Hope Personified

"Hope costs nothing."
- Sidonie Gabrielle

That's not entirely true.

Hope - Phil Kessel - costs first and second round draft picks in 2010, a first round draft pick in 2011, and $5.4 million a season.

And you know what? He's worth it.

To all the haters:


It is now clear, Burke was right when he said a player like this doesnt become available often.

Marc Savard who?

Right on. Definitely more than advertised.

And shout outs to Nik Hagman too. He's been rather unworldly himself.

I'm not a huge hockey guy, but I don't think Kessel's skill will ever be in question. Hasn't he had a lot of nagging injuries though? And Will Carroll always likes to say that staying healthy is a skill, and some guys have it, and some guys - J.D. Drew, Nick Johnson - just don't.

The guy sure is delivering!! I still question the timing of the deal. Without the proper support along with him he may be a one man show. Thank goodness for Hagman right now. Give the other team something else to worry about.

Good timing or not though, I love watching this guy score goals for the Leafs.
