Kessel Book Closed- My Take as a Bruins Fan

Phil Kessel was never going to work out in Boston. He did not get along with Claude Julien and Kessel just did not want to play for the Bruins anymore. Almost everyone in the hockey world knew he would be traded.

That is why I feel the Bruins won this deal. They were able to snag two first round picks from Brian Burke and the Toronto Maple Leafs even though there was no competition.

The three picks they got turned into Tyler Seguin, Dougie Hamilton and Jared Knight. Seguin was part of a cup winning team and it remains to be seen about the other two.

Kessel has been a very good player in Toronto, but what they needed was picks to rebuild, and I feel the trade was not best for them. But it wasn't the best for Boston either.

Last season it made me laugh when fans said "We screwed Toronto!" Ummm, really? You gave up your best scorer and now are last in the league in scoring, and we screwed you? I don't think so. I feel Boston won this trade, but not by the margin Boston fans like to think.

The Maple Leafs have a young goal scorer for a long time, and in the end I think this may have worked out ok for Toronto.
