    Woo party time :handclap::yo::hyper:!

    Biggest issue has been resolved before the season is started. Now we've got our best player for a damn long time :).

    If he signed for 8M per, he left money on the table.

    Now we do not have to hear about his contract all year!

    I predict an awesome year, Kessel has evolved and his confidence has never been higher, no more monkeys, can't wait!

    Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC 6m
    Kessel contract language: cannot be waived or "loaned" (although very unlikely) during term of the eight year deal...(1/2)

    Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC 5m
    There is a list of eight teams he can be traded to, although if he plays as he's been playing the last couple of years, won't be necessary.

    Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC 4m
    I know you're going to ask who is on that list -- will be submitted on a yearly basis and doesn't have to be done now.

    So NMC and Limited NTC, just like this year.
     
  15. Cor.. he still hasn't signed.

    "Agrees for" was reported few hours ago. Is it really that important to be "the first one"? :help:

    So much for tanking. J/K

    It's a deal that makes sense. Since the Cap era began players of Kessel's age and skill level pretty much always get locked up by their teams before they hit free agency. The Leafs aren't doing anything unusual here.

    I sincerely hope this doesn't diminish Kessels already weak compete level. C'mon Phil let's see you repay the team for having this kind of faith in you. No lollygagging!!!

    BOOM. Despite what people think, that's actually about a 250k/yr discount.

    He was never going to get less than $8M.
     

  24. What? :shakehead
