So the rumoured Kessel extension is supposedly 8 years @ $8m per year

I like Kessel a lot but that's way too much money.

Only Stamkos, Giroux and Geno have more points that him in the last two seasons - he's in the same ballpark as them money wise

Dear Pittsburgh, please title your tweets better. sincerely me.

I mean, your average hockey fan is pretty homophobic already, don't make it so easy!

 

 

To me, Kessel is making way too much money, he's just not a franchise player, I don't think.  Yeah, yeah, I've heard the stuff about him being one of the few players to be in the Top 10 of goals and points in the last two seasons, he's also a streaky scorer who disappears for stretches and doesn't do a whole besides score (Not generally on the PK, doesn't do much defensively, has no physical game to speak of etc. etc.).  And, I know all about undeserved extensions: I'm an Oilers fan.

Not looking forward to the Sabres getting housed at Detroit tomorrow night, followed by everyone on the team blaming everyone else for it.

Kessel is a crazy underrated set-up guy. You look at the passing ability he displayed last season, and in years previous, and it's easy to see he's more than just a sniper. He's also improved a ton on his back checking, he's no Datsyuk in that regard but he's hardly a liability either. He still has the stretches where he can't score but he was still integral to the team and put up a bunch of assists during that time. The age he is, the shot he has and the all round game to go with it makes it a good deal for me.

Eight year deals are barely a good idea if you have Gretzky or Lemieux let alone Ryan Nugent-Hopkins or Phil Kessel. It's astonishing how far bent over the league is to the PA these days.

The only entertainment we are going to have all season is John Scott fighting people. In fact, I think that should be the top play in our playbook, where we send him out to clean house ala New Jack or 911 when we are getting beat.

Imagine if they played N.W.A. When Scott came on the ice ...

THAT WOULD BE AMAZING! As would the wailing and gnashing of teeth from the crusty old white people from the Buffalo sports media.

Andrei Markov is the worst. The absolute dirt worst. His NHL days are long over.

Leafs win.

 

Reimer playing spectacular.

 

Habs players getting stretchered.

 

Habs players getting knocked out.

 

Habs players turtling all night.

Don't worry Dubnyk gave it right back.

 

Spoiler alert: this isn't going to end 2-1.

This Oilers team does not seem much different than last year's team so far. I was promised defence by Mr. Eakins!

Dubnyk has looked shaky, but the Jets can't score. This is not a surprise.
