PHIL KESSEL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Maple Leafs roll to road win over Islanders

The cover photo of the Maple Leafs’ media guide has a smiling Phil Kessel and linemate James van Riemsdyk celebrating a goal. It was almost a case of false advertising until the pair lit up Long Island on Tuesday night. Two beautiful Kessel goals and one from van Riemsdyk led the way in the Leafs’ second big night in the greater New York area in less than 10 days. After routing...

Red Wings negate frustrated Kessel

It sure looked like a frustrating night in the Motor City for Phil Kessel and it went deeper than just being held off the scoresheet for a second consecutive night. There was a nasty slash to the wrist that sent him to the dressing room in the third period and a brief visit from team doctors. There was a comical, bumbled slapshot attempt from the point. And there was his role in...

Is Phil Kessel the best player on a Canadian NHL team?

Phil Kessel might have done something more than score the winning goal for the Leafs in the club’s overtime win against Colorado Tuesday night. He might have just helped make his case for being the best player on a Canadian-based NHL team. Kessel, ever since he came to Toronto five years ago an in much debated trade with Boston, has arguably not been portrayed as an “elite”...

Is the Best NHL Player On A Canadian Team An American?

from Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star, Phil Kessel might have done something more than score the winning goal for the Leafs in the club’s overtime win against Colorado Tuesday night. He might have just helped make his case for being the best player on a Canadian-based NHL team. Kessel, ever since he came to Toronto five years ago an in much debated trade with Boston...

Phil Kessel Can’t Shake Unrealistic Expectations In Toronto

After scoring the overtime winner Tuesday night against the Colorado Avalanche, Phil Kessel is second in Leafs’ scoring with 2 goals and 3 assists. He is also a minus 3 with 4 penalty minutes. Some might say that the value Kessel has added to the team has been washed out by his plus minus and yes, some folks still think that plus minus is a relevant stat for a player who is expected...

Kessel OT winner over Avs lets Leafs and fans breathe

It was Phil Kessel, the unlikely oracle of Toronto, who said it first. Guys, he said in his flat Wisconsin drawl, it’s game one. It was Friday and he said, you guys need to relax a bit here. And lo, the words were inscribed on the local parchment with appropriate solemnity, and then dutifully burned after the Leafs absolutely got creamed by Pittsburgh on Saturday night. Kessel...

Morning Line - Dave Hodge

My thumb is down to Phil Kessel, and I know—that means I have to stand in line. But really, shouldn’t Kessel think for half a second and realize that his best reaction to his part in Toronto’s season-opening loss against Montreal was not “you guys need to relax”? Nobody’s relaxing, Phil, except, perhaps, you in the Leafs’ Saturday night clunker against Pittsburgh...

Phil Kessel’s lazy summer days

Phil Kessel at Leafs training camp. Photo By Nathan DenetteWhen you think of Boston, you think of the “Big Bad Bruins.” Well, it turns out that for the upcoming season the Bruins rivals north of the border in Toronto are trying to emulate that mantra—at least the “Big” part. Following yet another disappointing season at the Air Canada Centre, Maple Leafs star forward and...
