Althought I agree, he is playing really well at the moment and I have always been a big fan of his, to say that he is the best player in the world right now is a little too much praise...

Phil's been playing well lately. 7G5A in 5 games is nothing to sneeze at. Best player in the game? no. No more than the Leafs are the best team in the league.

You know what author, even when Henrik or Daniel lead the leauge in points, not once did we post anything as stupid as you did. Despite leading the leauge in points 2 years in a row by 2 different Canucks we know Daniel or Henrik Sedin are not the best NHLers in the world, and the same with Phil Kessel.

Well, I , I feel very good about this draft, but I, I think, potentially you know were gonna have 3 or 4 NHL players out of this group, ummmm, you know like we are not going to prejudice to were they are from.

I think the point is he is on fire right now. He's definately not the most talented player in the league, but he has played the best hockey through five games.

Another great game for Phil The Thrill tonite with a goal and and 2 assists. I know it's early and all but I'm gonna go ahead and pencil him in for the Rocket Richard. :)

Very easy to start the season in TO. But injuries will start to creep up and the ceiling will cave in by December.

Hopefully he can keep up his play for the entire season.



*It'll make the Burke look good , even though he never got to draft Seguin and Hamilton.

Wouldn't it be neat to see if Kessel gets chosen before Ovie at the All Star Game this year and then have the tables turned, Kessel filming and laughing at Ovie Posted Image

HA HA that would be a pretty sweet, but Ovie needs to start putting up some points if he even wants to make the ASG this year.

I keep thinking it's only a matter of time before Kessel and the Leafs cool down and start to play sub-par hockey like they do every year, but damn what Kessel is doing thus far is remarkable, lets see how long he can keep this up for.

OMG SUNDIN.

I doubt this means anything but Kessel's been on fire ever since I've had him on my ultimate team. Which was just before the start of the season.

Kessel has had a great start to the season, I expect 35 goals and 70-75 points this year from the guy.

The Boston trade is still one sided though. Dougie Hamilton and Tyler Sequin will both be more valuable in their prime than Phil Kessel in his prime, so one of them might have been a fair deal. Both though... :picard:

No he doesn't, haha.


And on topic, Phil has really been playing well, and no, I don't expect it to last.

I think that the laffs have greatly benefited from getting to start their season at home for 5 games straight against (what look like) non playoff teams. What gets me is that they (like most teams in the east) dont even leave their timezone for about the first 6 weeks. They also get the luxury of playing at home almost every saturday. Talk about a candy a$$ schedule.

I'd like to see Phil the Thrill go into Detroit, Philly, Washington and Pittsburgh before we make any judgement on him. A defenseless Montreal and an atrocious Senators team would be an easy punching bag for anyone during a home stand. I hope the this facade ends soon or else we wont hear the end of it from the likes of TSN and CBC...i can picture their head line stories every night "and tonight Phil Kessel had chicken and potatoes for dinner".....
