[QUOTE]Always looking for a negative i was gonna post kess playoff pts but nola beat me to it. u sound like oj simpson dream team lawyers only they fabricated anything to get him off, and u guys just search for anything to defamate kess. Ok, so the first yr they played the habs kess scored 3 goals in 4 games. If i remember correctly cj benched him and they couldn't hardly buy a goal., Kess comes back and what do we have,here goals, BTW badhabitude habs finished first that yr and it was kess second yr in nhl. if i remember correctly and i have not searched this kess had 2 goals against canes. Now, wait a minute i guess he must of been faking his injury, i understand u expect him to dominate every series since the bruins are certainly not blessed when it comes to gs,but it doesn't happen like that. I am wondering why u take up every single chance to bad mouth this guy, yet the almost 4m$ man is on pace for hardly 10 goals and less then 40 pts. oh yes but he does backcheck, Alert bachckeckers are now the most precious commodity in all of sports. Be a backchecker a lousy gs and still make loads of money.enough with the backcheck crap , u let talent flourish u do not bottle it up. if u have not figured it out yet i am talkn about krejci. does he still play with boston. kess well to put it mildly sucked yesterday but it was only his 1st game against boston and bruins had redemption written all over them from the night b4,. Let's see if it continues. keep in mind tor is a basement team or close to it.

Marco, and Kessel fans,
You guys just don't get what I'm saying.
The role model for kessel should be Yvan Cournoyer.
My opinion is that Kessel's God given skills are probably BETTER than Yvan.
But Kessel is NOT playing up to his potential.
"Mildly" ??? Are you kidding ???
Backchecking is responsible hockey, it's half the game. What teams did you ever play for where the coach gave you a pass on backchecking?
I was not talking about the year the Habs finished first, I was talking about LAST year.
Do you like Savard? Were you happy with his play in his first 2 years with the Bruins? I wasn't. Savard grew up.
Expect him to dominate? Again, you must be kidding. Not yet, but don't you get it? This is a guy who CAN, but will not go in that direction. Even the greats have bad games, but you know they are there. If they are not scoring, they are working hard. Kessel wasn't even there yesterday.
Let me ask you - do you see ANY weaknesses in his game at all? If you don't, you have rose colored glasses on.
Let me ask you, could Kessel grow up with the Bruins? I would say no, no matter who's fault you want to say it is, he just wasn't going to grow here.
What about his team mates? A guy who doesn't give it all is not liked in the locker room. And he wasn't.
