I would not want Kessel.
I would not want Thornton.
I would not want Kovalev* (depending on which Kovalev shows up, but that's the problem)
I would not want Komiserak.
I would not want Phaneuf.
I would not want Montador.
I would not want Wideman.
I would not want Wheeler.
I would not want Ryder.
No matter what talent all of these guys have, they have one of the following faults;
just don't show up at the right time
they will disappear for multiple games
play for themselves
make the wrong play at the wrong time to kill momentum
seem like they are playing soft even if they aren't
seem like they are playing for themselves even if they aren't
do something totally idiotic
take stupid penalties
It is subtle, but it is important. I believe one big difference the Bruins are doing better right now is because they DON'T have Wheeler. He was a momentum killer in some odd way.
Guys like Marchand spark up your team. They will take one for the team. Other guys won't.
THIS YEAR ONLY
Who would I rather have than Kessel - just from the Leafs:
#1 Above and beyond Kessel by a mile - Grabovski.
For defenseman I would take Schenn.
