In Response to Yet another Phil Kessel Thread
[QUOTE]Just wanted to see what the word on the street was regarding Phil Kessel and the 4-0 loss to Tampa Bay tonight, so I googled his name and clicked on News. It had a section of quotes that made me LOL, so I figured I'd share some. (No particular order, no dates, so I'm not implying this was all from tonight, just listed quotes attributed to him this season) "I had some good chances tonight but, again, I couldn't bury them," said Kessel, who led all shooters with his six but didn't seem too anxious to drive hard to the Boston net. "We were bad," said Kessel, rolling his eyes. "I can't have games like that." "I just had a bad game," he said. "What can you do? You can't take it personal. It's going to happen to everyone once in a while." "I could care less. Doesn't matter to me one bit," Kessel said, shrugging his shoulders and scrunching up his face. "I just couldn't bury my chances. What can you do?" "I had some good chances," said Kessel. "I just couldn't bury them. It just didn't go in. What can you do?" "We had a lot of chances on him, especially in the first period," Kessel said. "We could have a couple goals. The ref blew the one early there. Unfortunately they didn't go in for us tonight." "No, I had chances again tonight," Kessel said. "It's not like I didn't have chances. It just didn't go in, what can you do?" What CAN you do, Phil, what CAN you do? Seems he really doesn't care. Hey, I took some shots, not MY fault they didn't go in... "We have a lot of character in here," Kessel said.

I'm with you - but the posters who you (we) are addressing all disappeared - the ones who
"gauranteed that Kessel would outscore any Bruin by 10 goals."
True, Kessel isn't here, but the alleged "Bruins" fans have nothing to post when Kessel is on one of his TYPICAL droughts.
Anybody reasonable out there who thinks we should have kept this bum?
Still want to insist that Burke got the better of PC? If you say yes, you are reaching further than Chara with a stick longer than the one he uses now.
