PHIL KESSEL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Video: Kessel and Booth briefly fight during practice

The Toronto Maple Leafs are a frustrated group and tempers finally boiled over during the team’s practice on Friday. Phil Kessel and David Booth engaged in a brief altercation during a scrimmage before it was broken up by the other players. These things happen and shouldn’t be blown out of proportion, but it’s difficult not to do so considering the team in question is the...

Toronto Maple Leafs: Struggling to win without Randy Carlyle

I never thought I would say this, but it actually looks like the Toronto Maple Leafs are worse without former Head Coach Randy Carlyle. The Leafs relieved Carlyle of his coaching duties on Jan. 6, making Assistant Coach Peter Horachek the interim head coach. At the time of Carlyle’s firing, the Leafs were 4th in the Atlantic Division with a record of  21-16-3. While this isn’t...

Air Canada thinks the Maple Leafs should trade Phil Kessel

                Toronto Maple Leafs star forward Phil Kessel has been taking shots from all sides since Tuesday’s firing of head coach Randy Carlyle, but no one was expecting the company that owns the naming rights to the team’s arena to publicly endorse Kessel’s departure. Maybe Air Canada can offer Phil a discounted ticket for that plane ride out of town. Clearly...

Phil Kessel goes off on Toronto reporter after pointed question

Any time that a coach gets fired, it makes for a tough and awkward time in the locker room. Players have to deal with the insinuation that the firing was their fault, and usually the players that are targeted are the best of the bunch.

Phil Kessel could not look less enthused in penalty box selfie

The only thing in life that makes Phil Kessel happier than taking a selfie is everything. The Toronto Maple Leafs forward headed to the penalty box two and a half minutes into the third period of Sunday’s game against the Ottawa Senators to serve his team’s too many men on the ice penalty. But it didn’t take long for there to be too many people near the box for Kessel...

Toronto Maple Leafs: Top 5 free agents to target

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ depth chart has a lot of holes. There is only 12 players signed to NHL contracts for next season, meaning a busy offseason for new president Brendan Shanahan. It will also be a very flexible one (he has $22 million of cap space to work with). Shanahan will be free to shop for anyone with the money and space that he has been provided. While most pundits...
