[Wednesday FTB] Phil the Thrill Lives Up to His Name

Some links to read in between watching gifs of the Kessel goal. I never get tired of watching Phil Kessel, god among men, working his magic in the Leafs jersey. Last night's overtime-winning goal against the Colorado Avalanche, when Tyson Barrie was eating his dust as he shot one through Semyon Varlamov's five-hole, was exactly the kind of show that we have come to expect from Phillip Kessel. When he has the puck, there's a sense that we're going to see something special. For being the best thing to happen to the Leafs in a long time, Kessel has been the recipient of an unreasonable...

Kessel Doesn't Care About Your Opinion, He's Perfect In Toronto

Phil Kessel was made for the Toronto spotlight. Not because he basks in it or searches it out but precisely because he just doesn't care. Dude just wants to play hockey. Phil Kessel is the best player the Toronto Maple Leafs have seen in years. You can't argue against it. Over the last five seasons in Toronto, Kessel played 364 games tallying 333 points. He averages 20 minutes per game and is a player the Leafs cannot do without. He's 27 years old and in the peak of his NHL career. He matched a career-high in goals last season with 37 for 80 points. Two seasons prior he scored 82...
