Saturday's Dump and Chase: Kessel Crisis 2.0?

New, comments

Warning: this isn’t a 2009 flashback. I was a little shocked and caught off-guard when I saw an article last night suggesting that Nashville could be shopping for Phil Kessel. What? Yes the Leafs want change, yes they are cap-strapped, but still Kessel is the face of their franchise for better or worse. If you're the Predators then please don’t ship our first actually promising young forward prospects for an aging sometimes-superstar. It's just not worth it.
