in his last 4 games.

    Leaving out that he would be leading the Bruins in goals after playing only 11 games.

    KPD sounds like alot of you on here, bitter people because Thornton and Kessel were run out of town. Both should have never have left and both are the most talented players that have been in Boston in a while.

    Thornton and Kessel were, and are, completely different -- polar opposites.

    I was glad to see Thornton go -- face it, he mailed it in three out of every four nights, if that.  He had no idea what being a captain, or a leader,  was about. He's a good player, but the problem was that the team looked to him to set an example, and he just didn't hustle that much.  Still doesn't.

    I liked Kessel and i still like him because he opens up the ice for the rest of the team.  Thanks to his speed and offensive strength he's a threat every time he touches the puck, and the other team knows that.

    People need to read between the lines. Kessel was the subject of intense trade rumors 4 times in the last 2 years. The Bs did not want him on the team - especially at $5M per year. Yes, he is a great player, but he did not fit the mold of player the Bruins are looking for. Clode preaches defense first, with the forwards playing an active part in the defensive end. Kessel was not willing to play that way. And as a result of his being the focus of so many trade rumors, he decided he did not want to play here as he was unwanted. There are many great players in many sports who do not fit into the system of a team. Barry Bonds was a tremendous talent, but not many teams were willing to have him play for them. Same with Terrell Owens. It is true that the Bruins could use his scoring now, but this deal should not be evaluated on the first quarter of this season, but on the long-term effect it will have on the team. This is similar to the Richard Seymour trade - it will weaken the team initially, but benefit the team in the long run. Both the Bruins and the Pats gambled (correctly in my opinion) that they would be able to withstand the initial hit and still be at the top of their games when playoffs come around and then reap the benefits of the trades in the upcoming drafts
