Phil Kessel baby!
Yesterday the Toronto Maple Leafs snagged Kessel for 2 first round picks and a 2nd rounder. Kessel then immediately signed a 5 year deal with the ol’ Leafs. Umm… AWESOME.. McLovin! This guy is only 22 years old and had 36 goals last year for a team not all that blessed in the offensive category.
It’s not every day an American born player is itching to sign with Canada’s team (sorry Montreal, WE are Canada’s team). It’s also not every day I’m happy as a clam about an American born hockey player. But this guy is different. This guy is young, and this guy is GOOD!
