The Phil Kessel Trade Playlist

New, comments

Allow us to provide you with a soundtrack for your heartbreak.

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

I cannot put into words the feelings of loss I am experiencing in the wake of the Phil Kessel trade. But luckily, a lot of others have.

I present to you the perfectly (poorly) curated Phil Kessel Trade Playlist:

You'll need some tissues for crying and a picture of Phil as you take a bittersweet trip down memory lane.

And for the piece de resistance:

And there he goes, so perfectly,
The kind of flawless I wish I could be
[Sidney Crosby] better hold him tight, give him all [his] love
Look in those beautiful eyes and know [he's] lucky cause
He's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only thing that keeps me wishing on a wishing star
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do

So I drive home alone, as I turn out the light
I'll put his picture down and maybe
Get some sleep tonight

Because he's the reason for the teardrops on my guitar
The only one who's got enough of me to break my heart
He's the song in the car I keep singing, don't know why I do
He's the time taken up, but there's never enough
And he's all that I need to fall into

Some bonus T Swift for all the fans in the house:

That wailing that you can hear all the way from here isn't me, I promise.
