Ain't that a relief? Say what you will about how he was obtained (actually, I take that back, let's not say) Phil Kessel has been as advertised. There's more to his game than just goals. He backchecks, he hits (I've seen it!), he passes. He competes....

Let's say that together. Ready? 1, 2, 3...

He competes.

Don't that feel good? I know I feel better. In fact, despite however some games have gone, whenever Phil is on the ice, I can't help but smile, completely in awe of his skills. In the coming seasons, as the Leafs round in to form and are competing like the days of old, Phil will still be here, competing.

So, my intrepid Leaf-fan-brethren, take heart. Despite some individuals consternation, the outlook isn't all negative. As a wise man once said:

Playoffs!!!!1

Let's get to the links.
